For this one I used coffee filters. Along time ago for another project I died them with tea bags and food coloring. I had a ton left over. When we finalized our color scheme I went through the craft closet to see what I already had that we could use and I came across the left overs. BINGO they were perfect.
So I glued a few to the bottom of mason jars we had on hand, added a piece of scrapbook paper and then layered more filters under that. I love how it turned out.
Here it is lit. The picture is fuzzy but you get the point.

Um… it’s very obvious that this is an untreated 12×12 scrapbook page. If you are looking for a vintagey feel, may I suggest looking into investing in a fiskar border punch. They usually sell for between $20-$30 at Michaels, but you can go online and get coupons. This would allow you to easily give this otherwise plain page, a beautiful lacy edge for little money and time. I’ve attached an image of the idea. Just a suggestion.

I agree, the scrapbook paper as is doesn’t fit the vintage feel. The rest looks GREAT!!! I think punch the edges as musicalrose suggests, or, they sell paper that looks like lace at the craft stores, which would look AMAZING!! prob would come out cheaper overall & less time involved than punching yourself 🙂
