Now on to today's opening lights....
I have made a very quick vellum lantern.
Make one yourself in 5 minutes:
1. Cut a strip of vellum.
2. Run it through your Lacy Tree cuttlebug folder.
3. Use double sided tape to adhere ends to make a tube.
4. Embellish to your heart's desire.
Caution! You can only use battery operated candels.
I used a silver chipboard tree and pearl color beads to embellish my tree.
If you make one yourself please leave me a link so I can see it.
Your questiones answered:
I have been receiving some questions about my Christmas lantern so I will be posting all the answers here.
1. Paper size. I used a 4 1/2x 6 1/2 inch (11x16cm) strip of paper. It is not as high as my A2 embossing folder so I left out the lower part of the lace tree. The size actually doesn't matter. All you need to know is that you should use a long strip of paper. Try digging in your scrap stash for some of those. Idea: make a set of lanterns of different sizes for a beautiful centerpiece.
2. Embossing folders. I have used the *Lace tree* from cuttlebug, but you can use anything you have. You could emboss the whole strip or even leave it unembossed. Idea: try stamping on your vellum or try heat embossing. Punch holes for different effects.
