Little lanterns

Hello there
Today I am showing you the project from one of our most popular sessions

These little lanterns are simply small boxes and lids with extended corner strips and acetate side panels. They have a scalloped die cut square added to the top and base, and a small inside box base, with a circle diecut into the centre to hold the battery operated tealight candle in place. The box and lid side panels are decorated with papers and ribbon or glittered strips. The acetate panels are decorated with a glittered bird and leaves using the bird builder punch, and die cut glittered snowflakes . The smaller lantern has peeloff outline stickers which were coloured using glaze pens.
Top view of the lids. These have been decorated with papers, linen thread, punched and diecut leaves and snowflakes, and brads and ribbons. Glitter glue has been used around the edges of the lids and bases.
The lids are easily removed to turn your candle on and off.
Enjoy your little lanterns.
Thanks for visiting and happy crafting.
