A few weeks ago I shared this photo on my Instagram.
And I had people on Facebook and Twitter asking for a tutorial, so I made a video which you can see here...
ClearScraps acrylic sheets are so very fun to work with, especially when you die cut, emboss, and ink them up with a bit of Stazon. hee hee
Then, the question arose, what do I do with these leaves I made. Well, I told you recently how much fun I have been having with the files from svgcuts....so I decided to make this lantern. Seriously, this took me so long to cut. But it was all worth it in the end.
Core'dinations Basics Neutrals cardstock and Core'dinations vellum. They both cut so beautifully on my new Cricut Explore (once I got the stupid program to run properly....ugh, shockwave).
I added my fall leaves, lots of trims and a bit of ribbon...and of course a few flowers from the stash.
And then I gave it to a friend. hee hee. You can add a little battery operated tealight inside to make it glow, which was hard to photograph, just saying. I wouldn't advise using a candle, as....well, this is made of paper after all and lighting your home on fire would not be a good way to start the holidays.
