Whimsical Paper Lighthouse

So, a little sad that I am sharing the last couple of posts I will be doing for Core'dinations.  After almost a year of working with Core'dinations  and before that with Darice I have to say I am a bit sad that our relationship is ending.  Before I go though, I want to share with you a few fun things I made (oh, and I will continue to make with their papers....just so much fun).  So, without further ado.......my Whimsical Paper Lighthouse.

Whimsical Lighthouse Supplies:

Step 3:  For even more interest, sand the embossing to reveal the Kraft-Core underneath.

Step 4:  Continue embossing and sanding your pieces.

You can add a battery operated tealight or LEDs to your lighthouse to add a pleasing glow.
