Halloween is tomorrow so it means the Holidays are just around the corner…
I’ve been lacking inspiration to make anything lately but I finally was able to make something the other day. I’ve been pretty excited for the holidays so I made a winter themed lantern.
- Cardstock paper (I used the 110lbs one)
- Craft Blade/knife (I used a Silhouette machine to help cut this but a blade or scissors will work just fine as well)
- Clear plastic bags or sheet protectors
- Tape or glue
- LED light (optional)
- Download this PDF
First I cut out all the shapes. In the PDF, I’ve included a blank one so you could create your own design as well. You’ll need to print out either page 1 or page 2 twice.
Then I folded all the dotted lines. (The one I used in the photo actually doesn’t have the dotted lines but I’ve included them in the PDF so it’s easier to work with)
Then, I cut the plastic bags so that it will fit behind one panel/frame and taped them onto the back. Once that’s done, the trapezoid shaped areas that I folded before could now be taped onto the corresponding sides. I only taped one of the sides for the bottom so that it could be opened later.
I also bought a led candle to place it into the paper lantern and now I’m ready to decorate my room for the holidays.
Are you as excited for the holidays as I am?
