Favorite Project

When we were at the Wedding Expo, a lot of brides-to-be mentioned that they had picked brown and pink for their colors with a cherry blossom theme. Here is one project that a lot of the guys were interested in making.

It's a version of the Vellum Lantern using  the Sizzix Cherry Blossom branch die to decorate the side panels.
Inside of the lantern, we use battery operated T-lites to create that romantic candlelight mood. In this pic, it looks more Halloween-ish but IRL it looks good with the candle flickering inside.


If you're curious as to how it was made, here's the instructions. In the past, we've used printed vellum or plain vellum with stamped images. This also makes a one-of-kind gift if you print out photos or favorite sayings onto the vellum and use that for the panels.

Thanks for taking time out of your day to stop by! Happy Crafting!
