The kit contains svg files of all of the pieces needed to create this lantern. I used my Cricut Expression with my Sure Cuts A Lot 2 software, but I could have used my Silhouette or any electronic die cutting machine that can cut svg files. I used a metallic bronze card stock (Recollections) and vellum for this project. Once all of the pieces were cut out by my electronic die cutting machine, I assembled and glued everything together and ended up with this amazing lantern! A battery operated tea light placed inside makes the lantern glow. (Don’t use a real candle!!!) SVGCuts has great tutorial videos that go with each of their their projects to help with assembling the pieces. (HERE is the You Tube video link for this project tutorial, or you can watch it on their site as well.)
This lantern can be assembled with any paper you choose. Also provided in the svg kit is a plain panel to which you can add your own design so it can be made for a variety of occasions. I actually made a beach themed lantern a while back for a challenge on stamptv. (HERE is the original post.)
Thanks for checking out my project!
