So on a whim I put down that I would like to do it.
Thinking that I wouldn't be picked.
I am not that lucky.
However I was actually picked to do it!
I was going to meet Becca from Blue Cricket Design!!!
I had to drive about 45 minutes to get there.
But well worth it!
I got a loot of supplies!
All I had to do was create a project with these supplies and send her what I had done!
Pretty easy considering all that magic right there.
This is what I came up with.
Here is the
X Acto knife
Glue Tape Runner
Cut your foam board in half with the X-Acto knife.
Then separate the board into fours.
You won't want to press all the way through with the X-Acto knife.
Next draw out with a pencil how you want the center of your lantern to look.
Take your X-Acto knife and cut all along your lines.
Paint foam board to desired color.
Using the tape runner, glue all around the edges in the inside of the lantern.
Cut the vellum to size and secure to the inside of lantern.
With the cardstock cut our images you want to show through on your lantern.
I used my silhouette to cut these shapes.
Use the glue dots to secure cut outs on the vellum.
You will want these on the outside.
Put three or four more glue dots to the end pieces so they will stick together.
Then just sit back and marvel at just how awesome you are!
