Paper Lanterns

It’s a blog hop from Creations by AR! That was my take with the new Enchanted Lantern Template.  Yes, that’s right, Adela is giving away the Enchanted Lantern Template.

Here’s a few more pics of the Lantern!

Put a battery operated tea light in … no flames with paper & check it out:

I love the details that Adela puts in her designs:

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did making it.

Come check out what the Design Team girls have made with this new Template:

Tea Light Upcycled

This week’s 3D Challenge at Paper Craft Planet, 3d210, “Out with the Light, In with the Holder”, is making a little tea light photo holder.  You could use this holder for a party for place cards or for business cards or for photos. {That’s a baby photo of my middle guy, Malcolm, what an easy going baby he was}

Several years ago, I had an impulse buy while in the check out line at IKEA.  100 tea lights for $2 or something like that.  I still have a bunch of these tea lights about the house.  Once they have burnt out, I normally toss the tin in the recycle.

This time I easily cut the tin in two pieces with scissors.  An idea that I saw floating around a while ago & thought it was brilliant.

Adhere the bottom of the cut sides together, leaving the rounded top part open to insert a photo.

In 30 seconds, you have a simple recycled holder.  I think I’ll use this one at the preschool for Clifford’s 50th birthday party.
