Hello my friends and fellow crafters! For today's post, here is a cute little project using the Sizzix Butterfly Lantern die. What fun these little lanterns were to create. I placed tea lights inside them and they are just darling. I could image using these at place settings for a dinner party or for a holiday tablescape.
The lanterns were cut on heavy black cardstock (the kind that Michael's sells now) Viva Inka Gold paint in silver was rubbed onto the cardstock to create this beautiful metallic antique look to the lantern.
As you can see I used various colorations of flowers for the lanterns. The Flowers were created with Tim Holtz Tiny Tattered floral die. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.
These are just so pretty. So many possibilities. In fact, I did them in another configuration that I will be posting soon. So keep checking as I have lots more projects to share. Until next time, Happy Crafting!
