Lantern Tutorial

Let's get started!
Step 1
To make this lantern start by cutting 5 Gift of Love Box die cuts out of white card stock. Fold along the score lines and sponge gold metallic ink to the score lines and edges.
Step 2
Cut windows from each panel with the insert die that come with the Gift of Love Dox Die. Adhere vellum inside of each window opening.
Step 3
After the glue is dry, adhere the box together (start with the long straight edges, gluing all panels together before starting on the middle section of tabs). This makes it much easier to put together.
TOP TIP Adhere the top section of tabs together last.
Step 4
Cut out 3 each of the Sweetheart dies (you will need about 2 2/3 of the wide border and 2 1/3 of the narrow border). Score the wide borders at 1 1/2 " then 4" on all 3 pieces (The last piece will be cut to fit, either 2 ends over-lapping a bit in the center or just center 2 1/2 " section for the last side of lantern).
The narrow border is scored in 1 7/8" sections to fit the top sides of each panel.
Glue the pieces to the lantern (top narrow border will need to be clipped at each corner to lay flat). Add pearls to the top of the narrow border and add larger pearls to key points of the wide border.
Step 5
Make several roses to decorate the lantern. There is a video here to show you how you can easily make EZ beautiful flowers with the 3D Rose Shaping Mold.

After shaping and gluing together several roses (gold metallic ink was used to stamp the roses), adhere leaves where you want the roses to go on the lantern and then glue the roses on top of the leaves to finish decorating.
Just add a battery operated tealight to finish! We love to see the projects you make, please share them with us on our Facebook page HERE.
