Check out this fantastic project!
The 4th of July is a great day to put out some fun decor and Imaginisce has some papers in the Perfect Vacation line that work just great for creating those projects! Today I have a patriotic lantern to share with you.
I used a cut file to create this lantern that you can add a little electric tea light to for the evening hours. Because the file comes with stars think of all the possibilities you could create with it! You could do a baby shower decoration or a Christmas decoration all by using different lines from Imaginisce!
I cut the base in a dark blue patterned paper and then did the stars in some red paper. I decided to just do USA in plain white so it wouldn't get lost in the patterns. Some Red Irocks were the perfect embellishment.
To add some embellishing to the lantern I created a couple of Brads using my ITop and the same red patterned paper I had used earlier. Not too overwhelming but adds some nice dimension and makes my embellishments one of a kind!
