Happy 4th of July

We're continuing our weeklong Independence Day/4th of July theme .
Check out this fantastic project!

USA Lantern

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!

Supplies Used:
Imaginisce: Patterned Paper (Perfect Vacation), Itop, Irock
American Crafts: Cardstock
