Paper Bag Lantern
It's called a Paper Bag Lantern, and it was so easy to make. You can find instructions here. I used Bo Bunny' Kitchen Spice Ginger Paper and some matching Prima Flowers. Best of all? I used Pumpkin Face Mix-N-Match to make this beauty! I stamped the pumpkins on some Bazzill cardstock and then sponged one side to add a little bit of dimension. I used my Nestabilities to cut the ovals, and then added a little bit of vellum.
I'm not sure how well you can see it, but on the flower on the right side of the Lantern, the brad matched the flower almost exactly...that's because I used my Copics to colour it! I had heard of this before but never tried it. It worked great and was super easy.
I'd love to see your Paper Bag Lantern...hop on over to Splitcoast for the instructions, then link your here so that we can all check out your work.
