3-D Lantern

Hello everyone! This is Angie from Angie's Paper Passion with a 3-D lantern from Cricut Exclusives, 3-D Lanterns. I absolutely love making these and they'd also be great for decorating for parties! After I made the last one, my little granddaughter wanted one for her room in her favorite color - purple.
Here's what I made for her:

I added a handle made of cardstock and strips of vellum. 
And of course she had to have bling on it!
I decided to try cutting out the rolled flowers out of vellum instead of cardstock and I really like how they turned out! These flowers were cut out with the Artiste cart at 2.5" and 2". Just remember to change your settings (pressure, blade depth, & speed) on your machine when cutting something as thin as vellum.
She turns on the little light under her lantern every night before going to sleep and thinks about her Grandma!
(OK, I just added that last part myself but I'm pretty sure she 
really does thinks about me every night!)

Thanks for visiting - I hope you like today's project!
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
