Karin is with us today to share another beautiful craft project! This time she created a lovely lantern table decoration featuring Secret Garden Window.

The lantern comes together so quickly with just three die sets: Secret Garden Window, Stitched Scalloped Borders to add detail to the top edge and Spring Flowers Backdrop for pretty floral detail. Place a battery-powered votive inside to light it up.

The flower detail is so delicate and pretty!

Karin started by cutting two white cardstock panels 6 1/4 x 4 1/4. Then she scored each panel at 1/4″ and 3 1/4″ on the long side. Next, she die-cut the scalloped border on the top and cut the flower window twice on each panel.

She used the arched die from Secret Garden Window to cut four vellum pieces which she attached behind the garden windows. Then she used double-sided tape to attach the panels together to make the four-sided lantern.

Karin cut flowers and leaves from Spring Flowers Backdrop and colored them with Copic markers. Then she attached them to the floral windows with glue dots.

Set the lantern on a table with a battery-powered votive. The diffused light from the vellum is so pretty!

It makes a pretty decoration for a party or a special dinner!

Thank you for inspiring us today, Karin! Your lantern design is so beautiful!


Thanks so much for visiting, have an amazing day!
