Ekkk not long now! If like me your still big kid at heart you'll be all excited that its nearly time for Santa to come! I'm all ready super hyper, my big brother gets home later today and literally can't wait too see him! Best Christmas gift ever hehe
Ok enough of my hyperness
This week at Clare Curd I created a wee last minute Christmas decoration using my trusty Cameo
Isn't it cute and perfect for one of those faux flicker candles or some sweeties for a lucky friend!
Firstly I opened the file up on my laptop and cut it out on the delish Recollections Botanical Noel papers and the other panels in some turquoise vellum from my stash
I then went round all the edges with a turquoise marker as you can see below. I feel it helps the Snowflakes stand out better
Next I stuck down the vellum on the inside of the holder making sure I added glue to the snowflakes so they wouldn't move about and get damaged. Below shows all the panels on. All that's left is to glue the tabs and stick it all together
above you can see I have added the handle using brads but you could always just stick it with glue
Next I added gems and glitter to finish
Its a nice wee easy project and would be great with the kids! You could make lots and have them all hanging like a lantern bunting! A great wee Christmas project!
I hope you enjoyed my simple wee tutorial! You can find the lantern decoration file here if you want to have a try yourself!
Take care and all have a great weekend! I know I will
