tealight lantern

afternoon all

well i thought i would try something i have never made before

a tealight lantern 

a scaned the magnolia image after stamping it so i could make it a little larger

i then printed it and coloured it with my copics

i cut 2 pieces of cardstock, then punched around both pieces with my martha stewart punch 

one for the base and one for the lid 

i made a box lid for the top and bottom 

i cut 4 side panels which i glued to the box lids

the roof took me quite a bit of time to get it right 

i used a square piece of cardtock which i cut into 4 

traced and allowed a little edge before i cut them out for me to glue them together 

i then decorated it 

what fun i had 

thankyou for looking

    I have try, some times, to send you the TOP3 Button from Magnolia Mania, but it is not possible. The mail comes every time back. Can you check it why it does not work?

    Hugs Nicole
