Dimensional Flower Paper Lanterns

Pin it here.


Today, I am excited to share with you the results of our first monthly craft evening. There are three of us ladies {plus several tween/teen daughters} that have decided to meet once a month to try out a new craft and to work ahead on making Christmas gifts.

We take turns hosting and this week it was my neighbor’s turn. She chose this fabulous paper lantern craft she came across on Pinterest. You can get the step by step instruction and free templates at A Piece of Rainbow.

To make the lanterns all you need is card stock, vellum, tape, an exacto knife and tall glass vase {which we found at Walmart in the artificial flower sections for under $1.} You will also need a little patience and a steady hand. :)

Well, I think this was a well chosen craft. Thanks dear neighbor for hosting and teaching.
Aren’t the results stunning?

    This is absolutely fabulous Monica! Pinning and sharing.
    I have never seen anything like this before and seeing it is giving me some ideas!
    Has your group tried that beautiful quilling you posted? Perhaps some felt ornaments? Can’t wait to see what your group creates next, please share.

  • These are beautiful! My daughter and I made candles for Christmas presents by printing photos on vellum and adhering them to candles such as these. Maybe we can try some of these now.

    I like the vellum and pictures idea. Those would make great gifts for the grandparents.

    Thanks for passing it along, Laurie! We did make quilled candle holders this past Christmas. They were a hit.
    I’m really curious if there’s a project we could make with the metal embossing technique you shared on your blog. Any ideas?
