Here's how you make them. Start with a 6" x 9" piece of Designer Series Paper. With the 6" side going across the top, score your DSP at 1/2", 3", and 5 1/2". Fold your DSP in half along the 3" score mark and open it back up.
Decide which side of the DSP you want on the outside of your lantern, and have that side facing up. Fold along the 1/2" and 5 1/2" score marks. Adhere those two flaps down using sticky strip. Your DSP should now look like this.
Rotate your DSP so the 9" side is going across the top. Cut slits every 3/4" from the top flap down to the bottom flap. Do NOT cut through the 1/2" flaps you just glued down. After you're done cutting slits, add sticky strip down one side and glue the two ends together to form your lantern.
For the handle you need a 2 1/4" x 6" piece of DSP. With the 2 1/4" side going across the top, score your DSP at 3/4" and 1 1/2". Fold it into thirds along the score lines and adhere it together using sticky strip. Attach it to the lantern using a 1/16" hole punch and silver brads.
Finish off your lantern by adding some flowers. Carrie used the Stitched Exotics stamp set for her flowers. Since I don't have that set, I used my 5-petal punch and punched some flowers out of matching DSP. For the center of my flowers I used the 1/2" circle punch. I used dimensionals to adhere the flowers to my lantern.
There you have it. Another quick, cute project. Thanks Carrie!
