Flower Lantern

Happy Birthday Sister, have a great day.
If you have not visited Hazel her Blog is worth a look.  Hazel makes cards but her main thing is her Gift Baskets, Gift Bags and other containers.

Hello Bloggers, thank you for your visit.
I have been pressing buttons in all directions, I think I have finally cracked this Windows10.  What a right pain it has been.

Today I have a Lantern?box with flower and leaf decoration.  I have made rather a lot of these, they take some time to make but worth every minute.  I have made some as Gift Boxes and  popped a gift inside, others I have made as a lantern.  If I make it as a lantern I put a Battery Candle in them.  I do warn the people I give them to NOT to use a real candle.

 Black 300gsm card
Crafters Companion Create a Card Die.
Acetate for the windows
160gsm Yellow paper/card for the flowers
Leaf Die
Organsa ribbon

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for your comments and for taking time to call by
