I used SVG Cuts files for this whole project:
And the cute paper is from imaginisce.
I added some fun embellishments like the buttons with Trendy Twine, and some hemp and copper brads.
I also added some dimension to the base of the lantern by embossing my paper.
Ok, are these bears not the cutest ever?!? I want all of my outdoor projects to have those bears, in fact I just want to cuddle them! Ok, well maybe not THAT cute, but they are my favorite embellishment on the lantern...and they're roasting a marshmallow...hee hee.
Here's a peek-a-boo at the back...where I have my color changing light that I got at Joann Fabrics.
That was so fun to make, just keep in mind while gluing the vellum that it's a little tricky to get it lined up just right, so that's why I added the twine...covers all my imperfections :)
