Halloween Lantern


It's What a Treat Wednesday with My Creative Time, and today I made a fun lantern using a Silhouette cut, which I altered with some My Creative Time dies!  To do so I added circles to the lantern cut file that were slightly smaller than the larger size circles I would be cutting with the dies.


Then I used the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies to cut circles of vellum and to make black rings to glue on top of that.  For this window, I also added a spiderweb and spider from Wicked Fun Dies.


I used the next smaller sized circles to make this window and added some bats, also from Wicked Fun Dies.


Here's how the lantern looks with a LED tea light candle in it.  Spooky!

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have to share with you today!
