Scrappy Lantern for the very first time

Hi everybody, is me Rebecca again. How is your weekend doing? 
Well, for me, I've try with something new and it's absolutely out from norm, that it's my very first scrappy lantern.

In my country, we don't celebrate Halloween, but we do celebrate a festival call Mid Autumn Festival, and lantern is one of the must have item for Mid Autumn Festival.

This lantern is made by disposable chopstick (you may replace it with any wood stick), manila card, border puncher and some hot glue and thread. 
As the lantern have 4 side, i decorated each side with different design.


The first page i'm using House a home kit from Unity Stamp. As the current popular trend is on water color, I colored the background using distress marker with water.


For second page, i'm using the Distress paint from Tim Holtz, and the flower stamps is from Better together kom 7/11 from Unity Stamp. 


For third page, i'm using Heidi Swapp color shine spray paint. The stencil is from Kaiser Craft and the sentiment is from Perfect in every way kom 6/09 from Unity Stamp.


For the fourth page, i choose to used pastel to color the background, then i stamp up the image and sentiment from Insightful meadows kit. I just love this kit so much as it's so pretty that you can use for any occasion!


This is how the lantern look like when i light up with tea candle.


This is another side of the lantern.


This is inside of the lantern, so simple yet so useful!

 From the picture above, you will notice that the lantern is not bright because the manila card is thick, therefore i have create another lantern using tracing paper!

 For second lantern, i decided to do another design and this design is obviously different from the first lantern. 
I used tracing papers, white card stock, border punchers, and a lot of Unity Stamp to create the lantern.


This is so bright after i light up with candle and i'm very satisfy with the lantern!


This is my favorite page as the image is so beautiful.


Taking picture from another side.


This is the first page, i'm using same Insightful meadows kit from Unity.


For second page, I'm using the sentiment Everything in love and Bitty flower background Itty Bitty stamp from Unity.


For third page, i'm using Donna-poppies by Donna Downey kit, and the sentiment is from all about hope kit and Faith begins from Unity Itty Bitty. 


As for the last page, i'm using Phyllis Harris let-love-fly kit.

Although both lantern is rather simple, but this is my first scrappy lantern and i hope that you will like it too.
