Votive Candle Lantern
I was at Joann's last week and picked up a project sheet that I liked that I wanted to try to create something similar with my Cricut. I got the chance today. I created all of this on my Gypsy. I started with a square from Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and re-sized it so it was 12" X 3.5". I then took the scalloped border from Plantin school book sized it at 1" X 6" and then copied and pasted it again on my rectangle next to the first one and grouped all the images together and welded them together. I then took the circle again from Plantin Schoolbook and put 1/4" circles in each scallop. For the cutouts on the actual lantern I used some leaves from Storybook at 1 1/4" a flower from Accent Essentials cut at 3/4" and a tear drop from Sweet Treats which I think is actually the flame to a candle cut at 1/4". I used a small square glass candle holder I got from the dollar store and wrapped the cutout around it. I used some Scor-tape to secure the edges together. I didn't have one of those flameless candles so used a small tea light to take my picture but for safety sakes would use those flameless candles. I created the project for the 3 +1= Success Challenge on the Gypsy Chat thread on the Cricut MB.
