Enchanted Lantern

Happy Tuesday! This week's Tuesday Throwdown challenge is "More Than One Fold." I am using this awesome Enchanted Lantern cut file provided to me by Creations by Ar. This was the first time I've used their product and I am loving it! 

 The lines are clear when I printed the pattern out. The instructions that accompanies the pattern is very clear to understand. After I printed my patterns files, I cut and embossed the cardstock. I then added some white paint for a distressed look. The handle was a piece of wire I wrapped in satin ribbon. I also distressed the lace flower using ink. The last thing I did was added a bow at the bottom of the lantern.
I also added clear acetate for the windows. I felt this gave the lantern more stability. The TT DT has also created some beautiful projects using Creations by Ar's patterns. Please visit the TT blog to view their projects and enter to win a fantastic prize from our sponsor.

I am in love with Creations by AR too, Kim! Such wonderful designs. Your lantern is spectacular all the way down to the clear acetate windows. How cute would this be with a battery operated tea light! Great project, fabulous papers. Happy St. Patty's Day! xx Donna K

Hi teamie, This is my favorite! It would be so cool as a table decoration with a little battery tea light inside! Like how you added the white to the CS and the acrylic gives it a great look! Well done! Hugs, Debi
