Dragon LED candle lantern

Hi everyone, DT member Jeanin here with another fun project. I thought the dragons from the new "Dragon Festival" stamp set would be perfect to decorate a lantern. So I created a simple lantern cutting file and cut it from dark red card stock. More information on how to get the cutting file will be below.


Then, I cut four pieces of vellum which were a bit larger than each window of the lantern to be able to glue to the inside. Before assembling, I decorated each window and stamped the cute dragons, lanterns, and Chinese symbols on the vellum with VersaMark ink and embossed them with white embossing powder.

I also did some basic Copic coloring with red and yellow markers. Tip: To avoid coloring the white embossing powder color the images from the back side. 


Then I adhered each vellum piece to the frames and assembled the lantern.

Please only use these lanterns with LED candles and NO real candles due to fire hazards. 

You can download the cutting file for the lantern from my website here.
