Christmas Lantern Tutorial

I was LIVE on Heartfelt Creations today with EZ alternative ways
to use the Gift of Love Box Die! Here is one of them
and a step by step tutorial for you. Watch me LIVE HERE

Also see how I make these beautiful poinsettia flowers!

As soon as I saw this die I just knew I had to make a Christmas Lantern!
Here I show you how to make it with 4 sides, but check out my live
as I have a larger one that I made as well!


Step 1: Using black card die cut four of the box sides.

Step 2: Die cut the centre piece on all four sides and then fold along all
of the score lines and adhere the sides together. 
TIP: Glue the square part first and then the top pieces, it goes together easily.

Step 3: Adhere the base together.

Step 4: Using 3D silver stamp paint apply to the box to create
a metallic look. Apply from the left to right along each section using 
a motion sweeping across the box. Cut a strip of card 7 1/2" x 3/4" and
use the stamp paint on this also. This is the handle.
Using brads and a hole punch attach the handle to the box.

Step 5: Using Dries White glue and Frosting Powder create a snowy effect
over the box and handle and leave to dry.

Step 6: Decorate with the Sparkling Poinsettia flowers and add
a battery candle inside.

Happy Crafting everyone! 

To make the lantern I used the following:


  1. I love your lantern!!! I had a 10 year old neighbor girl here watching your video with me and she so loved what you did we made a couple of gift boxes ourselves having a wonderful time. Bethany also asked me to enter a comment as she would so love that lantern you made.

    1. AWW was! Sounds like you both had lots of crafty fun. Big hugs to you both. Xxx


I would love it if you left a comment ! Thanks for looking, happy crafting.
