Paper Luminary

I wanted to create a soft ambience for an outdoor occasion like baby shower, wedding reception or just to enjoy a glass of wine on the deck. The thought of creating a simple luminary came to mind for a perfect summer’s night!

Take a 12 x 6” cardstock and score at 4 and 8” on the long side. Then score a 4 ½ x 6” cardstock at 1/8” on each side. I cut/embossed a shaped die in the middle of each panel to create a window. Emboss four 4 x 5” vellum paper and adhere with The Best Glue Ever. It won’t wrinkle and sets quickly for a strong bond.

Add the flower and frame with the Best Glue Ever. The glue tip makes it so simple to apply on the most intricate cuts. I moved my die cuts around so when the glue dried, it left a tacky residue BUT that was resolved with a quick swipe of the Perfect Crafting Pouch! Then assembled the luminary and it’s ready for display!

With this idea as the base, you can make it as elegant or as FUN as you please. So with ScraPerfect products at your finger tips along with cardstock, vellum and some bling, you’re off to a good start!
