Anyway ...... back to the Luminaria. Tomorrow at Alice in Paperland I am teaching some ladies how to make these little lamps which are lit with battery operated tealights. Of course you wouldn't want to use regular tealights as there could be a disaster just waiting to happen - paper and flame just don't go well together.
For this luminaria, I have chosen to use some shimmer cardstock, vellum and silver snowflake stickers for decoration. I have coloured the insides of the snowflakes with a brush marker (coloured from the back for a soft look) and the windows have been cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities - Labels Eighteen.
From above you can see the tealight sitting in the base which is made from a piece of leftover cardstock with all four sides folded 1/4" and a 1 3/8" circle punched in the centre. This stops the tealight from moving around inside when it is being moved.
I'm sure the ladies will all have an enjoyable morning tomorrow. I know when I am crafting with others I always have a good time.
