Lantern Mini Scrapbook

lantern mini scrapbook finishedThis fabulous Lantern Mini Scrapbook was a contest submission by Giniew. I love her style and I am constantly skipping over to her blog for inspiration, I can't read a word she says on her blog but a picture says 1000 words... or something to that effect.

Inspiration :

I’ve got a lantern in my kitchen, a red one, and one time I was taking pictures of details in my kitchen to make a mini-album, and I thougt that it would be great to create something like to show different pictures.

Scrapbook products used :

All papers are SEI Ally’s wonderland. You will need also 2 sheets of Bazzill paper and a piece of thin cardstock. I use severals embellishments like Prima Flowers, some felt embellishments, a few buttons and Making Memories brads and some SEI stickers.

How to make the lantern:

First step:

Put a rectangle of cardstock 18 * 4 3/8 and fold it into 4 squares each 4 3/8. There is still a rectangle to glue it at he end.
Then cut off 4 windows (3 1/8 * 3 1/8) on each square.

Second step:

cut 2 squares of cardstock 5 * 5 and 2* 2 squares of pattern paper to cover these squares. Don’t forget to make round corners.
Cut 4 squares ( 4 3/8 ) of pattern paper to cover the body of the lantern and glue them on it.
On the back, use your knife to cut off the windows. And glue the body to make a cube.
