The black paper I used was white on one side so all the edges needed to be inked, then after it was assembled I decided that I wanted to line the inside with yellow to give it a warm glow. It would have been easier if I made both cuts before I assemble it, but I learn as I go. So I cut the sides in yellow then trimmed the tabs so I could insert it. I am delighted with the effect. I drew the faces on the ghosts and applied them with glue dots.
The ghosts, scary tree and black cat were free files from SVGCuts
The bats and the flying witch are from a font called "Helloween version 2". The vulture is from a font called "Birds of a feather". I punched a hole in the witch and suspended her with invisible thread, the I covered the punched hole with a tiny circle. I used the same thread to create a line across the top of the lantern so she can fly;)
I created the cauldron from the flower pot topiary (included in the files for the lantern) by breaking the file apart then inserting an elongated oval from the basic shape library of SCAL and grouping them together. I punched 3 various size circles with MS screw punch from neon green to resemble a witches concoction bubbling over. The barely visible witches hat I cut by hand as well as the RIP grave stone. I created the little step in front of the door by scoring 3 - 1/4" lines folding and gluing. I had so much fun making and decorating this lantern and I can't wait to make another one. Won't this be an adorable addition to Halloween decorations? I think so.
Until next time thanks for visiting. I hope you find some inspiration.
