  • For making this cute little lantern, which measures about 12 centimeters in height and 5 centimeters in width, we need to die cut four pieces of the main body , which need to be assembled by gluing the tabs to the edges of the adjacent die cut pieces.

Super simple and a quick to make. Fabulous gifting option. We celebrate festival of lights-Diwali in India every year in October/November and I think it would be a nice idea to keep a battery operated Diya/candle in it and it would make a lovely home décor piece. What do you think ? :)

See you all with a new make, next Tuesday.
