As we get closer to the end of the year that means two things, Christmas and the final chapter of 2021 (Chapter 4) here at Sizzix. Throughout this blog, I am going to create a step-by-step of how to make this enchanting paper lantern using the brand new Woodland Lantern Set (665490) from Sizzix Chapter 4.

This Sizzix Woodland Lantern by Kath Breen is a gorgeous mini lantern that channels the autumn/winter vibe. There's nothing more satisfying than layering together this intricately detailed Sizzix design and adding a flameless tealight candle to warm up those cold winter nights. This essential Sizzix Craft Die can be used as a small gift or favor box or even for something in the home, such as Christmas Tree Decorations.

6. Apply Express Glue along all of the tabs and adhere the lantern together. I recommend starting by securing the two lantern pieces together and then slotting in the base element.
