Happy New Year- Let Me Light The Way

So thrilled to be working with the new PK Glitz  Vintage Hues Art Acetates . You can pop over to the PK Glitz store and check out all the supplies I used in my project.

Let me share my Lantern using just one of these NEW acetates.  

$4.95
New Year 1

I have a few pictures to share  of my steps along the way.Please stop over at PK Glitz Blog and see my steps and many links to several wonderful classes and great tutorials.
 Here is some of my supplies when I started my lantern project.Started by choosing one of the acetates I wanted to use and cut that one from the sheet of four.
 I LOVE, LOVE using this Crystal Clear with sticky papers as a mat and especially behind these acetates.
There are some wonderful classes with video of Janelle sharing some wonderful techniques RIGHT HERE
 Can you believe how spectacular the colors are on these acetates? I even had to show you with a paper behind

 Here are a few views  of some of my favorite glitter glitz gold.
 I chose to cut four of the die cut shapes,altered them and added them to a sheet of sticky paper. This is when I added the spectacular Crystal Clear  all over.
I chose to use a band in the corners  to hold my lantern together.

 Using strips down each side to assemble.
 Once my piece was assembled I added a few flowers to decorate the corners
A side view so you can see the corners and arches.
I had to share a view of my lantern lit from the inside-isn't it beautiful?
PLEASE DON"T USE A LIT CANDLE INSIDE PAPER LANTERN-BATTERY OPERATED IS BEST
So glad I got to share my Vintage Hues Art Acetates  
lantern with you today.
