3D Snowflake Lantern Instructions
This cuttable template makes it easy to create your own paper snowflake lantern, perfect for winter and holiday decor. This cutting file template is available for sale online in the Silhouette Design Store.
You will need the following supplies to create this project:
Cardstock paper (I’ve used DCWV’s Shimmer Stack)
Battery Operated Tea Light (Optional)
Cut template pieces from cardstock and window pieces from vellum. Add glue to inside edge of window openings.
Place vellum over the window openings and allow the glue to dry.
Fold side tab, glue and adhere to the opposite side.
Fold into a rectangle cube shape. Fold up bottom flap and add glue. From the inside, press down tabs (with a craft stick) to bottom flap to adhere.
Fold in the top flaps.
Add glue to the top side tabs.
Adhere tabs to the inside top. Allow glue to dry.
Attach top handle strap with decorative brads.
Insert a battery operated tea light if desired.
SAFETY PRECAUTION: DO NOT use a candle, this could cause a fire hazard!
