The lantern is constructed in parts with one layer, some with 2 layers, and still others with 3 layers of chipboard. I came up with a way to disguise those layers using ribbon rather than strips of cardstock, and show you how to do that on your project.
Measuring 20" in height and 6" x 6" square, the base contains a drawer that holds a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 2 1/2" mini album.
For those of you wanting to use the same designer paper, I used Carta Bella's "Christmastime" collection. This paper is more like cardstock and works well for this project.
Once you have all your chipboard cut, and layers glued together, this lantern comes together fairly quickly. I found the mini and the embellishing to take little longer. You can of course embellish as little or as much as you like.
For the rest of this post, there will be a few more photos, and the walk-through video tour of this project, along with the link to get the instructions.
The mini album photos are included at the end of your written instructions so you can see nearly every page. Enjoy the walk-through tour of this project.
