It's Barbara here with the next project for Ali-Craft.
Ali sent me a set of stamps by Jo-Firth Young called Jofy 5. They are a Christmas themed set of stamps.
I wanted to make something other than a card this month, whilst perusing the internet, I came across a paper Lantern, The instructions were in Norwegian and the measurements were in Centimeters.
Anybody who knows me well, will remember that I only work in inches, Sorry I just cannot get into Centimeters, so I converted all the measurements into inches and used google Translate so I could understand how to put it together.
I did have to make a few adjustments here and there, it is not exactly like the one I found as I missed the cross on the windows and I also built a base for the tea light ( Battery operated) to sit into. For that I used my Silhouette Cameo, well I say mine it is actually Hubby's but I have it on long term loan LOL.
So here it is.
Here are a few more pictures of my Project

When I find the website I found this Lantern on, I will edit this post.
I do hope you enjoyed my Project for Ali-Crafts this month.
Please pop back soon as I am working on a Tutorial for this, going to take a wee while as I have some other bits and pieces I need to do first.
