Snowflake Lanterns

When I saw this fun snowflake lantern by Jennifer Wambach in the Silhouette Store I had to make them.  I had everything I needed (I got a great deal on the flame less candles a few weeks ago) except the velum which I got quickly at Michael's.  I made the design as large as possible on my mat, then copied and flipped it so I could cut two at once.

I opted not to cut the velum with my machine as it was simple rectangles, so I measured and cut the pieces for each opening then used my ATG gun to tape them on to the paper lanterns.
The final step was taping the box together, I used a combo of ATG tape and super sticky red tape for this process.
In went the flame less candles and I had some simple gifts for my coworkers to go with some homemade yumminess. I hope everyone is gearing up for a wonderful Christmas. Tonight I take my daughter to see Annie as one of her presents and she has no clue..super excited for this! Happy  Holidays.
