Small Floral Hanging Lantern

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! Today is not my posting day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog but I’ve popped in to share an extra DT inspiration project with you, a sweet little hanging lantern created with the free (ySimply Crafty SVGs Mini Hanging Lantern cut file. How cute would it be to create several of these and hang them around the deck or patio for a birthday party or a summer get-together?!


The sky is the limit for choosing papers for these! I chose a heavy kraft cardstock for the base and then a pretty floral print for the panels.


The finishing touches were a few pink gemstones to give this lantern a little pizzazz and some pink and white Baker’s twine. Love how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
