Lantern Love with New DIY Stacks

Hello!  I have a fun project that is sure to light up your creativity, and get you busy crafting!  I've used the new DIY Luminaries Stack that is now available at Michaels Stores.  I said it in my last post, but I have to say it again I love the way these new DIY stacks literally take so much of the work out of their projects having everything easy to punch out and scored for you.  So let's dive in to today's project and photos...


Let's start with the basics... below I have a photo of how your project will look when you first tear the pages out of the stack and start popping the cutouts out...


You will need two of the bottom two pages and only one cut out for the top luminary.  I also suggest using a pin or a paper piercing tool (this is an inexpensive tool that can have lots of great purposes in your craft room).  Once you have them all punched out you will want to score along the score lines and add double sided adhesive tape along the one edge of each part and adhere the two pages together, or in the top ones case just adhere it to itself...


Here is what you will end up with.  Now you will notice I have added twine to keep the top of the smaller luminary together, but don't worry photos are provided in the back of the stack to show you how this is done.  I also wanted to show you some ways you could dress your luminaries up, so I've added some embellishments in my next photo...



I opted to use the smallest luminary as a treat holder, and I love it!  Although these would be super cute for wedding favors, and or with flowers as a center piece.  And I couldn't let you go without seeing one photo of the luminary in action, so excuse the darkness of the photo but I just love how it looks all lit up at night...



Thank you so much for stopping by today and we can not wait to see what you will make with your new DIY stacks, we love to see them on any of our social media sites!
Happy Crafting!
