One of my favorite parts of the holidays and winter, in general, is the softer lighting it brings...not only from the sun but with candles, Christmas trees, and luminaries. Today I thought it would be fun to create winter-themed luminaries using the Frosted Foiled Paper Variety Pack.
I used snowflake panel dies from Spellbinders but you could easily substitute any dies in your stash or hand-cut various designs by printing them off a computer. I have found that coloring book line arts work well for this application.
Step 1 - Adhere the foiled paper for the frames to a piece of lightweight chipboard to be used for the walls of the luminary. I used all three colors from the Frosted Foiled Paper Variety Pack for the walls of my luminary: Turquoise, Silver, and Sapphire in both the Glossy and Starstruck textures.
Step 2 - Die-cut the walls using a stitched scallop edge square die.
Step 3 - Die-cut the vellum windows using a plain or stitched square and finally cut the snowflake panels from the Turquoise, Silver, and Sapphire foiled papers.
Step 4 - Adhere the vellum windows to the luminary walls.
Step 5 - Glue the snowflake panels to the luminary walls.
Step 6 - Cut a 1/2" strip of foiled paper and fold it in half. Use this strip of paper to adhere to the 4 walls together as shown.
