Hello, crafty friends, Martha Lucia here with you! Summer is a party season, and today I prepared a party light decoration or lantern for our celebration using the Jewels Foiling Paper Variety Pack. I love this pack because it comes with a variety of Rinea's vibrant colors and I can choose and create with them whatever I want.
I bought a plain paper lantern at a party place and transformed it into a unique butterfly globe using a few elements: stencil, glimmer mist or spray inks, butterflies die cuts and the most importantly the Jewels Foiling Paper Variety Pack. But don't be afraid, I only used part of some sheets, and I have enough Rinea Foil to create several butterfly globes with one Variety Pack.
First I select a 12¨x12¨ stencil and put over the lantern when it was closed and sprayed with four different colors of Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist. I used these colors of Glimmer Mist French Lime, Verdigris, Bahama Blue, and Dragonfly. My lantern was mint color because I wanted a fresh look but you can find different colors in the store that you can combine perfectly with the Rinea Foiled Paper colors.
I cut different designs of butterflies using die cuts using Fuchsia/ Fuchsia Star Struck, Violet/Violet Star Struck and Blush/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. I just passed the Rinea Foiled Paper with the die cuts through my big shot. It cuts like butter, just work with the foil as you would work with your paper or card stock.
I opened and gave form to my lantern and left the stenciled part for the bottom part to simulate a garden. Then I started to paste one by one each butterfly that I cut using liquid craft glue. It works perfectly with Rinea Foiled Paper and keeps all the butterflies in place.
After pasting the butterflies, I molded the wings of them easily with my hands and created more lanterns of different sizes to complete the party decoration and have all ready to my celebration.
So what do you think? Will you create your own decorations for this summer? I would love to hear from you.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you were inspired here today.
See you soon!
