So Stunning Christmas Lantern

Create the So Stunning Christmas Lantern this season. This gorgeous paper craft simply cannot be beat. After all, there is something so festive and so cozy about using lanterns around Christmas time! Though this project is made out of paper, don't worry - you will use a regular light to shine through instead of a candle. The four panels feature Christmas greetings in a vintage font, and the damask patterned paper and poinsettias are a wonderful touch. This craft would make a great gift idea as well. Celebrate Christmas by making this lovely Christmas paper craft.

So Stunning Christmas Lantern


  • Christmas Poinsettia PreCut Set
  • Festive Christmas Background PreCut Set
  • Sun Kissed Fleur Die
  • Festive Christmas Paper Collection
  • Art Institute Glue - Dries Clear
  • White Card Stock
  • Vellum
  • Distressed Inks
  • Metallic Gold Ink
  • Antique Gold Embossing Powder
  • Pearls
  • Lace and Ribbon
  • Die Cutting Machine


1. Start by cutting the 4 sides of the lantern out of white card stock. There are a lot of free templates out there.

2. After the sides are cut out, attach together and top with another piece of paper from the Festive Christmas Collection to dress up the top parts of the lantern.

3. Before you glue the lantern closed, stamp your favorite image on vellum and emboss with Antique Gold Embossing Powder.

4. After all 4 panels are completed, fasten them to the inside of the body of the lantern so the light glows through.

5. Decorate and of course, do not forget to add a pretty flower or two! Stamp with metallic gold ink, distress and die cut out some of the lovely Christmas Poinsettia PreCut Set, assemble and finish it off in the center with a sparkly gem!
