Pretty paper lantern–paper craft

I have a new found respect for paper crafters; it is time consuming, detailed and intricate. Probably why I haven’t attempted many paper crafts in the past.

I found a paper lantern on Pinterest that was captivating and so pretty, that I thought I could definitely give it a try.  Here is my result.

I decided to use pink and grey as the main colours and the whole time couldn’t help but think how pretty this would be in a baby girls nursery.  I cut all of the shapes with my cricut and hot glued them on. Nothing too complicated, but time consuming.

  8. Congratulations on being featured on Positively Splendid, Mel! This is gorgeous :) I have downloaded so many flower shapes to cut with my Silhouette but I have made very few projects with them. This was definitely worth the time it took to put it all together!
