In my dreams our back yard is finished and we have floating lanterns nestled in the pecan tree. We have dinner parties and after dinner parties. We kick back in a hammock and enjoy twinkle lights. Of course, it's been so beautiful here lately that one can't help but dream of such things. Today I tried out tiny paper lanterns. There's a template in the box if you want one. Not that making paper lanterns is hard or anything, but I was using digi-paper [Splendid Fiins Very Krafty Mixed Bag + Too Cool For School Paper packs] the template made it easy to mix and match. The template includes three different styles [two of each]: Basic + basic with scalloped edges + top heavy with one end scalloped. If you're using digi paper you can use the full background sheet layer or you can disappear that layer and use the six small layers to mix and match. Hopefully that makes sense. Also, all of the layers are white so if you're printing the cut/fold lines onto your own patterned paper you don't need to do anything. Just print. The template is 8.5 x 11. Enjoy!
