So, you want to make one of those great luminaries? Well, today is your lucky day! I made one of these luminaries for my Stampin' Up! workshop hostess today at her workshop. The project went over so well I thought I would come home and whip up another one.
Stampin' Up! Big Shot with Top Note Die (SU! exclusive)
1 piece of Basic Black 12 x 12 Cardstock
1 piece of 8 1/2 x 11 Vellum Cardstock
Spooky Things Decor Elements in Black (3 bats)
1/2 SU! Raven Lace
Paper Trimmer with Scoring Blade
Cut the Basic Black Cardstock in two 5 1/2 x 12 inch pieces. Fold in half. Place onto top note die approx 1/4 from edge of die. "Sandwich" up and run through the Big Shot.
Place tip of Top Note cut out even with the inside "rail" on your paper trimer (as in picture) and score. Do this for both ends of the cut out cardstock. After scoring trim "flap" to 1/4 of an inch.
Apply stick strip on the inside near the cutout in order to hold your vellum cardstock on. Layer Cardstock on AFTER applying your bats to the vellum, one side will be blank. 3 bats, 4 sides (sorry no picture for that step).
Apply sticky strip to the 1/4 inch lip on one of the sheets of black cardstock. Cut off the flaps on the other black cardstock piece.
Attach the two pieces together in order to make a square luminary.
Next, I took a very generous piece of Raven Lace and wrapped it around the luminary 3 times and tied off in the front in a knot.
That's it! Now, that wasn't so painful to do was it?!
