hi! i’m kim. I blog over at a girl and a glue
gun and i’m super excited to be here today! I’m letting the
glue gun cool and making these paper lanterns…
all you need is a sheet of black posterboard and some tissue paper.
and some tape…
and a pair of scissors..
and your time.
oh. and a ruler.
but the only thing you need to buy is the posterboard and tissue paper.
I actually bought the posterboard to make a witch silhouette for my
window…but decided to make these instead….
i took the length of the posterboard and divided it by 4….(squint
and you can see the lines?)
and then i added a frame around each one….
then i doodled and came up with some halloweeny things and cut them out.
(you want to make sure that parts of it attaches to the border and
don’t accidentally cut it or you are going to be doing a lot of tape
i took the ruler and a pen and scored down the middle to make the fold
nice and crisp
then i got this 30..oh wait..BONUS 40 sheet gift tissue
assortment from the dollar store.
i just cut a piece to size and taped it to the back…(or inside)
and put one over my scentsy…..
and one over some orange lights…
they make a perfect party centerpiece…
Those are adorable Kim!
Thanks for sharing!
