Patriotic holidays are coming, Memorial Day in May, Presidents Day and Flag Day in June and I'm ready to party with the 3D Rocket Lantern from Dreaming Tree. You can see their video, get files and tutorials through their site by clicking HERE
- White Vellum from Stampin' Up!
- Gold Foil from Stampin' Up!

- Gold Glimmer card stock from Stampin' Up!
- Aleene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue
- Silhouette Cameo
- Tea Light
All of Dreaming Tree's files are easy to use. I preview the video once to get a sense of the sequence and then it is easy to put together. I usually make mulitiples because I use these for centerpieces. This time I made 8. I didn't use the pipe cleaners like they did in the video I thought they looked cheesy so I just covered the holes that were created when I cut them out with the stars I saved from the accent pieces.
These are really cool looking and with the tea light inside it makes a perfect centerpiece or snack table accent. I cut some gold tone "doilies" to place them on. I used the Starblast Framelit from Stampin' Up! By bringing it into my Silhouette I could set it up so that it would work on a round doilie shape. Then they pop up and give an even more exciting look to the lanterns.
Pretty cool huh?! Well, I thought so,
