Cut out 4 construction strips of 1 x 9 1/2" and fold them in half. Put tape on one back of construction strip both sides of the fold. Now you can connect all the sides with the construction strips. Don’t close the lantern when it is flat, it works easier to have it shaped when adding the last construction strip. Now paint the whole lantern on the inside and outside with Gesso, let it dry. Glue your patterned paper on the front of each panel, cut out the middle but leave an 1/2 inch strip on each side so you can fold it to the inside to cover the edge.

Now you can die cut them using the coordinating dies, and shape them with the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Assemble using dries clear glue adding stamen in the center. Arrange flowers and Holly as shown and adhere using hot glue.

Make 4 holes on top of each panel and put a ribbon through it. I put a bead on the outside so that the ribbon doesn’t slide through the hole. Now on top you put all the ribbon through a silver ring so that you can hang it. Finally I glued a plastic diamond under the lantern using hot glue.
