Instructions: Size: 5" X 5" X 7"  Cut two pieces of dark blue cardstock 6" x 10 1/2".  Score at 1/2" and 5 1/2" on the long side for both pieces. The 1/2" is a tab for gluing both pieces together but do not glue together until after cutting ovals (I actually waited until I was finished decorating each side).  

Cut an oval out of each side (X 4). Cut designer paper to fit each side and cut a scalloped oval from the center of each piece and then glue paper to each panel (4). Punch small stars between oval opening and scalloped oval paper then cover back of each panel with vellum. Add along with the stars with white paint, a small stylist making small white dots. 

Die cut 4 grass borders using punch and glue to the bottom of each panel. Die cut dark blue Delicate Borders for the top of each panel and glue in place. 

Stamp 3 full sets of Classic Sunflowers, using Tuxedo black ink on white cardstock. Die cut and sponge color (I used Yellow, Peanuts Brittle and Potter's Clay Memento ink). Form flowers using the deluxe flower shaping kit and glue together then fill centers with Express-O Prills.  

Stamp small flowers from Birds and Blooms using Tuxedo Black ink onto white cardstock. Die cut with coordinating dies and color with Memento Yellow and Potter's Clay ink. Form using the deluxe flower shaping kit and glue together. 

Stamp bears, 3 campfires, Treehouse, 2 small sunflower plants and 4 Sunflower/acorn borders using Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and die cut with coordinating dies. Color (with Copic Markers) and shape with the flower shaping kit.

Die cut 3 or 4 flourishe die from Cut Mat Create collections from green cardstock and cut as needed for it to fit under formed sunflowers. 

Decorate each side of the luminary with the campfires (except house side) and then bears (only one side has 2 bears). One the house side, add the 2 sunflower plants and moon (1" circle punch from white cardstock).  Add the sunflower/acorn border to the top of each side.  Now fill in corners with green flourishes, flowers and small bits of burlap.  

Use Score tape or glue to attach panels together at 1/2" tabs.  Use a small battery operated tea light to light up luminary.
