Rustic Lantern | Sneak Peek and Materials List

Pin It
rustic-lantern-peek-01 I'm so excited to show you a sneak peek of my latest project - the Rustic Lantern! rustic-lantern-peek-02 To make it, I used three sheets of 12x12" chocolate brown shimmer card stock paper (Recollections brand) and one piece of plain vellum (about 10 x 5"). rustic-lantern-materials-01 I also accented it with some 20 gauge antique-brass-colored wire by Beadalon. rustic-lantern-materials-02 The top slides on like a lid, and it's illuminated from within by this five-inch electric candle lamp. rustic-lantern-materials-03 Click here to see the Five-Inch Rustic Country Candle Lamp by Creative Hobbies on Amazon. rustic-lantern-peek-03 The finished lantern stands about seven inches tall.


  • Three sheets of 12 x 12" brown card stock paper (about 80 lb. is best) - I used shimmer paper by Recollections (Michaels)
  • One 10 x 5" piece of plain vellum
  • About 22" of 20 gauge matching wire, such as Antique Brass by Beadalon (actual gauge not very important)
  • Five-Inch Rustic Candle Lamp by Creative Hobbies on Amazon (see it on Amazon here)
To make this project, just like all of the others on our website, you'll need a personal electronic cutting machine and software that allows you to cut SVG files, such as: Can't wait to show you the other coordinating projects that I'm working on! ~Mary :) P.S. The patterned paper that I'm using for some OTHER new projects is the Cowboy Country paper collection by Carta Bella (designed by Steven Duncan). LOVE it! rustic-lantern-materials-04 I have a set of all of the 12x12" sheets to give away, so stay tuned to the SVGCuts Facebook Page for your chance to win!
