let your light shine...@ the wholesaler.

6:52:00 AM

remember those chines lantern style lights that were so popular way back when...well i think they are making a come back - even if only in the crafting world. i decorated this light using a range of flowers and some elements mad using the beautiful Pretty in pink range by Glitz. I so love this range. i had 2 curved rows going down the front and back of the light using a selection of the pretties collected.
i used a four piece die set from Cuttlebug to cut the leaves. I sewed 2 leaves together folding the top one upwards for dimension. I did the same with some of the butterflies.
to alternate the butterflies i hand sewed some pearls to the centers of the butterflies. with the paper scraps left over i punched some smaller flowers and added diamante or pearls to the centers.
vintage pearls....
after sewing i left long strands of thread hanging from the leaves and butterflies - i loved the messy look they bring to this project.
i am still trying to get the actual light hanging with a bulb inside LOL - and will then post a pic.
