Valentine... You LIGHT Up My Life!!!

OK... So I was in the big box craft store and I noticed in the $1 section this darling lantern.I thought about all of the teacher gifties that I need to make for my daughters teachers for Valentine's Day and decided to dress it up. Let me tell you... it got a WHOLE lot cuter with the addition of this awesome DRS DESIGNS easy background stamp. And the best part??? This took like 20 minutes START TO FINISH to make!!! Here is what I did...
I stamped and embossed the heart background stamp on the vellum card stock and used light pink embossing powder. White would be pretty too. Then I cut the vellum to size and added it OVER the glass panels that were already in this little lantern. Then I used Scor-tape around the top and the bottom to add the ribbon. I got out my super handy BOW EASY gadget and tied this perfect multi-loop bow and adhered it with a glue dot. I tied all kinds of ribbon on the handle and I put a battery operated tea light in the bottom of the lantern. (safety first!) and here is my project. Super quick and EASY and a great way to let someone know that they light up YOUR life! Thanks for stopping by...

what a cute, fun idea, Dawn! Love all the ribbon fluff on the top and the velum will look great when your tea light is on.
