YOU WILL NEED:
Lantern-style paper light, 30cm
Card: black, white
Dies: flowers, bows
1. Die cut numerous flowers and 15 bows from both black and white and pink newsprint. Cut some large flowers from black card.
2. Assemble 15 paper blooms by layering a black flower, large newspaper flower and smaller pink one. Attach a gem to the centre of each.
3. Position the 15 bows in groups of threes, using glue dots to fix them. Punctuate each trio of bows with a group of paper flowers. Add black gems to the centre of each bow.
Note: do not leave the decorated lampshade unattended. Use a low watt bulb that sits in the centre of the paper lantern and does not touch the sides
