  1. Cut and assemble the card.
  2. Attach the decorative piece to the top of the card with pop dots.
  3. Glue the 3 roses first (1 Large – 2 Small). Glue and tuck the other embellishments as shown in the photo.


  1. Assemble the base from Clara's Christmas Kit. Use the antique linen Distress Ink on all of the edges.
  2. Cut all of the lantern pieces and vellum.
  3. To attach the vellum I went around the outside edges of the vellum pieces with the Elmer's Dot Runner. This prevents curling (which the wet glue causes).
  4. Attach vellum first then assemble the rest of the lantern.
  5. Use the Elmer's Dot Runner and glue the swirly branch to the vellum on the front of the lantern. Again, using the dot glue will prevent any wrinkling and the finish looks so good.
  6. Cut 1 large and one small swirly branch, 3 roses, 2 sets of leave,s and the 3D Sakura flowers; 2 large, and one small. Assemble the flowers and attach as shown in the photo. Glue the leaves and swirly branches behind the flowers.
  7. Attach the lantern to the base.

Design Tips

Kathy Helton - SVGCuts Designer

  • When using the leaves, I cut several extras in different colors and sometimes pull them apart and only use the one leaf. Also you can adjust the height to give it a more natural look.
  • I have seen some beautiful colored vellum. This would be a great project to use it!
  • I use the roses from the Lunch With Mom SVG Kit tag in a lot of my designs. I use a quilling tool to "roll" the roses. Makes it so much easier.

This lantern could be used for any season or occasion. I love to keep a lantern in my kitchen and burn it at night. It is so beautiful and is a great accent piece. Hope you make one and share on the SVG Cuts Facebook!
