Final Doodle Pantry DT Post

It's a sad day for me. This is my final post as a Doodle Pantry Design Team Member.  Things are just a bit crazy right now for me and Laurie gave all of us the option of staying on for another term or "retiring."  Since I wasn't sure I'd be able to fulfill my responsibilities as I'd like, I decided to step down.

But, since you know how much I love Doodle Pantry digital images, this won't be my last project using Doodle Pantry papers or images.

I used flowers from the Joyful Day set.  Printed on vellum, it allows the image and votive light to shine through the lantern.

The shimmery pink cardstock is 12" x 6" ~ I went with 6" tall so it would fit through my die cutting machine.  Each side is scored at 2-7/8" so I had a "tab" at the end.

Score tape all around the openings makes for easy placement of the vellum pieces.

I didn't want the votive to be seen through the "legs" so I created a "ledge" and everything lined up on my first try.  That does not happen very often ... believe me !

I glued (taped) 3 sides before sealing the side of the lantern and the final side of the ledge

Using Doodle Pantry pre-colored images allowed me to finish this project in under 2 hours from start to finish. 

I thought about embellishing the sides and decided to keep the lantern plain and simple. This way the beauty of the digital image shines through ~ pun intended {smile}
