Star Paper Lantern

Hello everyone!! I'm here to share a Star paper lantern that I made for Christmas. I'm a little late in posting it. In India it is a tradition to hang stars for Christmas. This is my first Christmas here in the US.

I was inspired by the Stars I saw in Debbie's blog. She has shared the SVG files for the basic star template in her blog for free.

Here is pic of the star with light at night.


I modified the SVG file to cut the triangle on each side. I have learnt a little bit on how to use the Cricut software. I used poster board for the frame and tissue paper for the triangular cut on each side.


I really love how it came out.


Hope you all had a good celebration for Christmas and wish you a very happy New Year :)
