Way back in July I made a Card and some Luminaries for the Just Add Winter Challenge (JAI # 125). I had several people ask me about how I made them so I have put together this tutorial for you.
The steps I used to make these luminaries and my dimensions are as follows……
I started with 1 piece of Night of Navy card stock that makes the base of the luminary and a piece of Vellum that makes the sides.
My dimensions are as follows:
1 – 3“ x 3” . I scored this at ½” on each side.
1 – 4” x 8.5” – score this at 2”, 4”, 6” and 8”’s
Fold and crease your vellum along the score lines – so it makes the outside box shape. Run some sticky strip down the ½” section – this goes on what will be the outside of the luminary (but don’t stick it together yet).
Remove the sticky strip from the side of the vellum and stick the vellum wall together.
Your luminary is now complete and you can decorate it with ribbon (which also hides your sticky strip at the bottom and add a small embellishment if you wish.
I use the battery operated tea lights in mine – which are very safe.
