Hello, G45ers!

  We are excited to bring you another #ClubG45LeveledUp project.  Today, Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Boule de Scrap has taken our Christmas Lantern tutorial and magically turned it into a whimsical Fairy Lantern Box with Mini Album.  Below you will find step by step instructions on how to create your own Lantern out of a G45 Box using our Fairie WingsWe hope this encourages you to try out one of our project sheets and make it your own with the products you have at home.  


Lantern Box Tutorial & Album

By Boule de Scrap


“When I discovered the sublime Fairie Wings collection for the first time, I was immediately inspired to create a fairy house or a box that could contain all the magic that this collection of papers inspires in us. I kept this idea in a small corner in my mind, until the day when I was invited to take over a project of the Club G45, and there, I immediately thought of mixing the wonderful projects of Annette Green, and my idea. Its tutorial being so simple and fantastic, I took it almost identically, I just changed the dimensions, added some decorative details, and changed the mini-album, because I needed an album that could contain about thirty photos.


I am therefore delighted today to present you my version, a magic lantern for fairies.

Fairy Lantern Box Tutorial


  1. The first step will be to cover our box with papers.

To add a vintage touch, I inked all the edges of my papers before gluing them





Papers Inside:

2: 5.5 cm x 13.2 cm 

1.96 inch x 5.12 inch

2: 5.5 cm x 11 cm 

1.96 inch x 4.33 inch


Papers Outside:


Front : 13.5 cm x 11 cm

4.33 inch x 5.12 inch

Back: 13.5 cm x 11.5 cm

4.33 inch x 5.12 inch


The sides: 13.5 cm x 6 cm

4.33 inch x 2.36 inch




  1. The second step will be to create a decoration on the front of our box. We will create a curtain on our window.


Create a Frame: 

11 cm x 8.5 cm

4.33 inch × 3.15 inch 


With a Window:

9 cm x 6.4 cm 

3.54 inch x 2.36 inch









This curtain brings a romantic, and oriental spirit to our lantern.




We are now going to create the top of the lantern, in the same way as the tutorial of Annette Green.

I just made a modification to facilitate the gluing and for more strength.

Lantern Top:

12 cm x 6.5 cm

11 cm x 5.5 cm 

10 cm x 4.5 cm


4 72 inch x 2.36 inch

4.33 inch x 1.96 inch

3.93 inch x 1.57 inch 


To these dimensions are added 1 cm on each side to create the edges allowing us the gluing




To consolidate, I just added a cardboard rectangle below each construction.


I created a cardboard support to stick my 3 floors just created

13 cm x 7.5 cm

5.12 inc x 2.75 inch 





We come to stick our 3 floors




We will create a handle for our box

Box Handle:

30 cm x 1.5 cm

11.80 inch x 0.39 inch




We just stick our assembly on the top of our box
