Decor for vase or LED Candles

By Larissa Fyodorovna


“Hello creative G45ers! I have created a project for the hashtag #G45Technique. For it, I chose the Blossom 12×12 Patterns & Solids Pad.

In addition, I used the Tag, Pocket & Butterfly Dies set.

In the video tutorial you can use the step by step instructions to make your own decor for vase or LED candle shade.

Have fun with it!

Paper Vase Decor Tutorial by Larissa Fyodorovna 



  • To make it easier for an element of cardstock to take on a homogeneous cylindrical shape, it can be wrapped around a suitable shape (for example, a bottle) slightly moistened and left for a while.

  • Attach transparent or semi-transparent material (e.g. vellum, acetate foil) behind the cut-out butterflies and get an additional effect enhanced by a LED candle

  • Apply different media (colors, embossing powder, etc.) to the design paper elements to get individual effects” ~ Larissa
