Lantern Shadow Box Tutorial


Hello, G45ers!

  It is a beautiful day to pull out your fine-tipped scissors and create a festive shadow box using fussy cut papers.  Today on the blog Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Lena Astafeva has taken our #ClubG45LeveledUp challenge and created her own leveled up version of our DIY Lantern Box using some G45 Christmas papers, but you can use any that you have in your stash.  


Lantern Box – #ClubG45LeveledUp

By Lena Astafeva


“I’m inspired by a lantern, by wonderful Master class of the Club G45 DIY Lantern by Annette Green. I’ve changed it a little, I made extra covers, which can be removed, and all decoration can be put into the box after the celebration. An electric candle or a little garland can be put inside the lantern. Enjoy your creations!






Now we create covers for the lantern



create another one of the same





We decorate the lantern with cut-out pictures.” ~Lena
