CRAFT Challenge #77

It's Thursday again, and that means it's time for another C.R.A.F.T Challenge

Please join us for C.R.A.F.T Challenge #77:  Use Vellum on your card or project.  Layer it, emboss it....time to get creative with Vellum!

Our fabulous prize is provided by
Prize for the winner is their choice of 5 stamps from the shop.
Here is my vellum creation.......
A Christmas Luminaria
For easier access to the votive, I made a door on hinges. 

I really love these lanterns, and have made several of them for various occasions other than just Christmas.  This lantern based on a Lantern Gift Box which I found HERE

Basically, I followed the template, except that I attached the roof to the lantern base (it's glued, so the roof top does not open.)  Then to access the votive, I made a door which is attached by small hinges.
