This thing is BIG! lol. Over 15 inches long. It was so much fun to make this giant paper lantern. The template is originally from Martha Stewart (for Halloween.)
It's for Cuttlebug Challenge Blog's festival of Lights. At first I wasn't sure how I was going to cover something so huge in embossed paper, but it ended up being a mosaic technique that was lots of fun--like a paper crafty jig saw puzzle.
If you're curious, You can find the template & a full pictorial of how to make it on the Cuttlebug Challenge blog here:
