Simple and Elegant Paper Lanterns

Hi friends, 

I would like to share a couple of easy paper lantern ideas. Those are so easy to create and make such great impact when used as party or seasonal decorations. 

I also have a little announcement to make. I am off to the UK to present the NEW PAPER DISCOVERY COLLECTION. Please watch me on CraftStash FB page on Friday 24 Jan at 1 p.m. UK time. I will also be on Hochanda! I will let you know the dates and times a bit later on my FB Page (Olga Direktorenko Paper Arts) as well as on my Pinterest (@olgadirektorenko).

Thank you so much for visiting! Now to the projects!

Cinderella's Carriage - 3D Card

Hi friends! 

The project I am presenting today is very special for me because although it is made totally with Paper Discovery dies it was still inspired by another crafter. I am talking about Sam from Mixed Up Crafts who made these beautiful pop-up clock cards . 

As I was watching her tutorial I thought that those clocks distantly reminded me of fancy carriages and were just missing the wheels. So I thought I would take the pop-up card idea to create a Cinderella's carriage.

Here is what I came up with!

Circle Plate Handmade Card

Happy New Year everyone!!! Thanks for stopping by today!

I am finally back to crafting after winter holidays and the project I am presenting today is a combination of die cutting and layered stamping. It also was published in Die-Cutting Essentials magazine (issue 56).

This card with die cut lacy border and vintage stamps looks a lot like a ceramic plate. Please find full instructions in the video below!
