Don't you just love them!!! I do. I found this fabulous cardstock that already had heat embossing Christmas designs so I decided to make these luminaries. They are about 5 - 6" tall but you can make them smaller or larger if you wish. I had some vellum that I recently got for a great price and attached the pieces using Scor tape. I tried using Scotch Quick Dry glue but it didn't work very well and you could see every glob. I used some small battery operated tea lights to light up the project. Because you can see everything when looking in from the top, I cut some small pieces of glittered garland and stuffed some into the tops of each one to hide the inner workings. To finish off, I cut some snowflakes using my Martha Stewart punch - it does such a great job!. I just love the way they turned out. I am giving them to a friend for her Christmas dinner table.

If you want to know how to make lumunaries, I found a tutorial on the Splitcoaststampers website. They were pretty easy to make. Good luck with your own projects.


  1. Barb, These are BEAUTIFUL!! Happy New Year!!

  2. Barb, these are great!!! In my old neighborhood we would all put out luminaries along the curb on Christmas Eve (using real candles). The paper you used is fantastic, love the embossing and the snowflakes! Bet your friend loved them!!

    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving that nice comment about my quilt. I'd love to see the ones you made...hope you'll post them.
