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.
