For my project I tried something new for me. I picked out a 3D lantern from Silhouette and filled each window with a Halloween scene, including of course a couple owls! This was a really fun project and I'm pretty happy with the results, so success, lol! And what could be better than this: when my son saw this he said "That has to be the coolest thing you've ever made! It's Beast!". Accolades like that from a 10 year old...who could ask for anything more, lol! I hope you enjoy it too:

Recollections Paper
Silhouette Cutting Files
Tissue Paper
Chalks and Inks
Martha Stewart Ribbon
I hope we've inspired you in someway today! Have a Happy Owl-A-Ween!! Now you're off to the very talented Vanessa!

    1. Thank you Jenny! The lantern shape is called Basic Lantern in the Silhouette store. The black parts are also Sil. files that I re-sized to work in the openings. I glued them onto regular tissue paper then adhered the tissue paper onto the inside of the lantern. Glad you liked it, hope you have fun making your own.
