I started off by cutting the luminary die out of printed paper and then took a Tim Holtz script stamp and distress ink and lightly stamped over the cut pieces. Next, I glued vellum to the openings of the lantern and stamped the acorn stamp (also from Tim Holtz) onto what would be the inside of the lantern. I then glued the lantern together (I found hot glue worked best.)
Next, I took the Tim Holtz Autumn Gatherings die and cut out the leaves and branches using different colors of cardstock and lightly sanded them and glued them to the 4 corners of the lantern. I then cut out an acorn from the Tin Holtz mini acorn and pumpkin die using grunge paper and inked it using distress inks. I added some Crackle Accents to the top of the acorn. The banner was cut using the Brenda Walton Shadow Box die and I stamped the saying using alphabet stamps.
Here is what the lantern looks like when it is lit up (sorry I am not the best at taking pictures.)
