VSN Challenge

I hopped on over to SCS yesterday and decided to pick out a challenge to do.  The inspiration was "Light up your Life"and we were to make a luminary.

I used a Tim Holtz A2 die with windows, and some turquoise cs.  I ran two pieces through the Vagabond, and then turn the CS around and ran it through again.  This way I die cut two windows on each piece of cs.  I then stamped the little star from Melanie's "Candles on your Cake" stamp set onto pieces of vellum and attached them to the inside of my luminary. After that I scored lines to create the box and glued the flaps together.

This was really fun to make and I plan on making a few more, but will decorate them a little more on the outside.  Maybe triangle to look like a roof, and hmm... ideas are freely flowing now.  You'll have to see what I come up with. OH, now I need to pick up some of those battery operated tea lights.
Thanks for stopping by!

This is great Karen. I have been thinking about getting that window die. This is a great use for it.
