Hello 12 X 12 Cardstock Shop Fans! Design Team member Christi here from Scrapping for Tranquility.
I wanted to share another wonderful collaboration project with you that I did with Dreaming Tree. From the Unique Home Accents Collection, I made the Palace Lantern.This lantern holds a full size battery operated candle so you can actually light it up.
Dreaming Tree did their rendition in a very elegant way but I wanted to show you how versatile their files can be and how you can change the complete look just by switching papers.
When working with a Dreaming Tree file you might find that you do not have the exact patterned paper the designers used to make the original project, and that's ok. 12x12 Cardstock Shop has some great shopping filters set up that help you find just what you are looking for.
For instance, say I wanted to try and match the paper Dreaming Tree used on their lantern. The pattern is red and cream. If I head to 12x12 Cardstock Shop's home page, I can start my search by selecting "Patterned Paper" from the Shop By Cardstock Type section.
From there I can use the filters along the left side to narrow down my search. I might select "red" under the Color Tab, and "geometric" under Pattern. If I wanted a specific Season or Occassion, there is even a tab for that.
Using those filters, I quickly found two options that look very similar to the original...
For my project I knew I wanted to make mine completely different from the original and make it little boy themed, so I chose a camping theme instead of elegant. I made mine into a nightlight/camping version for my grandson, and it gives off just enough light for his bedroom.
