Vellum Lantern and orange juice

Diane from Capadia Designs gave me the idea to drink a lot of orange juice! Actually she meant the lid from Tropicana orange juice makes a great holder for a lantern.  I spray painted the lid gold, added some bling and little homemake roses and leaves and wa-la a beatuful vase for my lantern. I took a piece of vellum and ran it through the Big Shot using the Petals-A-Plenty folder from Stampin Up.  Next I cut the top with a scallop punch and rolled it into a tube amd glued it together. I dabbed a glitter pen in the center of each flower to add some pazazz!  Next I made a box with Tami's inststructions and decorated it with Stampin Up paper and ribbon.

Glitter Ornament and a pretty Box

Diane from Capadia Designs has a link on her blog to Everyday Cricut showing how to make beautiful Christmas ornaments starting with Pledge Floor cleaner.  The Pledge is hard to find, but I asked Wal Mart to let me know when they got some in which they did.  It was under $6 for a large bottle.  I checked out Tami's blog and she had very easy instructions to make a box.  I decorated it in beautiful Stampin Up Christmas paper and have been giving the two as gifts.
