CHINESE LANTERN NUMBER ONE

i had fun making this cute and fun
dimensional chinese lantern.

i want to make two more and i will post them as soon as i am done with them.

this is my first one.
i do not know what it says, i hope is not a bad word, lol
if you know the meaning, can you please tell me?
i found the lanterns in the cricut design space. the lanterns are digital images: no physical cartridge that i know of. i am sure you can also find them in the cricut craft room.

the completed project size is:
 5"tall and about 3-3/4"wide
the flowers i had made a while back an are from the flower shoppe cricut cartridge an the leaves are from a tim holtz decorative die: autumn gatherings

the lanterns and or the flowers are not hard to put together but it you take your time before gluing, the better.
hehe, experience speaking here.
the dry embossing was done with a darice folder: basket weave. i think is so pretty.

-below
is the pic of the hanging piece (grey/gray color) if you do hang them-
i made them a little too long, i know...so take that in account, :)

that grey/gray part goes inside the top opening. for a while i was trying to wrap it around it, lol. i even cut another piece thinking i had messed up the size, duh! then i realized what i was doing wrong.
ETA: 3/20/15--- the grey/gray part it is supposed to go on the outside and not in. i was looking at some other lanterns yesterday and realized this :( sorry.
-if i hang them outdoors, i will use twine/jute/ribbon instead. this i used here was a strip of cardstock-

cricut has many different lantern styles an they are all pretty.
hope you try them.

ok, fellows
this is it for now.
life is going faster than needed.

did i tell you son is graduating this may? i think i did and...
he is graduating with honors: cum laude
-we were just informed-

yay! we are so happy for him. he has been a great kid all his life.
not one headache or worry from him, ever.
he deserves this and more and i praise god for keeping him out of harm ways.

graduating with a major on computer sciences and a minor on graphic designs
from boston university it has not been easy but it has paid off.

mmm, i wonder if boston will still have snow on the ground when we get there in may. there is so much to melt, it has been a disaster for them this winter. so sad.
and the freezing cold, brrr!

anyway,
see you later
