Tip: Fussy cut twice the same design and glue both overlapping so you get some volume, as I did with bells and some flowers.

Tip: Add moss, pine cone or red fruits and integrate them with paper decoration.

Clare shares a gorgeous handmade lantern using St. Nicholas!

St Nicholas Lantern 1 Clare Charvill Graphic 45

"I'm loving the traditional colours in this years Christmas collection. They're just perfect to create festive home decor pieces for your home.  This was a fun piece to create.  I took one of my lantern kits and a selection of papers from the St Nicholas collection and spent a fun afternoon bringing the lantern to life. The pretty floral borders on the North Pole paper were the perfect width for the stand and  once that was decorated I matched the colours by using plainer papers from the collection to alter the other parts of the lantern to create this festive focal point for my mother in laws mantle piece.  I've gone for a less is more look this year to show case the papers and just a few fussy cut sprays of flowers from the Bells and Bows 12 x 12 paper, a spotty band around the LED tea light and the border strip around the top of the lantern lid to tie it in with the stand. Here's the supply list if you'd like to make one yourself." ~Clare
