Shine Light on Your Party with DIY Vellum Lanterns

1. Cut vellum to size. Use the Fiskars® ProCision™ Rotary Bypass Trimmer to cut vellum to desired size so that it can be wrapped tightly around a straight-sided vase.

2. Punch quatrefoil shapes. Use the Fiskars® Quatrefoil Intricate Shape Punch to cut multiple shapes from the gold cardstock.

3. Adhere shapes to vellum. Adhere the quatrefoil shapes to the vellum with adhesive – we used glue for a clean and polished pattern. For a cohesive look, create a purposeful pattern with the shapes. Allow the adhesive to dry fully.
