Multi purpose Lantern!

Hello friends...today's project is inspired by the oncoming festival, Diwali. I have made this multi purpose Lantern using some empty foam tape rolls and acetate sheets that comes with the packaging! Multi purpose cos it serves as a goodie box, tealight holder and the lid can be converted to a wall hanging! so 3 looks from 1 product!!!
 Here it is....
I have used black handmade paper with some gold embossing pattern on it to cover the rolls. The acetate sheet has been textured with the basket weave embossing folder and have stained it with glass colors(the photograph has not captured it) .
The rim of the acetate has the scallop border punch lace  on CS and laced with some glitter dust.
The lid of the lantern is the most interesting with loads of elements.
TH weathered clock with gold embossing and some hand made and distressed flowers using cheery Lynn and Joy crafts die and some leaves form the decorative element around the golden idol of Goddess Lakshki(goddess of wealth).




I have heat embossed the sentiment in black and tucked that too! Some golden beads to decorete the base of the lantern and a tealight inside with its cover completes the look!
This is going to my friend loaded with some homemade chocolates too...


Happy Diwali to all of you.
