MHK Designs Halloween Lanterns

     If you're looking for something simple to make for Halloween here's an idea for you. All you need for this is a battery tea light, some double sided tape, a pair of scissors and MHK Designs Trick or Treat paper set.    
     The papers were printed on to thin card, to find out how much you need wrap it around the tea light and allow an overlap for sticking together. Fold your card in half so the fold runs around the light, then cut at regular intervals to around an inch from the edge.
     Put double sided tape around your tea light and along one side of your paper. Wrap the paper around the light and stick, then stick the edges together to form a cylinder, squash down slightly to open up the slits.
     Add a small strip of card for the handle at the top and the side decoration. These little pumpkins are die cut after printing images from Flight By Night and Spooky, you don't have to have a die cut machine as you could draw around a cookie cutter and cut out.
     This would be a great project to make with young children ready for Halloween and with battery tea lights it's perfectly safe too.
