Hello stampers, crafters, and friends today is the most romantic day of the year, and my project today will help add a little romance for your big evening.   My project today is a luminary created using the Bloomin’ Love Thinlits.   Here’s a look at today’s project.

I  just love this project.   It does take a little bit of time but it was well worth the effort to complete once I got it done, it was very very nice and so very pretty when it was complete.

Tips & Tricks:

To create the luminary I had to us a piece of 12 x 12 Real Red Cardstock.  I cut the cardstock in half and had to piecemeal it together to make it work.  I first scored each 6 x 12 piece at 3 3 3/4 on the long side and at 2″ on the short side.   This gave me three 3 3/4 x 4 squares with a 1/4″ over hang.   I cut off one of the square with the 1/4″ over hang off the second piece and attached it to the first using tear & tape.   This created a four panel measuring 6 x 16 1/4.   I added Tear & Tape to the 1/4″ over hang and started cutting the Sending Love Glassine Sheets to 5 7/8 x 12 with one being 5 7/8 x 5 7/8, this way I can sat it aside to work on the cut outs.


I laid the Bloomin’ Heart thinlit centered in each square and ran them through the big shot.  I cut them all out then added the glassine paper behind.  At this point I reattached the heart die cuts using the sponge and glue technique. I let everything dry and attached the box close.   I used fast fuse to close up the box, on the inside I added a 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 square of Real Red (cut from one of the extra pieces) on the inside to complete it, and finish off the inside.   Next I added my battery operated votive candle to the inside and this is the result.


It just gives the perfect little glow to my project today.  You could make a few of these and sit them around to add a very romantic feel to your plans tonight, or any romantic evening you have planned.
