Look at this!

Just wanted to share a pic of my latest creation! There had been some interest in some of the groups recently about paper lanterns. Well, I can't resist a 3D challenge, so I set about trying to figure out how to construct one. Once I figured out the basic geometry of it, my DH helped to create a spreadsheet that will allow me to set the desired diameter, the thickness of the star, the number of points, etc. I know, I know...he has always insisted that there is a reason to remember what they teach in high school geometry...well, I guess it's true!

Here's a pic (excuse the quality, it's taken from the cell phone...) I'll try to get some others later!

I created a template on my KNK for this one and added some swirly design elements. I haven't added lights to the inside yet...I have to find those old jack-o-lantern led lights (hmmmm, where are those in the basement???).

Ginormous sale!

So, I've got a lot to celebrate this weekend, and I'm giving you a chance to party with me! It's the two year anniversary of me joining Paperthreads as a designer and BOTH of my darling kiddos birthdays this weekend. I'm having a bash over at my section of the store this weekend.

Today (Friday), you can take buy any (or all!) of my files for 40% off. Don't have time to shop today? Not to worry, the deals don't end just yet...
