Anyways, you know the drill, here's a million pictures coming at ya! :-)
The sun has a huge significance in the movie and it just happens to look awesome on a lantern!!
Side 2 is Rapunzel's tower with a glowing window, and Rapunzel's magic golden hair all glowing.
Side 3- Rapunzel in the boat with Flynn (not pictured) looking at all the floating lanterns around them. And yes, her hair is braided just like in the movie!
Side 4-Rapunzel on the tree tops staring at the "floating lights" far away.
I tell ya, I used a TON of twine on this lantern!! Lol! But it just looks so cute as her hair!! I got my twine from The Twinery. They were the ones with the best selection of colors, and I needed a sunshine yellow!
I braided some sheer wired ribbon for the handle and tied a bow around the top so it wouldn't look so bare up there.
Now the best ones....... Lights off!
Here's my inspiration pictures I found online......
Now for the details. I used soooooo many sets from SVG Attic to make this lantern!
I used Cape Cod for:
-the "tower" (which is the lighthouse svg)
-the grassy hill (supposed to be the sandbar)
-the sailboat (which I modified and added a swirl to)
Just Beachy for:
Luau set for:
-the grass skirt (welded to the lighthouse for a "thatched roof" look)
-obviously the lantern
-the bushes (at the base of the tower)
-the bricks for the chimney (modified to fit the shape of the lighthouse)
Give a Hoot Set:
-vines for side of tower
-long branch with swirl on it (modified and welded to the boat)
Just so you know, I use Make The Cut with my Cricut Expression to cut out my SVG files. I absolutely cannot live without MTC!! Because of that program I am able to manipulate and change different svg files to make them suit my needs. For instance, the bricks on the side of the tower, are really from the chimney bricks in the house lantern file, and I was able to crop them into the right shape to cut out of one the tower layers.
I am thinking of doing a video tutorial on some of these MTC tricks that I know. Is that something anyone might be interested in seeing??
Another useful tool in Make The Cut, is the rhinestone feature. A couple weeks ago I was hearing about a fun tool called the Sew Easy, which basically just punches stitching holes into your paper in certain designs. Someone mentioned that they thought it would be neat if someone made a tool that would cut the stitching holes in a variety of shapes.
Well, MTC already does!! It's called the Rhinestone tool. If you have MTC, try it!!! That is how I made the holes around the sun on my lantern! You could totally use it for threading twine or embroidery floss through in any shapes!!! How cute would a rainbow card that way be?!!!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like my Tangled Lantern, and if you are one of the few people who has not seen this movie, seriously, go do it now! :-)
