The dark nights are creeping up on us and so it’s at this time of year that I like to pull out my paper lanterns and brighten the atmosphere in my home. Our latest paper cut lantern pattern is perfect for those makers with a cutting machine. It is delicate and is full of intricate leaf patterns that a cutting machine can achieve easily. Of course you can use the PDF pattern to cut this lantern by hand if you want to. But with a cutting machine you can click on the SVG file below and have it cut and ready to assemble in minutes.
We used a shimmering metallic paper for our paper cut lanterns, with a vellum paper window and battery operated LED lights inside. Assembling this pattern with a low temperature glue gun is the quickest and easiest way to put it together, but if you don’t have one, then a good paper glue is fine too – you can shop this post below if you want to get yourself a glue gun, I couldn’t do what I do without mine! However you choose to make this pretty paper cut lantern, have fun!
