A request led to creating a simple paper lantern but then it led to offering a couple of additional ideas and options. By extending the top it allows a place to add a phrase, saying or name(s).
I've lined the one on the left which is very pretty too...also a great opportunity for your double-sided paper.
I'm also including a scut file that has the smaller version that is perfect for a battery operated tea light. Charming and fun...what a cute way to create table markers with individual names, too! Or give a personalized gift. The Stencil or Steamer font is ideal. If you don't want to crease it, you can gently push the ends together to create a softer rounded effect.
The zip file has several files including some scut files. I've created an optional scalloped top and have a file with the word Welcome included. All were done in Scal 1 so it should be compatible with both versions. File link here!
