           This tutorial is used for multiple designs. Your file may contain different design pieces.

1.Cut design pieces. ( I used double sided card stock and vellum paper)
2. Flip the Lantern base over. Fold all score lines. 
3. Line up the two lantern window pieces. Apply glue to the long side tab of the lantern (on the backside) and secure to the other lantern window base piece (on top).
4. Additional image of lantern base pieces glued together.
5. Glue the vellum paper to the window panels; centering around each of the cut out sections.
6. Apply glue to the other long side tab of the lantern window base and secure to the inside of the other lantern window base piece; creating a box.
7. Apply glue to one top tab and secure the top tab to the inside of the next angled triangle.
8. Repeat for the rest of the top tabs until fully enclosed. Apply glue to the inside of one of the circular hanger pieces. Align with the other circular hanger piece and secure.

 9. Apply glue to the top two tabs of the Lantern square base and secure to the inside of the sides. 
10. Repeat for the two bottom tabs creating a shallow box.
11. Apply a dab of glue to the inside of the lantern tea light base just under the slot. (This will help to secure the tab when it passes through.)
12.  Tuck the end tab into the slot creating a circular tube shape.
13. Secure until dry.
14. Place the square piece over the tube shape you just created.
15. Apply glue to the outside of the tabs on the square side and secure downward to the square piece.
16. Place the narrow circular ring piece over the tube shape you just created. Flip this piece over so the circular side is up. Apply glue to the outside of the tabs on the circular side and secure downward to the circular piece. Apply glue to the tops of the ring and tabs and secure the thicker circular ring to the top.

17. Place a flameless tea light candle inside the lantern square base; centering it. Apply glue to the bottom of the square side of the combined 
lantern tea light base. Place inside the lantern square base and secure.
18. Using pieces of foam adhesive squares, attach the skulls to the coordinating shapes on the outside of the lantern base; centering them. (If using the spider lantern design: Curve the spider legs and I used a black marker to color the foam adhesive squares to hide them. I also attached an adhesive jewel on the spider's backside for a bit of sparkle:)
19.  Apply glue to the bottom outside edges of this piece and place inside the tea light base box. Secure until dry. I finished this lantern with a ribbon:)
