Rose Tea Light Lantern (Flameless)

Rose Tea Light Lantern (Flameless)-JMRush
Approximate Dimensions: W 5” x D 5” X H 2.5”

This design is compatible with both 8X12 and 12X12 mats and when vellum paper is used, an opaque lantern effect is created.
You can purchase this design here: https://www.silhouettedesignstore.com/artists/485222

  1. Cut design pieces. (I used double sided card stock and vellum paper) Be careful removing the pieces from the mat. On the vellum flower petals I released the petals first and then the centers and on the card stock outline petals, I removed the negative inside petal shapes and then released each petal one at a time until all of the flower shape could be lifted:)
  2. Glue each outline flower piece to the coordinating flower petal base. Glue each outlined leaf to the solid leaf base. Press to secure the pieces together.
  3. Image of the combined rose petal.
  4. Fold the tabs of the flower lantern base.
  5. Apply a dab of glue to the inside of the lantern base just under the slot. (This will help to secure the tab when it passes through.)
  6. Tuck the end tab into the slot creating a circular tube shape.
  7. Place the one of the narrow circular ring pieces over the tube shape you just created. 
  8. Apply glue to the outside of one of the rows of tabs and secure to the narrow ring.
  9. Apply glue to the tops of the ring and tabs. 
  10. Secure the thicker circular ring to the top.
  11. Fit the second narrow ring around the other side of the tube. Apply glue to the outside of the tabs and secure to the narrow ring.
  12. Place a flameless votive candle inside the tube. 
  13. Apply glue to the tops of the ring and tabs. 
  14. Secure the thicker circular ring to the top. Fold the tabs in the center of the two largest combined flowers. The larger bottom set is folded up and the other down.
  15. Apply glue to the outside of one set of tabs and secure to the other set.
  16. Image of the tabs glued together. 
  17. While the two large flowers dry; curve the three loose combined flower petals and two combined leaves as you like. I rolled the petals up on the largest flower. The two smallest flowers I flipped over ( pretty side down) and then rolled the petals up. This section was really curved so I wanted the outline to show.
  18. Apply glue to the top ring of the lantern base.
  19. Secure the leaves on the lantern base.
  20. Apply glue to the lantern base over the top of the leaves that you just placed.
  21. Center and secure the combined large flowers to the lantern base. Apply glue to the bottom ring of the smallest combined flower and attach it to the inside of the second smallest combined flower. - Centering it and alternating the petals.
  22. Apply glue to the center of the next largest combined flower. Center and attach the double small combined flowers staggering the petals.
  23. Curve the flower petals of the double combined flowers on the lantern base. Apply glue to the center ring of the double combined lantern base flowers. Center and secure the small combined flower set- staggering the petal pattern. :)

    1. So sorry for your trouble. I would contact the Silhouette store as I have not had any other customers with any problems. Please let me know if you do not get the issue resolved.
      Thank you,

  2. I love how pretty this rose is. I had some difficulty figuring out the tabs on the large petals but it came together. I hope to make them for table settings for a party.

    1. Hi Nancy:)
      So glad you like it and glad you were able to figure out the tutorial. Writing tutorials is not a strength of mine... I'd much rather be designing;) Thanks for taking the time to write in.
      Thank you!
