a Forest Friends Luminarie

Well I'll be splitting wood all day tommorrow so I'm going to post this tonight. I thought it might be cute to make a forest scene that you can put a little LED light behind. I tried to take a pick of the light glowing but it came out all blurry!

I hand drew the sun, tree, clouds and grass. I used ShortCuts full frosted sheet for the window. That way you can't see the candle hiding behind the scene.
And it wouldn't be complete without some cute forest creatures. Aren't these guys cute!!! They are the "Forest Friends" stamps from
I also used Spellbinders Labels to cut out the windows. Isn't that Label pretty??
If you want to see a tutorial on how I made this click here.
This Luminarie measures ( you start with a piece of cardstock 9"x12") fold in half so that it now measures
Each panel measures 4.5"x3"
