Spooooooky Luminaries

I have had fun using vellum in the Spider Web Embossing folder.  It is perfect for making luminaries.  I used the Fancy Favors box and Basic Black Cardstock to make both of these luminaries but I cut the box in half and inserted a 4" strip of vellum that I had embossed.  2 strips of Pumpkin Pie cardstock punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch are used to cover up the seam.  I could have added other embellishments but I really like it the way it is.  Of course, since the luminaries are made of paper I used the little battery operated candles.  I found 2-packs at the Dollar Tree so they aren't expensive at all.
The second Luminary is made with the 2 1/2 inch circle punched in the front and a square of vellum that was embossed with the Spider Web Embossing Folder placed behind the circle.  I used some of the gorgeous Chunky Glitter around the hole and added a Glimmer Brad to hold the ends of the pleated Pear Pizzaz 1/2" Stitched Poly Ribbon.  I gathered a piece of the fun new Waffle Paper to put around the top of the box.  I really love working with the Waffle Paper, it pleats and gathers so nicely and gives your projects the bling we love this time of year.  I know you will be seeing lots of it in the next couple of months!
The spider is from a package of glow in the dark plastic spiders I bought at the $$ store too.  Well, only a few days till Halloween and they will be a busy few days.  I may not get many more Halloween projects posted this year.  I enjoy the fun decorations and costumes but I think I'm ready to move on to Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Very Cool! Can you tell me if you are using Vellum Cardstock or Vellum paper?

Thank you for sharing!

I used vellum paper in the luminaries. I used the platform with no layers too because it cuts the vellum in places if you run it too tight.

Very cute luminaries! I love the idea of using the favor box, and how you cut it in half to make it larger as well! Adorable!
