Do you love the soft glow of a night light?
For the past few months I have been thinking about ways to make the night light a functional piece of art that glows.
Here are the first group of designs I want to share with you. Besides the pretty floral patterns, we also have a pine cone design that would be great for those who love a woodland theme!
Important: always keep paper at a safe distance to anything that generates heat, and use LED night-lights only.
Remember these DIY dimensional paper flower lanterns?
These lanterns are free standing while the night light we are making today is a like wall sconce.
Materials and tools:
- LED plug-in light, which generates much less heat and is safer to use near paper.
- Card stock, I used this kind, which hold their shape really well, and are easy to cut.
- Xacto knife, Silhouette Portrait or Silhouette Cameo digital cutting machine. The downloads at the end of this tutorial includes both pdf templates for hand cutting and Silhouette cutting files.
- Optional: color tissue paper for colorful glow!
Cut the designs using a Xacto knife or the Silhouette Portrait or Cameo. Follow the color-coded lines of cut and score lines.
Create dimensional design details on the pine needles, pinecone, and flower petals by gently curling the paper at the cut lines.
