3D Luminarie project for people that don’t make 3D projects with video

There was a stutter in this broadcast, please pardon the gremlins of the internet  🙂

The Occasions, or Spring, Catalog release from Stampin’ Up! is here! In celebration, I am sharing a 3D project with all you crafters that do not make 3D projects (me included!). What looks like a box, delicate and fancy and lights up? This very easy project that is not actually a box. Let’s check it out!



This 3D luminarie, or tealight candle cover, is created with card stock, vellum and adhesive. I used vellum in order to allow the soft glow from a battery operated tealight candle be able to se seen easily. The die cuts are made from Basic Gray card stock, which provide stability for the vellum. The vellum is a thin barrier and works nicely with the die cuts. I used the largest die from So Detailed Thinlits dies set, but you can make this project with most any intricate dies. This set works very well for my project.


Measurements for this project are:
-Cut vellum panel to 11″ x 3 1/4″
-score 1/4″ along the long side of the vellum
-score the vellum now every 2 3/4″, giving you four equal sized folds
-snip the three folds at the 1/4″ score line
For the die cuts, use the size of card stock that will allow you to make 2 die cuts (I used Basic Gray)

To assemble the luminarie, cut paper and score as indicated above. Fold the score lines and snip where indicated as well. Attach the die cuts with Tear & Tape adhered to the tab section of the die cut, one onto each corner. I chose to attach one in the middle fold and then use the other die cut to close the two ends together. Once die cuts are on, I used a few glue dots to hold the top portion of the die cuts to the vellum, for security. The last step is to fold in the small folds on the bottom and attach the corners on top of one another with a glue dot.

For a visual demonstration of this project, take a look at the video I made for this project.
