day 24 - paper sconce tutorial

As you can see, I apparently have a slight obsession with tea lights and candles at the moment. I made a Paper Sconce for my Pebbles pattern and the good news is that if you're interested, you can make one too. Making it by hand won't be a problem with this pattern. The random uneven shapes will be very forgiving.

I've made all the files available to those of you that would like to make this project by hand (PDF), with your Silhouette (DXF) or any other cutter (SVG). Download here.

I'd rather play it safe and emphasize the fact that I used LED tea lights for this project. DO NOT use candles under any circumstances—please! I do not want to be responsible for any fires. (scary!)

Can't you see these many of these along a wall at a big event? I'd love to see something like that.

Have fun and if you have any questions please let me know.

Work a great deal with evening effects, a lamp, a candle, etc. The tantalizing thing is not always to who the source of light, but the effect of light.
