Today I’m going to light up your world – or at least show you a fun way to light up your world for yourself. I used my ScanNCut to create these very simple (but highly effective) cut paper leaf votives.
I used painted plastic to cover the cut areas, but you can also leave (pun intended) them completely open if you wish, as in this example below:
To be super safe, be sure to use battery operated LED votive candles inside, instead of real candles.
If you’re interested in making a project like this one, here are some helpful resources for you:
- Watch my video on ScanNCut perforations (those dashed lines that create folds).
- Visit CanvasWorkspace Online and look for the FREE “Love Story Lamp Shade” cut files and project instructions.
- Watch my video on how to create a votive holder from a bookmark cut file.
