“JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #3


EDIT:  I am posting this again to let you know I left off all the score lines.  Please see the change below in red.

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #3!   Every Wednesday up until Thanksgiving some of your favorite designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing JustRite’s entire Christmas Collection of stamps!  So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

Today my project was created using the JustRite "Backyard Birds" stamp set.  I created a luminary cover that can stand alone with a flameless candle inside but it also fits the base of the Febreze Flameless Luminary.  Mine is shown in the base.

To create the cover you will need two pieces of design paper cut 6 1/4" by 5 1/2".   Score each piece at 1/4" and 3 1/4 ".   When finished designing your cover, these two pieces will be taped on the 1/4" score line to create the cover.  Use a decorative punch along the top edge of the luminary cover.  You will also need 4 pieces of vellum 4 1/2" x 2 7/8" for the windows. 

I used the Nestabilities Label One for the opening in each panel.  The cardinal was gold embossed on the front of the vellum and colored with markers on the back.  This gives a stained glass look.  Each panel was attached to the backside of the designer paper with ScorTape.  I used a gold maker to outline  around the opening on the front.  Once you have your vellum panels attached and have added any additional embellishments on the front, place  ScorTape on the 1/4" narrow side of each panel and create your square luminary. 

I have also created luminary covers using the JustRite "Groovy Snowmen" and also the "Vintage Christmas" stamp sets.  They are all just as pretty.  These covers will fold down flat so will make great little gifts to send in the mail.  Like I said at the top, these can be used as a stand alone luminary with a flameless candle as well as in the Febreze base. 

Please visit these designers’ blogs to see what fabulous Christmas projects they have for you on the hop today!

Selma, Selma, Selma!!! Love this luminary! It says something about 1/4 inch score line but what about the "other" score lines? What are those measurements? I would like to make one for each of my 'girls' for Christmas. Could you please share? You do such fantastic things! Love it.
