A Lantern for Camping

This lantern was made for my DH's best-est friend from Elementary School (and that was a long time ago).  They went camping together with the Boy Scouts at Camp Royaneh. This was one of the camps they enjoyed together as kids during scouting.  This 3D lantern is from, their SVG Collection called Camp Smore found here. Papers used Core-dinations Canvas Olive Green, plaid papers from Recollections plaid pack and Vellum Card stock.  Lifestyle Crafts Cross Hatch Embossing Folder used on the handles. Finished size is 8-1/2" tall by 5" wide.  
Back of the Lantern:
It looks so cool with the tea light on:
Here is a closer look at the banner: all the edges are sponged with brown ink. This banner was taken from another project int he collection but it fit great on this lantern.
Lantern top has a twine knot with a moth (included in the SVG cut file). I love the rustic brads that hold the top and side. 12 brads used for this project.
At the base is a resin button with a twine bow.
This project wwas very quick tomake and I love how it turned out. Thank you for coming to visit today. May this inspire you to make one of these lantern, too.
