Sugar Kissed Luminaries

Hello friends!
Today we are sharing a tutorial for these super cute and easy to make luminaries!

I am showing you how to create the pink luminary in the above photo.
First take your paper and cut it to measure 6 x 12 for the medium,  9 x 12 for the large, and for the small luminary cut your paper 4 x 12.
Then Score the paper every 3 inches. You should then have 3 score lines on your paper so that when you fold it you will have 4 sides.

Next I took a decorative punch and punched across the paper, lining up my punch with each section.
The punch I used is by Martha Stewart. It's called Floral Tile All Over The Page punch.
I then creased my 3 score lines.

I then cut a strip of pink yarn and tied a bow around my luminary to hold it together.

I then placed flameless tealight candles in my luminaries!

These luminaries are so easy to create and add a lovely festive look!

Wishing you crafty day, Lindsey

I love luminaries! We used to put waxed bags with candles in them out in the snow each Christmas Eve when I was growing up in Ohio...what a wonderful memory!

Thanks for the fabulous tutorial--you always do such a beautiful job!

Have a lovely weekend, ladies!
