Stamp and Colour
Step 1: Stamp and Colour
  1. Take your favourite stamp or stamps and using the Versa Mark stamp pad, Stamp across the page in landscape format.(Note do not stamp onthe lined template side)
  2. Choose your favourite colours. Our artists used pink,red, purple, blue and green. Some of the colours were repeated.
  3. Sprinkle a little of your first colour across the page and shade in. Wipe hands inbetween different colours.
  4. Repeat this process until you come to the bottom of the page.
  5. Brush excess colours into blending pots or container for future use.
  7. If using the template turn the paper to the back side with the lines on it.
  8. Cut along the broken line to make the handle.
  9. Lightly fold the page in half and cut along the lines until you reach the unbroken lines on the landscape edge.
  11. Turn the page over. Using a ruler draw a line across the short side of the page 1.5cm wide. Cut on this line to make the handle.
  12. Now, using a ruler mark the remainder of the page 1.7cm from each edge. Join up these dots to make a rectangle 1.7 cm from the edge.
  13. Measure the inside edge of the rectangle. Divide it equally making each dot about 1.7 cm along the long edges. Join the dots from side to side makin light lines across the short part of the rectangle.
  14. Fold lightly in half length wise and cut along the lightly drawn lines until you reach the unbroken line of the rectangle.
  16. Lightly colour the back or inside of the lantern.
  17. Place one short side over the other and glue into place.
  18. When completely dry take hold of the inward facing creases and tease them proud with your fingers so they are facing outwards.
  19. Glue or staple handle to the top.
  20. If you make a collection you will have a great party or Christmas decoration.
