paper jolies lampshade
I have another CHA booth sneak-peek for you! These adorable, paper-flower embellished lamps will be displayed in our booth, adding a warm, inviting feel. These lampshades are a project you could easily do for your home. I plan on putting one of these lamps in my daughters room after the show!
Here's a little tutorial on how these were created...
Start by stamping a favorite flower on white paper and color them in. I used the big flower from Jolies Fleurs, and I've colored them in with Copic Markers in shades that match our booth (and my daughters room, convenient, huh? :)) Cut out the flowers.
Bend the corners of the flowers up a bit to give them a dimensional feel. Then attach them to the top of a cute lampshade! I just put a few glue dots on the back of my flowers and they worked great! If you want them a little more permanent, I'd try double-sided tape.
Another idea...try adding some sparkle with a jewel-brad in the middle of your flowers! This one is from SEI. Super cute!
