frosted papercut noel luminaries

The first (paper) noel

You can make your frosted paper Christmas luminaries in whatever color of paper you like. We chose a frosted white to complement our papercut herb wreath. But they would also be really pretty in a gold shade from our metallic golds pack

If using a cutting machine, this project will be quick and easy. As always, we like to add LED tea lights to our paper luminaries and lanterns, which give off a warm and cozy glow behind the vellum. We can’t wait to see how you decorate your mantel or table with these — share pictures by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram or by posting to the Facebook page for members!


Cut the template (we recommend using a cutting machine), then cut a piece of vellum to layer behind the design. Roll the paper and glue the ends together. Add your LED tea light, then put your luminaries on display!
