Happily Ever Lantern
We’re so pleased with how these lovely DIY wedding paper lanterns turned out. We’ve created a set of gorgeous templates accompanied by an easy-to-follow tutorial to make your crafting endeavors just that much simpler. Delicate and detailed, you’ll wow your wedding guests with these timeless table-toppers that will take no time at all to cut and assemble!
Tools & Materials
Download and print our SVG or PDF patterns. Cut metallic paper and frosted vellum accordingly. Put the lanterns together using a glue dot roller. Insert an LED candle and enjoy!
There are two versions of the templates – one with blank windows where you can glue on table numbers and one with just leaves. We used metallic paper from Paper-Papers in Bluebell and Aquamarine, and frosted vellum in Kiwi Pearl.

Using my Cricut it cuts the lantern in four pieces with a total of two tabs. How do i change the cut line to a score line so i have two attached pieces to make the four sided lantern? Help is much appreciated.
You have to select those lines that you want to score, then up in the top toolbar change “Cut” to “Score”. Then select the lantern cut layer and those score lines, and “Attach” them. Cricut has some great how-to videos and pages on their site if you can’t find what you need from our post: https://liagriffith.com/how-to-use-svg-files-for-cricut/
I downloaded this into Design Space and there were only 2 lantern faces. The last sheet had only cut lines. I am using Cricut Maker.
Hi Susan! The cut lines should actually be changed to “score”. then attached to the design before cutting. If you need more help using SVG files, check out our post! https://liagriffith.com/how-to-use-svg-files-for-cricut/
These are lovely. Making them for a friend to use at her 40 year class reunion as memorial lanterns for those classmates who have passed on. Beautiful on charcoal grey metallic paper, using printable vellum and printing In Loving Memory of …(classmate’s name) on the window meant for a table number. Thank you Lia for all of your inspiring ideas that make people feel special.
Aww how nice Kim, thank you for your kind words!
How do I down load your SVG files for some reason some zip files come up don’t know about zip thanks
The SVG file is inside the zipped folder. You should be able to double-click the zip file, and it will open the folder with the SVGs!
