Light up Lantern

I have used a Tonic die to make this lantern.

I cut all the elements and attached red acetate to the back of the die cut sections. I assembled the lantern using red liner tape. Before attaching the base I die cut a small circle from the base. 

I have used two battery operated white tea lights. I glued them together and then attached a band of card around them using hot glue to hold them together making sure the switches are as close together as possible. I attached these battery operated tea lights to the inside of my lantern using hot glue with the switches protruding through the die cut circle on the base to allow the tea lights to be turned on and off easily.
To complete the lantern I attached a pretty embellishment on each side.
