Star Wars R2D2 and BB8 Wood Cutouts! Learn how to make your own Star Wars R2D2 and BB8 Droid cutouts using scrap wood, vinyl and paint.

How to Make a Luminary with Cricut Knife Blade

How to Make a Luminary with Cricut Knife Blade I love the new Knife Blade for the Cricut Maker .  This was my first knife blade project and I love how it turned out.  Learn how to make a fabulous lampshade or luminary with paper and chipboard.   Makes a unique piece of home decor or centerpiece for a fancy event. Just place over a simple lamp or use a battery operated candle inside. I posted this back in 2018 and then Cricut made some Design Space changes and my pattern was no longer available for a while. It's updated now and you can make this gorgeous luminary today! My luminary was designed to fit over an existing lamp that I made--all the details for this reclaimed wood lamp is on this  post here . This gorgeous luminary is easy to make and just uses paper and chipboard.  This paper luminary is beautiful on it's own. It looks like church windows, stained glass or delicate rice paper partitions.  This same pattern makes a great candle lantern too and the glow is perfection
