Tin[foil] Lantern

This week at the Pile It On! Challenge, our theme is "All that Flickers," so I decided to do something a little different and made a faux tin lantern:


The box opens flat, so it's really easy to put in a small battery-powered tea light:

The pieces are cut from a silver paper and covered with heavy-duty tinfoil. For the sides, I stamped flowers in black StazOn, colored them with Sharpies, and then pierced the outlines with my awl. I also created a border with my embossing tool.

For the lid, I embossed the tinfoil-covered piece with a Cuttlebug folder in my BigShot. I attached a tin-can flower (which was cut/embossed in my BigShot) to the top with a "hitch fastener" by TH/Idea-ology that I colored with a silver Sharpie.
