Star Lanterns - Free SVG Cutting File!

Today I have a free SVG Silhouette cutting file for you all! This time a Star Lantern... I made this as a prop for some photography I'm doing, and loved them so much I thought I'd share!

I made two, one actual size and then I reduced it to around 75% to make a second, I cut them from premium copy paper - around 90gsm - you don't want anything too thick or the light won't shine through, but not too thin or it won't be sturdy enough to stand up! I then popped a battery operated tealight in each to give them a lovely glow, they would make gorgeous Christmas decorations or table centrepieces. I also used the cut out stars as confetti - I love stars and couldnt just throw them away!

You can see more of my Silhouette designs here in the Silhouette online store or here in my own store (where you can also see my other designs and craft products)

Thanks so much for dropping by today!

  1. thank you Sarah. I love these. Had something similar when I went camping a couple of years ago. You had to put sand or pebbles in the bottom, then you could put a proper tea-light in... they looked pretty outside the tent in the evening. They were flameproof though I think - they must have been. I think it was similar paper to the sky lanterns you get - only a bit thicker.

    Anyway - these will look very pretty at Christmas or while the nights are drawing in.

    Thank you again.
