Happy Thanksiving + Fall Decor Lanters by Monique Liedtke

Hello Doodlebug friends! It's Monique on the blog today and I'm so happy I get to share my Thanksgiving project with you.

I love spending time with my family and especially when it comes to having breakfast or dinner together. I love decorating the table for times like these, so I decided to create a little something for our Thanksgiving dinner. I chose a lantern cut file from the Silhouette shop and Doodlebug's Flea Market collection and got started. I cut three lanterns from my Petite Prints papers in three different colors and decorated these with die-cuts, (mini) doodle-pops, stickers and also one of Doodlebug's new cut files: the little fox. 

I love Doodlebug's new cut files and just needed to make this little fox with the fox cut file (you can find a Studio file in the Silhouette store here and the SVG file in Lori Whitlock's store here): 

Isn't he adorable?! I just love that the new cut files give me the opportunity to decide how large I want this fox! What I would also like to try is to create one in totally different colors, like maybe a blue or a green fox ... just for fun. 

And here are the lanterns one by one. I adhered some vellum behind the windows in two of the lanterns and left the other lantern "open". I love the brighter light of the (fake) candle in the open lantern, but I also love the soft glow caused by the vellum. 

The Doodle-Pops, like this night owl, are just perfect for projects like these as they offer just that bit of extra dimension.

Here the little black country crow is a mini Doodle-Pop, the mouse is a sticker from the sheet of Icons Stickers and the other elements are die-cuts from the Odds & Ends package: 

I really love how these turned out and can't wait to use them on my table! 

Here's just one more photo:

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today and taking a peek at my project. Wishing you a wonderful day!
