  4. This is a totally AWESOME craft project! Not only am I the Queen of Bargains, but I am also the Queen of the super cool craft projects that teachers can do with their kids when they have a teeny-tiny budget but high craft standards. This is a real winner. I want to share it on my bargain blog readers:

  10. I'll try variations with embroidery hoops or tomato cages to make a tall cylinder like those pri$ey lamps I've seen in artsy furniture shops, using battery tea lights for small or other safe lights far from the paper. Mulberry paper with embedded petals will look great, can buy in large sheets at some art stores for a few bucks.

  11. Great idea! I'm thinking of making this for Diwali - the festival of lights.
    Thanks!

  17. I found you through pinterest and tried to download the file and it is not mac compatible. :o[
    Is there another way to get the file.

  18. Sweet, I love pinterest! I made this tut forever ago and it's nice with sites like pinterest ppl can find it again. I have a Mac as well and made it on a Mac. I think the site we use to host the tut is kinda clunky, I'll have to see where else I can hold the pdf file. Until then if you want to e-mail me at infusedgoods@gmail.com I can send you the file.
