getting ready for christmas

I really love the paper lanterns with light and thought it would start a great christmas-atmosphere in my minihouse.

After a lot of google searches this is what I came up with. It really gives a lovely glow and it's even visible from outside our house ;)

I also made these items. The plant was a kit from Anja van den Doel and the paper miniatures I found in different blogs/ sites. The book of Beauty and the Beast is from Ann Vanture who had lots of lovely paperminis.

Lara at gave the link for the paper star on her blog. She found it at:, thank you!

The boxes I also found on the internet....but I can't recall where I got them. If someone recognizes them, please let me know, so I can give credit to the designers!

Have a great and creative day

Hoi Evelien, de ster komt van het blog van Miette (ik had het mini gemaakt, maar oorspronkelijk kwam het bij haar weg).
Mooi gelukt die van jou. Hoe groot heb je het gemaakt (ik had 1cm gedaan).

Groet, Lara

I also found the star map Blog Miette. I found the printable, but there are no instructions for building the star. how big is yours?? I do not know how to reduce the original design ... would be nice to put in a micro light bulb!
please can you give instructions to me via email?

@Lara: dank je wel, nu weet ik het weer! Zal de link toevoegen. Heb de ster 2,5cm diameter gemaakt.

@Caterina: I made the star 2,5cm in diameter. You can find how to build the star here:

I made a template for my star with light, if you want I can mail that to you. It is a different sort of star, but it look good too.

groetjes Evelien

That star is wonderful, I love the warm glow, and even knowing your great skills in minimaking I was sure it had to be lifesize!

Evelien zei

ooh! I love that tiny lantern!! It's just amazing!
I want one too!
I always wanted a big one but Im lacking of space so the tiny one would be perfect :)

Stephanie Kilgast zei

Well I should probably not ask, but I'd like that template too *___*
But I can gladly offer you something in return, I do a lot of minifood and I always have lying pieces just about everywhere :)
