Based on a similar design from a popular retailer, this beautiful 11-pointed paper lantern features a simple flower cutout with petals in a unique hanging lantern style. Use them inside to add a decorative touch to the baby's nursery or a corner vignette, or outside for special occasions. They look stunning hanging from trees or tied to the back of chairs. You can also use them as centerpieces, mounted to a wooden dowel stand. They're sure to add a touch of elegance to your next event.

.mtc - Make The Cut
.scut3 - Sure Cuts a Lot 3

The second download is a PDF written and photographed by me, with detailed instructions and over 60 photographs to help you assemble your stars. See the FAQ section below to find answers to some of the most common questions I get about my paper star lantern cutting files.


Q: When will I receive my files?
A: You will receive a link to download your files right away.

Q: What kind of file will I receive?
A: Each design you request will come in a ZIP folder, which includes the following file types:

.svg - Scalable Vector Graphics (can be used with many different cutting programs, including Cricut Design Space)
.studio - Silhouette Studio legacy version 2 (works with both old and new Silhouette studio versions)
.pdf - Adobe PDF (print this file for hand cutting the stars)
.mtc - Make The Cut
.scut3 - Sure Cuts a Lot 3

Q: Help! My graphics program won't open the files you sent me!
A: You won't be able to open the ZIP folder with any of your graphic programs. You must unzip or extract the files first in order for them to be used. Most computers come with an extracting utility like WinZip or 7-zip. The easiest way to see if you have an extracting utility is to double-click the downloaded ZIP file and see what happens. More than likely, a window will pop up saying something like "Extract file to...". If that's the case, simply select where you'd like the files to be extracted, and follow the prompts that appear on your screen. (In some cases, the extraction will happen so fast that you may only see a blip on your screen! Just look in the folder where you downloaded the ZIP files and see if any new folders have been created. If so, they will contain the unzipped files.) If however, you get a message like "choose the program you want to associate with this file type" then you probably don't have an extracting utility installed. In that case, just head over to www.7-zip.org where you can download the same utility I use, and it's completely FREE. If you don't want to deal with ZIP folders at all, just let me know which specific file type you need (i.e. SVG) and I'll email you the individual files.

Q: What if the file type I want isn't included in the ZIP folder?
A: The listing covers the most common file types that people request, however, I can save them in many other formats as well. Just send me a convo before your purchase to be sure.

Q: I can't find the files I downloaded. Do I need to purchase them again?
A: No! You can access the files through your Etsy account. Just click on You (top right) and then click on Purchases and reviews. Find the item that you purchased in the list of your previous purchases. Click on the blue "Download Files" button to download your files again.

Q: What supplies do I need to make the stars?
A: Card stock weight or heavier is recommended for the star, and lightweight or transparent paper is recommended for the lining. I recommend a hot glue gun to assemble the stars, and a non-wrinkling scrapbook glue to attach the lining pieces. Additional supplies are listed in the PDF you'll receive with your purchase. You can also view/download the PDF here (you'll have to copy and paste the url into your browser):


Q: How big are the stars?
A: If you use the cutting files as is, they will produce a star approximately 9" (about 23 cm) in diameter. However, you may resize the files as necessary, to produce a star as large or as small as you like.

Q: Are the stars 3D on both sides? Or 3D on one side and flat on the other?
A: The stars look the same on both sides. There is not a flat side, so you couldn't set on a table, for example, and have it lay flat.

Q: Can I use these stars with a light cord?
A: Finished luminaries are designed to be used with either battery operated tea lights, LED bulbs, or light cords that use 5 watt bulbs only. Do not attempt to use a real flame or bulbs greater than 5 watts, for obvious reasons.

Q: Do you sell these stars already made, or as a kit?
A: I do occasionally take custom orders for stars and star kits, as time allows. Please convo me about availability. You can view a price list here (you'll have to copy and paste the url into your browser):


Q: Can I use these patterns to make stars to sell at a craft show?
A: You'll need to purchase the extended use license. Please see the link below:


If you have other questions that aren't answered above, please feel free to contact me via Etsy convo or email.
