A Christmas card that can change into a paper lantern: this is a one of a kind Christmas gift for someone really special. With letters 'Merry Christmas'. Handmade by me with dedication.

This Merry Christmas card is unlike all the others: it has a spatial typographic design that I've cut out of 3 layers of white paper that are attached to a white card. You can use it as a very special Christmas card and just write your Christmas wishes inside, but it has an additional function: when you fold the inner card backwards, thanks to a particular construction, a paper lantern pops up! Because of the multiple paper layers, it gives an enchanting light - you can't stop watching!

I also made a video of this card! Copy this link:

You can place the square paper lantern over a high glass candle holder (keep it safe), or use a LED tea light (recommended). For example a LED light that changes colour, it gives the card an even more special effect...

- approx. 5.7 x 4.1 inch (14,5 x 10,5 cm)
- made out of white quality paper
- blank inside (with only a small mention: -handmade- and my shop URL)
- includes an envelope in white, made of quality paper (90 gr/m2)
- includes a little piece of paper with instructions for the receiver of the card how to use the lantern
- LED tea light not included

About the typographic design:
Playing with typography is one of the things I like in designing. Especially de-constructing the letters of a message like I did for this paper design. I've parted the letters into geometrical shapes, that I divided over the three layers of paper. When you see those layers from the side, it will give an abstract image. From another side, you can read the message!

The card is completely handmade, all the paper cutting is done by me. It takes some time to make one, so if you buy the card, you know that you buy a unique item. Buy it as a gift for someone special, or give it to yourself: the card will keep its value because you can use it as a lantern every season.
