Frozen Paper Lantern - Designs By Miss Mandee

Frozen Paper Lantern

Fellow Disney-lovers and die cut enthusiasts: get ready for another, one-of-a-kind paper lantern design. Today’s addition to my Disney Paper Lanterns Series has been in the works for weeks, and on my mind for months! I just knew it would be a perfect reflection of the season and a great one to present around Christmas time. So, without further ado, I give you my fabulous Frozen paper lantern!

Be sure to check out my other Disney paper lantern designs in this series!

It’s hard to fully explain the journey I go through whenever I create one of these designs. From concept to finished product, it takes me upwards of 14 hours. I question every decision I make about the composition and the first run never goes quite right (I tend to overestimate how much detail my cutting machine can handle and end up needing to go back and tweak the design). Not to mention, assembling these delicate pieces, while incredibly fulfilling, can be somewhat tedious as well. But, in the end, I get to hold a beautiful, unique, 3-dimensional art piece in my hand and it never fails to fill my heart with happiness!

I use a Cricut Explore to do my die cut designs, and I absolutely love it! For tips on creating this delicate paper cut, see the FAQ section on my website.

I love how much is going on in this design: I feel like it captures the story pretty well. You get the classic Elsa, confidently wielding her icy powers, the intricate ice castle tucked into the mountainside, and Anna, Kristoff, and Sven on their way to find Elsa and bring her home.

I hope this Frozen paper lantern brings you as much joy as it does for me! I’ve received lots of requests for other Disney-themed lanterns for my series, and I can’t wait to get started on the next one. Stay warm out there and happy holidays!

      Oh my goodness Sue, you are so right! Especially with the velum; these just look so beautiful with a light behind them, using it as a night light cover would be beyond lovely!

    I am making these for my daughter’s 4th birthday and she absolutely LOVED the tangled one that I’ve had the chance to assemble and put a battery operated tea light in, she carries it around everywhere, it’s a little battered so I’ll be making more before the party. Thank you so much for doing these, your work is amazing and appreciated! Merry Christmas!

      Thanks Tammy! Yes, you are not the first to request Mulan, and I’ll add Sleeping Beauty to my list as well. My list is getting so long that I will probably be sending out a voting form to my readers/followers soon so that I can prioritize and give you guys what you want most. 🙂

      Hi Leslie,

      To download any of my design files, simply click the “Download” button on that blog post page (just below the main image). You will then be directed to where the file is hosted on Google Drive. From there, you can download it (click the down arrow icon in the upper right-hand corner) and save it to your computer.

      Note: If you are on a tablet or mobile device, you will need an app that can unzip files.

    I adore these! I have a quick Question what size paper do you use when making them with the Cricut? I think I might need to buy a different matte I have the 12×12. Thanks so much! Kate

      Hi Kate! I use 8.5″x11″ cardstock, so you are perfectly fine with a 12″x12″ mat! The template is already sized to fit an 8.5″x11″ sheet of paper, but you can definitely make it larger if you’d like. 🙂

      Feel free to check out my FAQ section for more info about paper cutting.

    Can’t wait to try this out for my daughter’s Frozen Bday! I absolutely ADORE my Cricut and have a bunch of projects saved up as treats for when I get work done (cricut projects vs. chocolate, tough call)
    Thanks for sharing your work! Definitely going to the top of the pile

      I love that! Using Cricut projects as a reward system—so awesome! 😀

      Hope your daughter likes them and has a great birthday!!
