A dream is a wish your heart makes, and, today, your wishes are coming true! The newest addition to my Disney Paper Lanterns series is here, and I think you’re going to love it! When I sent out a survey earlier this year to see what Disney film I should base my next paper lantern design on, this one was a SUPER close second. So, without further adieu, I give you the lovely, the enchanting, Cinderella paper lantern!
There are so many iconic scenes from Cinderella—I had the hardest time ever trying to figure out exactly what I wanted to include and how to include it. In the end, I knew I needed at least: (1) adorable mice, (2) a standout glass slipper, (3) a pumpkin carriage, and (4) the Fairy Godmother working her magic to make Cinderella the perfect dress for the ball.
In the end I got almost everything I wanted. You guys have no idea how hard I tried to work Cinderella’s iconic castle into the design. I wanted it to work, I tried every scale/perspective imaginable; but, in the end, it just wasn’t meant to be. But maybe it’s ok to not to include a castle for once (10 points if you can name the other three paper lantern designs I’ve created that feature a castle).
To learn how to assemble my paper lanterns, see this tutorial.
Like most all my paper lanterns, removing the final design from your cutting mat is as much of an art as the cut itself. With this one, make sure to take particular care in the “mouse making a dress” scene—that book outline is quite fragile.
I hope this Cinderella paper lantern is everything you hoped it would be, and that you find it as exquisite as I do! Oh, and remember: if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true!
