“I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream.” Well, you’re not just dreaming today—I’ve got a new Disney paper lantern design I’ve been hard at work on, and I can’t wait to share it with you today! The long awaited Sleeping Beauty paper lantern is here! Experience the magical, iconic moment of true love’s kiss in this stunning new design.

Aurora was my favorite princess when I was a little girl. I remember when we went to Disneyland for the first time, I was so excited to meet her! Can you tell?
And even though I would later become more obsessed with Belle and Megara (because they have brown hair, like me), I still have a special place in my heart for Sleeping Beauty.
This design is a little different than most of my other ones. For the top of the lantern, I decided to design a pattern reminiscent of a particular object related to this princess. See if you can discover what that might be! I also tried to mimic the archways from the castle in the movie in the way the top of the lantern and the windows are shaped. Overall, I like the subtle way this design calls to the Sleeping Beauty story and imagery.

Like most all my paper lanterns, removing the final design from your cutting mat is as much of an art as the cut itself, so be sure to go slowly.
If you missed it last week, be sure to check out my new set of Disney Princess silhouettes as well (which includes, you guessed it: Sleeping Beauty)!
Enjoy my latest Disney creation! What plans do you have for this lovely, Sleeping Beauty paper lantern?
