Evil Queen Paper Lantern – Disney Villain Paper Lantern Series

The final installment of my Disney Villain paper lantern series is here! Today’s vengeful villain is the original evildoer of Disney—the first of her ilk. Look out for those pernicious poison apples: it’s time to round off your contemptible collection with this rancorously ravishing Evil Queen paper lantern.

Watching Snow White is an unforgettable experience as a child…mostly because it’s terrifying! Seriously, this movie has no shortage of nightmare-inducing scenes: from Snow White being chased by a hunter trying to rip out her heart, to the trees in the woods becoming horrible monsters, to the queen turning herself into a terrifying witch. The scene that takes the cake (in my opinion), though, has to be when Snow White is in the cottage, and the Evil Queen (in witch form) is suddenly right there—peeking her hideous face into the window.

But, Walt Disney believed that kids were capable of handling scary themes in movies. Despite the nightmares she gave us as children, the Evil Queen has still managed to find a way into our hearts. So I suppose Disney was right.

My favorite part of this Evil Queen paper lantern has to be the poison apple! I’ve been wanting to make a paper cut design including that motif for a while now. I restrained myself when designing my Snow White paper lantern only because I knew I’d be making this design in a few shorts months.

To learn how to assemble my paper lanterns, see this tutorial.

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.

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.

These villain lanterns are the first ones I’ve ever used colored vellum with, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Also, I tried out the new Cricut Premium Fine-Point Blade on these lanterns, and, holy crap, that thing is amazing—my cuts were SO smooth!

(Tip: On my Cricut, I found that, with this particular vellum, the Light Cardstock setting worked better than the custom vellum setting I usually use.)

And there you have it! I hope you’ve enjoyed my Disney Villain paper lantern series! It’s been a lot of hard work, but I couldn’t be happier with the results. Put my magnificently malevolent Evil Queen paper lantern to good use, and have a happy Halloween!

      Thanks Helen! I usually get my opaque, white vellum from Michaels. This particular gold vellum I got from Hobby Lobby, and the other colored vellum I used for my villain lanterns I purchased from a site called Mulberry Paper and More. 🙂

    Is the vellum/liner part needed or can the lanterns be made without them? Like is the vellum more of an accent or is it a necessity?

      The vellum is just used to accent the design, so you don’t have to add it if you don’t want to. 🙂

    I love all the lanterns you have created. I’m waiting on some Moana art! It’s my daughters favorite right now.

      Hi Cristina! I’m so glad you enjoy my paper lantern designs. I’m not sure why the link is giving you trouble on your end, it seems to be working fine for me. It should take you to a file titled “EQ Paper Lantern.” https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8WXcinfu72UdDhSVEhIMkZqUVE/view?usp=sharing

      If you’re still having trouble, I might suggest clearing your browser cookies/history or trying a different browser. If it’s still giving you a hard time after that, let me know.

    I love these !! What candles did you use? I just made the jafar snake with red vellum and the amber tea light makes it look amber rather than red.

      Thanks Kim! Ooo, I’m so happy you were able to make the Jafar lantern—that’s one of my all-time favorites! I bought a big pack of little LED tea light candles on Amazon a while back, and they are still going strong. 🙂
