It’s here! The Thomas family vacation to Disney World, that is. We take off tomorrow morning, and I am positively giddy. But, before I go, I wanted to spread some of my excitement around by sharing a brand new installment to my Disney Paper Lanterns series. Take a peek into the door of your choosing and see what awaits you on the other side in this Monsters, Inc. paper lantern.
As we’ve been getting ready for our big trip, I’ve been prepping Davian by having him watch just about every Disney movie ever made (except for Song of the South because literally no one has ever seen that movie—NO ONE). Even though Monsters, Inc. isn’t one the “original classics,” it was the very first one we watched together because I knew he would get a kick out of it. He was engaged the whole, time and followed the story better than I expected. He even recognized that the ending was “so sad.”
With most of my paper lanterns it’s the characters/scenes inside each of the panels that steals the show. With these ones, though the characters are iconic and fun, I think the panels (doors) themselves bring so much personality to the overall design.
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, so be sure to go slowly.
Enjoy assembling this fun Monsters, Inc. paper lantern! Will you be making this cutie for yourself or another Disney/Pixar fan you know?
