Adventure is out there: a fun mantra from an adorable movie. I’m stoked to be sharing my latest design in my Disney Paper Lanterns series today! The film Up is known for it’s sense of fun, unlikely friendships, and, of course, for making everybody cry from a 4-minute sequence that doesn’t even have any lines involved. So, I did my best to capture at least a portion of those feelings in this cute Up paper lantern design!
It’s been a little while since I’ve added to my paper lantern collection, but I always have a good time designing these intricate little pieces. I’ve even installed some fun shelves in my office to display my growing collection!
As a central figure to the story, I really wanted to capture all the quirky details in the Up house, and that is definitely the part that I spent the most time with (as you can probably tell)! Overall, I am just thrilled with how it turned out.
But, of course, this design wouldn’t be complete without Carl, Russell, and Dug the dog!
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—especially around the details of the house.
Enjoy making this adorable Up paper lantern! Who do you know that would love this paper craft?
