Paper Lanterns For Outdoor Living

It’s time to get outside and enjoy the outdoors!

Even in New England, it’s now time to dust off those grills and put out the patio furniture. What better way could you celebrate your love of outdoor living than to decorate your deck, porch or patio with some adorable Table Lanterns.

The pattern for this lantern comes from one of my favorite SVG designers, Lori Whitlock ( and it fits beautifully on a 8.5″ x 11″ piece of card stock.
I usually pick up packs of card stock at Michael’s. I generally can find the 50 sheet Recollections card stock samplers on sale for about $2 a stack.

In this video, I show you how to assemble these Paper Lanterns step-by-step so you can easily replicate this project with your Cricut Explore or Maker.

This project is NOT available for purchase in Cricut Design Space, but it can be uploaded to your canvas after purchase. Once uploaded, you can cut all of the pieces expertly on your machine.

Miss Rita’s Cricut Design Space files are always FREE to use and there are literally dozens of great projects to choose from.

Hello there!

Thanks for reading all the way to the end!

Here’s a little about me:

My name is Ritamarie Cavicchio and I run this blog.
I am vlogging on YouTube with the same name!
I love to blog about a company called Cricut and all the wonderful machines they make that allow me to better craft my little world.

I’ve been crafting my whole life, but using Cricut machines since 2012 when my uncle asked me to celebrate the lives of a few beloved family members. From that one request, I was completely hooked on the Cricut brand! Back in 2014, the Cricut CEO chose me to be a Cricut Product Expert and I am the founder of three very popular Cricut-based groups on Facebook.

When I’m not blogging about my Cricut, I am “mothering” my son–aka “MO”–and my spunky and silly Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Ted E. Bear.

I am a native Bostonian and live in a beautiful (very) old house on Boston’s North Shore. I especially love exploring my wonderful city. I’ve been a Peabody-ite for the last 20 years of my life and while I might be a little biased, I think is one of the most amazing places to live, work and raise a family. PBD!

I am self supporting, so if you are interested in buying anything made by Cricut, please use my link:
When you use the “Miss Rita To The Rescue!” link and code MISSRITA2 you will receive an additional 10% off and free shipping on your order of $50 or more (some exclusions apply)!

Thanks so much for watching today!
Best always,
Miss Rita
