Paper Craft for Christmas - Santa Luminaria Bag

Luminaria bags are easily decorated with paper napkin motifs. If you tear your napkin motif out rather than cutting it, it looks more natural when glued onto the bag. Add a touch of glaze and glitter and you have an elegant decorated that adds not only light, but also warmth (due to the candle) to your home during the winter months.



Christmas Luminaria Bag

For this project you will need:

- paper luminaria bag
- paper napkin of choice (prefer a napkin where
  the motif covers half of the napkin vertically if
  you can find one)
- paper napkin applique glue
- 3D glaze or dimensional paint
- iridescent glitter
- paint brush
- candle
- glass for holding candle




1. Tear the paper napkin motif out and use only the top napkin layer. Adere the napkin to the bag and let it dry completely. You can also adhere the napkin using fusible web (both tutorials in the tutorial links below). The advantage of this technique is that you do not have to wait for the napkin to dry and also there are less wrinkles in the motif.
2. Add 3D glaze to the details.

3. Sprinkle glitter onto the wet glaze and tap off the excess glitter. Let it dry.

4. Once dry, place a candle inside of a glass (for safety reasons) and place glass inside of bag.
