Bebunni Table Lamp

This month's challenge is all about 'Tags, Bags & Boxes'. Design Team member Sarah Jayne made an amazing table lamp for inspiration, and she was kind enough to create a second one to show us all how she did it!

For this adorable project, Sarah Jayne used:


Here is what she shared:

Pic 1

1. BASE.....Using the Special Treat board, emboss around the Mini Milk carton which is nesting inside the large Milk Carton. I left one of the top tabs out as it was not needed for this.

Pic 2

2. Glue the side flap using Collall Tacky Glue.

3. Cut out a square of your card 2 ¼” X 2 ¼” for the base of the card, Glue into place & then fold over the top flaps & also using Collall Tacky Glue, Glue to close. (This is where the lamp Shade will sit)

4. SHADE... Using the Sweet Things embossing board, emboss & cut out three popcorn boxes.

5. If you want to put parts out of the shade to add acetate this is the stage you do it at. Here I used the Die’sire Magic Mirror Die on all three Popcorn Boxes which was all six panels.

6. Now place the lamp shade pieces into position where they will be glued, but where you can see the flap showing around the die you have cut. Mark it with a pencil & cut it away. Top tip: this is easier before you have started to glue

7. Now glue your shade together (as shown)

8. To measure the acetate for the windows, I placed a piece on top & used my craft knife to mark the acetate, leaving a small gap.

9. I used the Embossalicious 'Gothic Script' folder to add texture to my windows.

10. I used Collall All Purpose Glue to stick the windows & Collall Tacky Glue to finally make the finished lamp shade shape.

11. Lamp Shade Support: Print out your template (available by clicking ---> here <---), cut & score. Then transfer the same shape to a piece of Centura Pearl card (the extra weight card is needed)..

12. Snip the Corners & use Collall Tacky Glue & pegs to hold into shape until dry.

13. Use Collall Tacky Glue all around the lip of the Lamp Shade support & don’t try put it straight into place. Line up opposite sides & add pegs for support. Do this on all six sides.

14. Glue the top of the Milk carton & place the shade on the top & decorate as desired.

    Susan, try right clicking on the link and using save as...... or save link as... or save file as..... depends which browser you are using.
    Firefox always seems to open pdf's as blank pages but saves nothing if I try it :)

    This is a gorgeous project, I would really like to try this out but at the moment I don't have the Ultimate Pro or many of the other items used. Thanks for the template and inspiration though.
