diamond lights

For those of you who follow me on IG, you might remember this or this when I had made a series of paper geo shapes for the String shelf in our bedroom including a paper diamond. I've had this idea churning in my head and decided to give it a try this past weekend.
I used some vellum paper & this template + instructions to make the diamond shape. Then I sprayed the diamond with silver spray paint, mostly on one side to leave the other still sort of opaque. Finally I cut a cross shaped slit at the top and put them over the lights. When the lights are on the diamonds glow since the paper is slightly sheer.

Let me know if you give this a try!

  3. Hi sweet Jennifer. I have made some of these diamonds, and it is quite some job! You have done five (or more) of them! :) Love the idea putting light in them. Now the diamonds really have some purpose.

    (I have been cutting and cutting the parts of the paper-globe that you also have. I saw it on your blog some time ago, and I didnt know that it was a tutorial to it. Yesterday i found it, and that made me so happy! I will take some pictures of it today, and maybe make a blogpost about it. I will credit both you for the inspiration, and the maker of the tutorial, on my blog.)

    Have a fine day, Jennifer!
