Tonic Studios | Patterned Panels for home decor

Just a quick post today. I have shared these photos over on Instagram and Facebook, and I thought it would be nice to explain a bit more about them.

Basically once I got the Patterned Panel dies from Tonic, I thought Home Decor! 

Tonic Patterned Panels Die Set - Deco Diamond - USA | UK
Tonic Patterned Panels Die Set - Sunflower Array USA | UK

I used metallic paper to die cut the Sunflower Array for the lamp and Diamond Deco for the battery operated tea light lantern.

The principle is the same in both. You need to die cut the pattern repeatedly across the legnth of your paper. Both Patterned Panels are perfectly seamless once die cut, the only thing you need to do is place the die overlapping the design already die cut and you will feel how it locks in to place. (For a video tutorial, check out Jo Austin's here on her blog.)

Then just glue them together at the end to create a circular lantern. For the lamp, I needed two A4 as it was wider diameter. 

I love how they look in my house beside the Beautiful Blooms bouquet.
