My version of a lantern

We were tasked to make flower lanterns for this project. It marks the end of the semester and the start of the holidays!!

My chosen flower:
My interpretation:

Polycarbonate sheets, wire, cellophane and a flashlight!

**While I'm still working on the bags, I'll be posting my other works instead!

Bags and Sailing

Sailing the Long Island Sound, New York with my dad, about a year ago.

Then the bags..

There's something really nostalgic about sailing and these bags.. They're made of recycled sails. Everything about it is so nautical!
The bags go for about $100. Check out their site:
