i made a new real-life friend who also happens to be a fantastic blogger...amy writes the very cool blog H is for Handmade. last week she featured diy silhouette luminaries with a how-to -- i think they look awesome, and seem pretty easy to make!
use velum paper and print out a design on your computer -- if you hurry, you can make some spooky ones in time for halloween! also, think how cool these would look with some funky textured or patterned paper...the possibilities are endless!
