Sledding Snowmen Lantern

Today for my project I'm going to show you a winter themed lantern I created.  I used ScrappyDew's Sledding Snowmen  (scroll down to view all the patterns) cutting files to decorate my lantern.
Lantern Pattern by Sandra's Scrapsels , converted to cut with MTC. 
This is the first side, as you can see he is winding up for a snowball fight.

This is the second side and this guy is in a race to avoid them! LOL Some additional photos.

You can see just how small I cut these snowmen and they still cut great on the Expression. I love Rob's files because they are arranged in layers according to color and also 1 layer has the file completely put together. Which is very useful if you like to do Print n Cut's. Just open the file, size and print. How easy is that!

some added greenery

Side view, you really can't see from the photo but there are many layers to this lantern. You have the side of the lantern, then a vellum layer sandwiched in between the face of the lantern, a top decorator piece and then the icicle layers.
