1- Clip your wire into a circle and hot glue. Reinforce joint by wrapping with wire to make your circle extra secure. Note: each lantern requires 2 loops – 1 for top and 1 for bottom. (Our loop shown here is 10 inches in diameter)
2- Make a cross bar with your wire. This is only necessary for your lantern’s top loop, and is used for hanging.
3- You should now have 2 loops of the same size- 1 with a cross bar and 1 without
4- Hot glue your top loop about 1/2 inch or so from the edge of your paper making a 3D shape. Do the same with your bottom loop on the bottom edge of your paper.
5- You should now have a tube like shape. Use your hot glue to seal the seam down the side of your tube.
6- Voila! You’ve got a lantern. Hang with fishing line for a floating effect & cluster different sizes and width lanterns to create a focal point!
We loved the effect of these lanterns for a pop of color and whimsy this season and we hope you do too! Try them out and send us your pics at email@example.com – we’d love to see ‘em!
“Is that real film we used in our lookbook???,” you ask. Well… Yeah! We absolutely love the grainy retro feel of real film and we thought (fingers crossed) you might appreciate it too. These are a few of our developed images and a little bit of the actual film as well. When planning our shoot, we talked about a fun bohemian 70′s appeal, and the first things that came to mind were all the fantastic film photos of our parents from the 70′s. Well, we figured we’d give it a go ourselves, and turns out, we kinda like it and you may just be seeing more where this came from!
Happy Spring ya’ll! We are so excited for the new spring items rolling in and the great weather!

Hey There! My name is Charlie Townsend. I am from Jackson, MS and my interests include music (any kind as long as it’s good), food, podcasts (This American Life being my favorite), Suits, hot English Breakfast tea, long stories, soft drinks (also hard drinks), sunflower seeds, TV on Blu Ray, Tie bars, my couch, Esquire magazine, quiet evenings, rowdy evenings, and fine carpentry.
Here at Libby Story I am the Retail Designer and Production Builder. My job is to help give the stores their look as well as to design and produce original, hand made pieces that will be sold at our various locations. These designs will be a variety of pieces for use in your home (or office) such as tables, chairs, hanging wall art or accent pieces, lighting fixtures etc. Some will be rehab pieces, some original builds. All will be made with an accent on vintage style usually with a rustic flavor
Along those lines you will soon be seeing some brand new lines of furniture coming out of the LS factory very soon. Each line will be handcrafted and designed so that no two pieces are exactly the same.
Happy Holidays & stay tuned for more updates….
