DIY Post: Simple Lanterns

Lanterns_Post

 

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 info@libbystory.com – we’d love to see ‘em!

 

 

Fashion Post: Behind the Scenes

“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!
