We've all heard it said that necessity is the mother of invention. That is the case with my Angels Landing project today. I'm going on a trip in a few days (I think you've heard that I'm going to Georgia) and will be spending the night in different places along the way. One thing I hate is waking up in the middle of the night disoriented and confused about my surroundings so I decided to create a travel night light that I can pack up and carry with me.
The frame of my night light is made from a 3.5 x 11 inch strip of Baja Breeze card stock. I punched one of the long edges with my newly favorite EK Success punch (thanks, Liz!!) and trimmed off the ends of the 11 inch strip so that each side of the frame had three peaks at the top. I scored the card stock after every third peak and used my oval Nestabilities to cut an opening in each of the four sides.
I printed the flowers and leaves from Pierced Flowers by Angels Landing on card stock vellum and colored them on the back side with Bic Mark It pens. Next I printed the swirl pattern from Pierced Backgrounds on computer paper and laid the colored vellum panel over it. I then pierced the marked piercings on the flowers and the swirls in the background on each of the 4 panels. After I had cut each of the pierced pieces to 2.5 x 3 inches, I attached them to the backside of the Baja Breeze with Scor-Tape. The outside ends were brought together and taped with invisible tape to create the cube.
The light is provided by a battery operated tea light and you can see how easily it folds flat to fit in my suitcase. I think it will be just what I need for my trip from Texas to Georgia and back again!
