Another Christmas Gift

One gift I made as a Christmas present pleased me no end!
I've been playing with the idea of magic lanterns for a while now and have a few plans for different ones but this is one I made for my brother who's really into astronomy

I made the light box using a tea light inside the box and made the slides to fit. The star charts are pics off the Internet and I've punched holes for each star in the constellation.

Really thrilled with the way it turned out and can't wait to make another with different slides in it!

Isn't it great when something you want to do works ?

Hope you've had a good week

X Michelle
