    Cloud Lights: First, you need some cotton batting, a paper lantern, and three flameless candles, the type that Glade sells. Pull at the cotton batting until it looks fluffy, light, and cloud-like. Then, hot glue it to the outside of the paper lantern in various places. Make sure it's fluffed to your liking, then light the lights and stick them inside. Hang the lantern wherever you'd like. ohhh man need to incorp. this into a shoot!

    This craft is a spin on the classic craft of paper doll making. The twist is that the inside of the clothing on the paper doll is cut out so that you can change the doll’s outfits by slipping different-colored or patterned artwork behind the cutout.
