A Mid-Autumn Party

This is my design project for KCK's Challenge #1. This year's mid-autumn festival falls on 22 September and I'm seeing mooncakes for sale everywhere. Bought a dozen piglet biscuits for my younger relatives and eaten half of them myself !

Supplies :

KCK Glittering Glamour papers - #12075, #12076, #12072, #12064
Others - buttons, grommets, black cord



Completed lantern :

No candles for this little paper lantern - will string up some twinkly lights inside instead.
If anyone is interested in a template or tutorial, let me know here.



Completed piglet biscuit holders :

To add festivity to my piglet biscuit gifts, I removed the traditional woven-basket holders and presented them in these holders.



Here's the whole family of them, including a baby made for fun as it's too small to hold anything.



Now for a nice cup of tea as I enjoy another piglet biscuit.
