Ok so this is my first tutorial so please be kind!
I give to you the Saucy Lamp Wink


You will need:
- cereal box
- pin or sharp needle
- glue gun
- paper glue
- print out of your design
- some kind of light source ( I used red Xmas tree lights)
- scissors or craft knife

Step One
First what you need to do is decide what kind of design you want to put on your lamp.
I chose a vintage tattoo design of a naked lady.
Then you need to blow up your picture in photoshop or any other image editing software to roughly the size of an A4 sheet of paper, that's 21 29,7cm or 8.3 11.7in, or you could use a Letter size sheet of paper that will do just fine as well.
If you're using letters on your design you need to flip the image before you print it.
Once you get the size right print that baby out.

Step Two
So now you have your image printed you need to roughly cut it out and set it aside for a minute. Now take your cereal box and carefully open it up at the seams(where it's glued shut). Lay it out, printed side facing you and use the paper glue to stick your image on the box where you would like it to be. It doesn't necessarily need to be in the middle, depending on your design you could place it anywhere on the box.

Step Three
Now, take your pin/needle and carefully start pushing it through the outline of your design. You might want to put some holes inside the design too, to highlight shading or depth.




Step Four
Once your design is all punched out, take your scissors or craft knife and cut a small rectangle or square on one of the bottom side corners of the box. This is where your light source cable will come out from, so you can plug it in.

Step Five
Take your glue gun and stick the box back together only you're going to put the printed side on the inside, leaving the gray side showing. Don't glue the top opening shut, you need this open to put your light source in the box!

Step Six
Place your light source in the box, plug it in and enjoy your new lamp!


Hope you find this tutorial useful and if you have any questions leave a comment, and if you make one then I'd love to see it!
