Tealight lantern for machine cutting.  Easy to assemble (after cutting).  It's just tabbed and slotted together and the top tied with a ribbon.  The bottom is mostly open to make it easy to take the tealight in and out.

Credit for the window shape and birds goes to Cindy, from http://papercutting.blogspot.com/2010/11/template-tuesday-hanukkah.html.  
I found the flower motif at https://picasaweb.google.com/108292124932450556338/Wycinanki#.

You can swap out the "Happy Birthday" panel with another flowered panel if you don't want to use it for a birthday card.

It looks lovely, I do adore intricate paper cutting.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
