You Will Need
Once you download the lighthouse template files, choose which pages you would like to print, be sure to use a high quality print setting. Print the lighthouse templates onto white 8.5" by 11" card stock. One lighthouse fits onto a single sheet of card stock. Next cut around the template pieces.
Step 1: Using a craft knife, cut slits where the "X" appears on each window.
Step 2: To finish cutting out the windows you can either use scissors like I did here or if you're more comfortable with a craft knife finish cutting them that way :)
Step 3: Crease all the edges on the tower as well as on the lantern room. Using your fingers gently curl the dome tabs of the lantern room inwards.
Step 4: Apply double-sided tape or glue to the side tab off the lantern room.
Step 5: Match up the 2 edges of the lantern room. Hold until dry.
Step 6: Apply glue to the tab off the tower. Match up the tower edges and hold until dry.
Step 7: Fold all the tabs on the bottom of the lantern room inwards. Apply glue to all these tabs.
Step 8: Place the lantern room glue side down onto the top of the circular balcony. Hold until dry.
Step 9: Fold the tabs off the top of the tower inwards. Apply glue to all the tabs.
Step 10: Center the lantern room on top of the tower, then press and hold until dry.
Step 11: Turn on your tealight and insert it through the dome of the lantern house.
Step 12: Fit the dome tabs together at the top and volia! You're now finished your wee lighthouse. Now all those paper boats can sail safely to shore ;)
