    I am totally loving this!! Could you share how you did this? What kind of paper did you use?

    I love the glow that the vellum produces!  I don’t think that the pattern is too light at all.  I do prefer the cylinder to the prism, because it appears to have more substance.  (Without it it looks like it might tip over with the slightest breeze.)

    Where did you get the LED votives?  I’m looking to purchase them in quantity but don’t know what a good price range would be.

    I think the cylinders look like they’re less work, so I’d go with them.

    Those are both very pretty. I think either would work and it’s up to you and your personal preference — either what you like or what is a reasonable amount of work for the project! I say that because I’m in the minority voting for the rectangle. I like squared edges, but again both are really pretty. I love the glow!

    these are so pretty!  I love the rectangular prism.  To me, there is a little more mystery in how they are glowing whereas the round obviously are votive holders.  Either way they look great, I don’t think you can make a bad choice here!

    Are these your centerpieces?  Where are these going?  If they will be on tables, what shape are the tables?  I always thing round things look better on round tables.  If it’s for like an aisle into your reception venue or somthing like that I’d do the square ones (and find a way to weigh them down) because they would look so cool lighting the sidewalk up to a venue at night!!
