1. Trace the pattern onto your vellum sheet. Cut out the shape with your regular scissors. If you want, you can use decorative bladed scissors along the bottom edge to add another element to the shade.

2. If you like, use a paper punch to punch holes evenly or haphazardly throughout the shade, as shown in the PDF.

3. Using the glue pen, apply a thin line of glue to one straight end. Wrap the other end over the glued end, and adhere together, forming the shade.

4. Secure the tealight with the candle putty, and set the lampshade on top of your glass.
