I was thinking of adding some code to trace out text or textures in the flat window as it builds the first layer (on my printer, this can be done by putting in extremely thin cuts, not sure if it would be compatible with other printers though). I hadn't considered cutouts or indenting, that would be cool. Feel free to modify the code or add a window customizer if you have any desire to do so :)

window style - The window can be generated as a flat sheet and rolled into a cylinder (this lets you make a thin transparent or translucent window) or you can print the window as a cylinder.
led holder - you can build a led holder into the lantern, or print it with a flat base and add a led tealight (or use the LED holder at thingiverse.com/thing:45028).
dimensions - You can adjust the dimensions of the lantern and the various gaps to get it to work with your printer specs. Test prints can help to get the correct dimensions: thingiverse.com/walter/collections/test.
Check out the attached diagram for more info on the customizable parameters
warning: I haven't tried using it with wax tealight candles and wouldn't recommend it (the lantern will probably melt). A larger one might be ok with the taller glass votive candles.
