It’s a good day when you can do a simple craft and enter a giveaway for the “new pink Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone.“
I’ve got a very simple tutorial on how to make a paper lantern. I’m going a bit overboard with the outdoor candles & patio lighting, but I love them! I showed my favorites when I was on AMNW Local News show and now I’m showing you a simple simple tutorial for making a quick paper lantern. I like simple. I made these to slip over my favorite glass pillar candles that I pick up at my local dollar store.
There are fancier ones out there, but I love how fast and simple these are. I don’t plan on keeping them for an extended period of time and it was a fast way to make a center piece.
How to Make a Paper Lantern
- Cut your paper to the desired size. I used 8×8, because I wanted them skinny. Play around with different sizes to find what you need.
- Fold your paper in half. If you’re working with a paper size that isn’t even………like a 12 x 8, be sure to fold it so your lantern the right direction needed for the desired dimensions.
- I used my paper cutter, cutting the folded end and all the way in……leaving about an 1/2 inch uncut from the end. This can be done with scissors or an exacto knife, but I find the paper cutter easier and safer.
- Unfold and attach the ends with adhesive. If it doesn’t look right, you probably have the wrong ends attached.
