I saw these pretties on pintrest (my new obsession) I knew I wanted to learn how to make some to use for Lorelei's up coming birthday. I used scrap scrapbook paper I had, so the result isn't too bad with completely uncoordinated paper.
You can do circles of any size. I think next time I will do some smaller ones.
|Get your special circle cutter out|
First you cut 20 circles of the same size. (I would suggest using more coordinating paper)
|Cut out 20 circles|
|Fold in a triangle|
|Have 20 of these|
|Glue together. Note Start with a Circle of 5 not four|
-Once you have your bowl of five make a ring of ten then attach another bowl of five. This sounds confusing, but when you put it together it will just fall in place.
-Before you completely close it tape securely a pretty ribbon to hang your gorgeous lantern with (I used cooking twine since I was just experimenting.)
And Viola you did something crafty! Now I am off to buy some paper that will actually go together. Lorelei's Party is going to be sooo cute!
|Tape and Glue string inside lantern|
|Hang and enjoy|
