Flower lantern



What you need: 


two small sheets of corrugated paper, 

art knife or scissors, 

two sheets of white transparent paper 

(e.g. coloured cellophane or parchment / greaseproof / wax paper), 

coloured transparent paper, 

coloured cardstock, 




adhesive tape, 

construction paper, 


brass fastener



The sheets of corrugated paper should not be larger than A4. 

Cut a rectangle out of each sheet leaving only a frame. 

Glue white transparent paper to the back of the frames.

Put the two sheets together in the form of a tube. 

Place the edges on top of each other and staple them together.


Measure the diameter of the tube. 

Draw a circle with the same diameter on a piece of cardstock. 

Cut out the circle.

Glue the circle into the tube using solid adhesive tape.

Make some flowers using corrugated paper. 

If you don't know how to do it, you can use these instructions:
