Square lantern

Deutsch

 

What you need: 

 

cardstock, 

scissors, 

knife, 

transparent paper 

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

glue, 

pencil

 



Cut out two pieces of cardstock. 

One should be 24.5 x 8 in large, the other 7 x 7 in. 



Fold one of the short edges of the large piece up (about 0.5 in). Divide the rest of the stripe into four parts of similar size (6 in each).



Draw a rectangle into each part leaving a margin of about 0.5 to 1 in to the edges. Cut out the rectangles with a knife.



Cut rectangles out of transparent paper that 

are a little larger than the cardstock ones.


Cut the transparent paper rectangles 

into the windows of the cardstock stripe.



Fold up the edges of the other cardstock piece (about 1 in). 

Cut into the corners and glue the edges together.



Glue the cardstock stripe around these edges.



Make two small holes into the upper rim of the lantern on opposite sides. 

Pull a piece of string or wire through the holes for hanging.
