Pattern page: Make your own paper lantern.
Pattern Pages help you make great projects! This project creates a paper
lantern and offers lots of room for creativity. You can use thin
paper to let more light shine or you can use heavier paper (creates a
sturdy cylinder). Paint or use markers on translucent paper.
Cut out holes on heavier paper. When you are satisfied with your
pattern, roll the paper into a cylinder shape and tape it together.
Place your cylinder over a flashlight and voila! a lantern. You can
also place your lantern over a votive candle (that is safely set into a
glass votive holder). Be very careful to avoid flames and be
absolutely sure to explain (even to babies) that matches, flames, candles
and fire are never for them to touch - only for grown-ups. Tin
