PAPER LANTERNS, A FUN FAMILY CRAFT!

Welcome! nice of you to stop by...........you may want to gather your colored papers, some scissors and some glue or tape. We are having a birthday party next Saturday, it will be at the pool and screened in Gazebo....so I thought of this for some evening ambience.

 I found this very cool paper at Tuesday mornings..



So first you cut a desired piece as big or little as you want it.



 Fold the edges over a couple of times
 Use something strong to run over the seams
 
Now just cut up to the fold, open and close with tape or stick glue at the end.
 
 Now all you need is a tea light and viola
Seeing that everyone had a hand in this craft we got several different sizes




The kids really enjoyed the final phase of the making!



 Going from simple paper to something so lit and bright!

All of your family will want to craft these lanterns....a really fun family activity for little or no money. Brown grocer bags would also work and take the fun to the next level by letting your little ones decorate the paper.
 
Hope you and your family will have a fun craft day!
