Origami Paper Lanterns

You will need: A string of Christmas lights; Origami or scrapbook paper

For this project I chose a pad of 8×8 scrapbook paper. Scrapbook paper gives you more exciting options as far as designs go. Plus they’re already color coordinated so you know all your lanterns will compliment each other. You can really use any kind of paper, just as long as you cut it so it is square before you start.


How to fold the lanterns:

Attaching the lanterns: With a pair of scissors, cut the opening so the light bulb can fit inside, but the paper still holds it in place.


Then simply slip the bulb into the opening.

Repeat this process for every light bulb. Now just hang your lanterns and wait for dark.
