How do I make Chinese Candle Lanterns, and the flame-proof paper to go with it, please?

How would I go about making those chinese lanterns that float in the sky, please?

My main concern, I suppose, is to flame-proof the paper; how would I do this, please?

Thanks.

Thank you both - I'm going to do this this weekend with my 3yo g/daughter!
(She can supervise me - as 3year-olds do!)
Likewise, only we used dry cleaning bags and sticks from the yard. Not the safest or most reliable thing in the world, but very cool when it worked. I'm reasonably certain we never started a forest fire....
