If you enjoyed our Fortune Boat Instructable (http://www.instructables.com/id/Fortune_Boats/), then you'll love this little Fortune Boat Lamp by one of the V&A Designers in Residence, Lao Jianhua.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
You will need:

- 9 Fortune Boats (try mixing different colours)
- 1 stapler
- 1 small glass jar
- 1 small tealight or votive candle
 
This made me smile because one of the sample games that came with my computer involves maneuvering origami paper boats past candles without touching them and lighting them on fire. And here are candles and paper boats and you still don't want them to burn.

I never thought of using origami in this way. I'm really inspired to think in a new direction. Thank you.

Any chance of a "lit" shot? It would certainly enhance the project.
Hi Kiteman, great idea! Coming soon... =)

I had a sudden thought - replace the tea light with an LED lantern and you could be the first national institution to enter an Instructable contest.
