excellent concept, nice look, recycling green planet props... i gotta make one.

But wait! what if a comet hits the power station, and there's a huge power surge!!! even your little light will surely burst into flames!!! or worse smoulder releasing undetectable toxic gasses that will make me lose my mind and just start setting stuff on fire!!!!

to all the people that keep the morons among us from blowing up the neighborhood, thank you. keep up the good work. hope you can take a little ribbing. if not, sorry. didn't mean to offend . but this guys project seems well, a little on the safe side to rate so much concern.. take care.

How do you get the string to maintain this "curved" shape??

This isn't what I would call "safe". There's a fire hazard you need to keep in mind while reading this instructable.

if you had the time or the inclination you could paint all the sheets of paper with waterglass,which is a type of sodium silicate, this would make the paper fire proof. i've used this method to make the outsides of paper rockets..

How do you make it not flammable? Even if you used LEDs, running electricity through dried paper is a huge no-no.
