Hello everybody!

I want to show you how you can make a lamp or chandelier from paper cups

The construction is really simple. It is based on the shape of dodecahedron. It comprises 12 faces of pentagons. In this case, they are the rims of paper cups that are shaped by you through cutting and folding.

Step 1: Features and Make Cuts on Cups
