Introduction: EPIC Paper Lantern
This is an Easy Fast craft that looks cool and adds ambiance. This is a great piece if you are throwing a math party (wink wink ;). Or any party for that matter, it's an intriguing piece.
All you'll need is a pair of scissors,crisp folds, tape, and this template that can be printed out.
If you're looking for extra crispy folds, a good tool to add to your arsenal is a Triangular Engineer Scale, it's great for making folds.
Step 1: Cut / Color (if You Want)
Step 2: Fold
- Fold each line both ways to make the assembly process easier.
- You'll want to make sure the black lines are on the inside when folding together the lantern.
Step 3: Tape
Tape the inside seams for a cleaner look or tape the outside if looking to speed up the process.
Start with the bottom row (Labeled 1), then work the rest of the way up
Step 4: Finishing
There are 2 options:
If you don't have a battery-operated tea light candle, there is the option of coloring and designing the lantern.
If you do have a battery-operated tea light candle, then you just leave the lantern white and slide the lantern right over the candle and you're golden.
Step 5: Enjoy
