Introduction: The Lamp of the Paper Cups
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
Tools that we need
Measure the circumference of the cup and the number is divisible by 5
Draw a dashes and it makes an incision with scissors at 1 centimeter from the tip of a paper cup
Step 2: Prepare Cups
Bend cuts that we have done with scissors
We prepare all the paper cups (12 pieces)
Step 3: We Paste Glue
We paste the cup to each other
Until a ready figure in the shape of a dodecahedron
Step 4: The Final Stage
The final touch is put into the design of a light bulb
Next time, you will probably think twice before you are about to throw a paper cup away.
