Design, create and enjoy paper while creating this beautiful woven lantern. You will:
- Discover a new way to weave paper
- Create a decorative home accent for yourself or give it as a gift
- Learn how to create a unique paper hinge that has multiple functions
The woven paper lantern is easy to disassemble for flat shipping (which makes gift-giving easy). Once you make one, you’ll be ready to design and create other shapes, sizes and projects, (think table runner, greeting card & window hanging).
You will need the following to complete this project:
Two pieces of paper that compliment each other, one 12” bamboo skewer that is 1/8” diameter, white glue, the hinge template printed on card stock, a battery operated tea light
Cutting mat, cutting knife, bone folder (optional), pencil, ruler, glue brush, heavy duty scissors or garden clippers, thin plastic place mat or dense cardboard
This project is suitable for all levels and requires skill with a cutting knife. It took an intermediate tester about 1-1/2 hours to complete and might take a beginner a bit longer.
Once you place your order, you will receive a 7-page PDF with step-by-step illustrated instructions, plus a template for the hinge.
This project was designed by me, Helen Hiebert, and is for personal use only. Please do not resell or distribute multiple copies of this guide, but please do feel free to share the link to this how-to guide with your paper-loving friends!
