Crafts for kids: Paper lantern tutorial.


- Scissors or paper knife.

- Color paper.

- Cardboard (used as a base for border and lanterns)

- Glue.

- Bamboo stick.

Step 1: Cut paper into the size (40x50) cm or (38x48) cm
Usually I buy the wrapping paper than the book will be cut in half as two pieces of paper.
Cutting 2 circles (as the picture) to make base lantern and top lantern.
Step 2:Arrange the length of the paper into zigzac shape.

After that arrange the first zigzac into the second zigzac shape, create curved in the direction to form a circle.

Step 3: Tie wire on the circle that amplify the circle in the middle.

Step 4: Using glue to paste the ends of the paper together.( to make cylindrical shape) and paste it on the first and the second circle
