PAPER PUNCH-OUT LANTERNS

Paper Punch-Out Lanterns are a new twist to the standard paper lantern.

There are other ways to spice up paper lanterns, like this fun painted version. This paper punch-out version is still a kid-accessible craft, but this new look adds a touch of class and design. They would be great decorations for a party, kid’s room or outdoor BBQ.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING PAPER PUNCH-OUT LANTERNS

1.Fold paper length-wise. Cut slits along folded edge until about an inch away from the edge. Make sure the width of the slit is larger than the size of your mini-paper punches.

2.Bunch designs along the slits or edge as desired.

3.Unfold lantern. Bring the two long ends together and staple in place.

4.Use a flameless tea light or candle to illuminate.
