Ball Lantern

Merryn taught us how to make a ball lantern. I was eager to give it a try. So when I came back after work at 10pm, I quickly took my shower and started on this special handicraft.

I got ready 4 stacks of Chinese New Year packets.
30 altogether



Started folded them into diamond shape.



Then I stapled the packets and here's the outcome.



Here, I got stuck. It became something else instead of a rounded ball lantern. :)




Well, it's late. I will try again soon..

Thanks, Merryn.
