Self-made lanterns

Each year, the boss would buy paper lanterns to hang at the entrance. But this year he didn't seem to buy any so I decided to make my very own lanterns. It was two days ago. 

The first day, I made three lanterns out of the Pop drinks box. I cut it into 3 parts and started creating free-handedly. When I told my people that I was going to make some lanterns out of the box, they didn't believe me.

Finally, I showed then the outcome and they were like 'aik?'
So I hanged the 3 lanterns at the entrance.

On the second day, that was yesterday, I made another two lanterns 
out of the Friso box which was given by my customer. 
So I hanged them together with the others.

When I went back to the shop after my dinner, I realised that my lanterns were missing and six new paper lanterns have replaced them.

Ah well, the boss must have thought that my lanterns were not colorful enough. That prompted him to buy those new paper lanterns. Otherwise, he was still delaying. Only a few days left before the Mooncake Festival is here!

So have you played with the candles? If you did, I hope that you have taken a photo of it and post it at Chang Jiang.

  1. Dear Wenn,

    I think the lanterns you made from boxes are very nice. Good that you went green and do recycling.

    Can't seem to find any candles at home so did not play with any.:(

    Good night. Sweet dreams.

  6. Wow! A great idea on recycling but maybe your boss thought it will be better to use a real lantern.

  10. Good afternoon there! These lanterns are cheap and nice, very environmental friendly.
    There's a recycle lanterns contest here in Taiping Sentral, I've seen many DIY lanterns ;)

  11. How dare your boss buy new lanterns to replace yours? You should hang your lanterns around his car. Muahahahaha

  12. Maybe your boss was worried that you will keep making the tin lanterns and they might cut your jari.
