These paper lanterns are a quick and simple project and are perfect for paper lovers wanting to display their favourite prints and patterns.
Dailylike Collecting Paper Set – Between Snow to Flower
Double sided tape
Paper punch (I used a 2” round)
Ribbon/twine/fishing line to hang
Using your paper punch, cut out circles from your paper stack.
I used 4 different patterns and punched out 2 inch circles from 2 sheets of each pattern.
Using your double sided tape, stick your first circle to the lantern so it slightly overhangs the bottom.
Continue to tape down circles in a row around the lantern overlapping each time (overlap by about 1/3 of the circle).
When you have completed your first row, begin a second row above, overlapping the first row of circles by about 1/3 of the circle.
Continue rows, changing your paper prints as desired.
Once your lantern is complete hang with a piece of ribbon, twine or fishing line (I have used the Dailylike Cotton Ribbon Wreath design here).
