Happy New Year -Chinese New Year- Paper Lantern

Happy New Year! – Chinese New Year began on February 14th and it’s the year of the tiger! I created this paper lantern for the GSP DT.Super easy and a lot of fun to make......I am sure a lot of you remember these as a school craft........I remembered..... There are a number of how-to videos on the Internet, including this one (although it's not very thorough) using recycled red envelopes (aka red packets) used to give gifts during Chinese New Year and a stapler! . This video by Dawn is easier to follow and more like the lanterns we made in school: This was as simple as using an xacto knife and cutting strips into the paper leaving a trim on the top and bottom.....then I decorated it....Super simple .....and Super cool.....Try it.....
