How To: Make a DIY Folded Paper Star Lantern!

created at: 03/05/2012

First that outdoor deck/daybed makeover and now these outdoor star lanterns… I think it’s safe to say we’re itching for warmer weather!  While sunshine and blue skies are still a few weeks (or months) off, that doesn’t mean we can’t start perfecting our paper-folding skills.  I, for one, am definitely going to try my hand at these paper star lanterns!

Dionne from Passengers on a Little Spaceship has created a wonderful tutorial that includes everything you need to know to start folding your own lanterns.  All you need is the following:

  • a 12″ square piece of paper (scrapbook paper would work great!)
  • scissors
  • bone folder (optional, though it will help to create crisp folds)
  • a battery-operated tea light (for safety!)

Head over to Passengers on a Little Spaceship for the photo tutorial!  Dionne has also created a video tutorial if that’s more your style.

Happy paper folding!
