How To: Make a lantern from folded paper

Make a lantern from folded paper

YouTube contributor, Sommerwetter, demonstrates how to make a paper lantern (also known as a luminaria or farolito) using only scissors, a glue stick and a standard sheet of paper (and a candle or the recommended tea light, of course.) Multiple symmetrical folds in origami-like construction and some well-placed slices in the paper create decorative cube or accordion style lantern. She notes that the process is very easy but you must follow it exactly. The author notes that the last several seconds of the paper lantern construction demonstration are missing, but the assembly of the lantern is complete. The last decision to make is what candle to place in the lantern. The contributor recommends a tea light for safety.
