Edit:   http://infusedgoods.blogspot.com/2008/04/folding-paper-lantern-tutorial.html
Click on the word "here"  that takes you to div share click on download this file, it may take about a minute.   Have fun.

I made these out of tissue paper, wood craft sticks, L.E.D. tea lights, glue, thread and embroidery floss.  I made two different sets with different color schemes. 

The first picture is blues and greens but with the lights they seem to change to all blues or all greens.

So the things I bought at the dollar store where:

Wood craft sticks - 2 packs $2
Tissue paper - 1 pack  $1
Led color changing lights - 5 = $5
Total = $8


green and blue lanterns with lights on


again the green and blue lanterns with lights


green and blue with L.E.D. lights off


the pink and red ones with out lights (I could not afford lights for both but I can move the lights around) I like how these match our living room...


closer of the pink and red ones


these are supplies I bought from the dollar tree (this is before I went back for more lights and craft sticks)


a pic in progress


a lantern folded
