I don't know how much of a fire hazzard it would be... I have a paper lantern as well and you're supposed to use a certain watage of bulb and it's suspended in the center...

The pink one you might be able to flip... because on mine I can take the center out.. when you get them they come flat... so you might be able to "fix" it so it goes the "right" way.

It looks like you used tissue paper as well for them... I"m not sure what silk paper is... but that's what it looks like to me.. at least on the pink one. I still think they are really cool  Grin

When I first saw the photo, it looked like somebody carved a hole in the wall and it was glowing.  Grin But it looks absolutely amazing. I love it!  Shocked

thanks again everybody, i'm really happy that you like it!!

And jellobird, let us see the result when you're done with your lantern Wink
coool !

ok and now is the time for confession : i cheated !!
i actually didn't glued the triangles one after the other... Roll Eyes
i made rows of triangles, which is easier and faster to glue
i folded like 10 strips of silktissue paper together, accordion-like, cut it, so the triangle shapes are not the same exact shape...
(wow, does that sentence mean anything ? it's clear to me but i hope it's clear to you too....)
a pic would explain better than me :

and : i cant flip the pink one cos the openings are of a different width so the metal holder won't fit the other way round... i'll stick to the flower blossoming version  Wink

What a lovely idea.  At first look, I thought they were feathers.

Oh, I love this! Reminds me a lot of Tord Boontje's stuff.

I will have to try this some time.

If it were me, I would use a a LED bulb (have you guys seen those.... they look like a bulb but have about a hundred little led lights attached to it) It runs cool, uses less energy, and lasts longer. You can also get the bulbs in all colors!

I also made one like this, as a present for my sister. This picture is obviously not the finished lamp, my sister hasn't got around putting it up yet.
