i surely was inspired but a lot of stuff for this one (french magazines, stuff made here)
i've made this recently, it's just requires silk paper and patience, i hope you'll find the idea interesting   Grin

it's about 70cm wide - just paper!

thanks again !!
i did stare it a lot after i made it  Roll Eyes
and i tried it in pink first, but i glued the petals in the wrong side of the lamp

oops !! Fire hazard  Undecided you're right !!!
i thought of it a bit and tried a wide japanese lamp - i looked for the english name  : "paper shade"
you can guess the original shape on the image above
the lamp is 27-31 inches wide + there's a low energy light bulb, so i keep my fingers crossed for it not to burn !!

Please if you feel inspired, post your own versions of this lamp i'd be happy !!!

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

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.
