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!

i don't know the exact name but this was a big japanese paper lantern you can buy in most shops for up to 7.
(mine costed 5 euros)

as i said, the rest is so simple : glue silk paper triangles (or different shapes) and that's it!
thanks for the comments by the way !!  Grin

Pretty!  Kudos on your taste as well as your patience!  I could see this working with lots of shapes - light green leaves, pink flower-petal shapes ...

this is beautiful! If I had it in my house I think I would stare at it allllll day!  soooo what about a fire hazard?  could it go up in a ball of flames? and how long did it take you to make it...is it on a wire frame?  nice job! really pretty

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 !!!

LOL!  I don't think I would worry about a fire ball if you have a low energy bulb(those burn cool, most of the time) PLUS it looks like you glued the "feathers" to the paper japanese ball?  nope...no flame there! LOLOL your funny..I love the pink!

This is neat!

and i tried it in pink first, but i glued the petals in the wrong side of the lamp

You might be able to use the pink one still. I have several paper lanterns hung in my house that when I got, I had to put together myself.  If you are really careful about it, you might be able to extract the wire frame that holds the lantern open, and then flip it over so that the whole things hangs in the opposite direction making your petals hang correct.  Just a thought Smiley
