Origami Tutorial: How to make a simple paper lantern
Finally, some origami stuff for my beloved visitors! In my previous post, I featured a simple lantern kirigami ( making a lantern papercraft ). So specially for this Chinese New Year season, I would like to present another tutorial on making a paper lantern, but this time it’s an origami. One thing about origami is you do not need any additional equipment such as knife or scissor. It is because origami is an art that only requires a little folding and creasing as such. A classic origami art shouldn’t be needing any cuttings on it.
Paper Lantern Origami Tutorial
Before you go on with the tutorial, prepare a square piece of paper. For this tutorial I use a white paper and pink color at its back. Ok, fold it and spread open like you see in diagram 1. Then follow the steps below.
Pretty simple right? Just remember to flip the paper each time after you’ve fold the paper. If you find this a little bit tricky, perhaps you should do it slower. Focus and perseverance are always few of the keys to success Peace!
I’ll be seeing you again sometime soon! Till then, Happy Chinese New Year!
