Lanterns filled with votives or LEDs are so beautiful at night. The dark paper mâché figure to the left is a castoff I found at the thrift store. This folded paper lantern is a beginning to my lantern hunt. I want to make a large sample with foam board. I'm using Helen Hiebert's "Paper Illuminated" to work my way through lantern ideas. I would like to make some of these out of more durable material to hang outside, candle boats in the trees.
