I made some beautiful ball lanterns and many have requested for me to share the steps here.
Red Packet Ball Lantern
Gold Packet Ball Lantern
I found it very difficult to explain it with pictures but I found this video instead. Let’s watch this video and I’m sure you’ll be able to make your very own beautiful ball lantern using red packets 😀
A friend of mine requested me to make it round, like a ball without those spikes. What you need to do is just follow the steps shown in the video, and after you are done, just fold the spikes and staple them.
Staple as shown above. Your lantern will turn out lovely 😀
