How to Make Geometric Paper Luminary Lanterns

These paper luminary lanterns look like they’re glowing! That makes them a great choice to use anywhere you want to set the mood with soft lighting. Because they’re not dependent on electricity, they work just as well outside as they do inside. They’re even great for camping!

You will need to use translucent paper so the light can shine through

Supplies needed:

  • Translucent paper
  • Template 
  • Ruler
  • Bone folder
  • Double sided tape
  • Scissors
  • LED lights

The template can be downloaded online from Martha Stewart. Scale the template up or down in size to make lanterns of different sizes.

Here is the tutorial video.
