I kept the leftover paper used in the Vintage Secret Treasure Box to create a Vintage Paper Hanging Lantern.
What you need:
Stapler ** Staples ** Vintage Paper (from a vintage book) ** Ribbon/Wool/String
1. Fold paper back and forth to make a fan / 2. Fold in half
3. Pinch middle and staple or tape / 4. Repeat until you have three and arrange in a circle
5. Staple or tape to complete the circle / 6. Tread the circle on a piece of string or wool
7. Repeat above steps until you have a lantern. Hang.
A heap of these lanters would be perfect for a vintage style children’s party or wedding.
Craft suitable for children aged 6 and up.
