Easy Paper Lanterns

Today's Craft: Easy Paper Lanterns
Craft Project Directions: To make this craft project you will need colorful construction paper, scissors, a stapler, and markers. To begin take a piece of paper and fold it in half. Now hold the paper so the fold is facing you. Next take your scissors and make vertical cuts all along the fold leaving an inch at either end and about 1/2 inch between cuts. Next unfold the paper and bend into a roll lengthwise and staple the top edge together and the bottom edge together to create your paper lantern. Next take another piece of construction and cut a paper strip to staple to the top of your lantern as a holder. Decorate more with markers if you wish.
Enjoy Crafting! & Happy Chinese New Year!
