How to Make a Kirigami Chinese Lantern
On behalf of TVLesson.com, my name is Sherie Tengbergen. I'm a professional artist with the WatercolorGourmet.com. In this clip I'm going to show you how to make a Kirigami Chinese lantern. You're going to begin by taking a piece of red paper and you're going to fold it in half like this leaving just about the width of a ruler at the top like I've done here. And what we’re going to do with that is we’re going to be creating the handle that you see on this lantern.
So I'm going to take my scissors. I'm going to go ahead and I'm going to quickly cut that out. You could also cut this with the paper cutter if you have one handy. That’s going to form our handle. Now what I did is I took my ruler and I made a line across the top of my paper and that’s where I'm going to have to stop my cuts so that I don’t cut all the way through my lantern.
Then I laid my ruler and I quickly made lines all the way down the paper for the slits that you see here. I'm going to take my scissors and I'm going to go ahead and cut just right up to that line real quickly. You’ll now set the last width of your ruler, it doesn’t quite fit on the paper and that’s okay because we have to overlap that one and glue our lantern together. So that’s no problem.
I'm then cutting now and I'm going to go ahead and open this up. And I'm going to put some glue on the end of my lantern with the glue stick. And I'm going to go ahead and roll this around and press it down into place. And the last thing I have to do is add the handle by putting just a little bit of glue on both ends. And then sticking this inside of my lantern, I have a handle so that I can actually carry this paper lantern around with me. And there you have a Kirigami Chinese lantern.
On behalf of TVLesson.com, this is Sherie Tengbergen and thank you for watching.
