How to Cut Paper Lanterns
You probably made these yourself when you went to school. And they're still just as much fun to make. They're good for all ages. Even the youngest can make them with just a little help. The only materials needed are colored construction paper, paste or staples, and crayons or paints if color is added.
To get the most from a sheet of paper, divide it into three even parts crosswise. A good size is 9 by 12 inches. This gives three strips of paper 9 by 4 inches each, which make the main part of three lanterns. Cut strips for the handles from another sheet. To make the lantern, fold the strip in half lengthwise. Make cuts in from the fold about 1 1/2 inches deep, cutting the strips rather narrow, as though cutting fringe. Leave at least 1/2 inch at each end. See Figure a. Do any coloring now, before pasting the lantern together. Colored borders on the top and bottom are attractive. Now paste the edges of the lantern together. A stapler will make a good closing. Cut a strip of paper about 6 inches long and 1/2 inch wide for the handle. Paste or staple this in place, and the lantern will be like the one shown in Figure b. Of course these lanterns can be made any size. They are fun to make and are effective table decorations for a party. Small lanterns can be hung on a Christmas tree.
These paper pom-poms make lovely decorations for a Christmas, tree or for a party. You can make them in all colors, large or small. Made extra-large out of silver or gold paper, and placed in the center of a party table, they make a gorgeous decoration. These pom-poms may also be used for trimming a clown costume, for sewing to the toes of dancing slippers, or for dangling on the end of a cap. Here's how you make a paper pom-pom: Turn a cup upside down on a piece of paper. Now run your pencil around it. Draw sixteen circles in this way, and cut them out. Fold each of the sixteen circles of paper in half, as shown in Picture Two. Then fold the doubled-over paper in half once more, making it four-ply, as shown in Picture Three. Now fold the four-ply paper over once again, making it eight-ply, as shown in Picture Four. Picture Three Picture Four Then take needle and thread. Double the thread for strength. String the sixteen folded circles on to it in the following way: Push the point of the needle through each folded circle in the tip of the cone, as shown in Picture Five. Be sure that the needle goes through all the layers. String the layers together tightly. Make a nice big knot so that they can't get loose. Now open out all of the layers. Spread them open like the petals of a flower. You will have a full, crisp, beautiful pom-pom to use in any way you choose.
