DIY Chinese New Year decor: Ang Pow Carousel Lantern

Today we are going to make another Lantern out of Red Packets. I don’t know what to call this. Can’t find any auspicious name for it but since it looks like a carousel to me, we shall refer it as Ang Pow Carousel Lantern :D

Fold as shown above

Fold again as shown above. Looking like a slice of pizza now.. yum yum :P

Fold 16 red packets.

Staple 8 together to make TWO domes. Add a gold string on ONE and a tassle on the other.

Staple both domes together.

Fold a red packet as shown above. You’ll need 16 of those.
