Red Packet Ball Lantern

I made some beautiful ball lanterns and many have requested for me to share the steps here.

I found it very difficult to explain it with pictures but I found this video instead. Let’s watch this video and I’m sure you’ll be able to make your very own beautiful ball lantern using red packets :D
If you want to make it round, like a ball without those spikes. What you need to do is just follow the steps shown in the video, and after you are done, just fold the spikes and staple them.
