Paper Punch-Out Lanterns are a new twist to the standard paper lantern. There are other ways to spice up paper lanterns, like this fun painted version. This paper punch-out version is still a kid-accessible craft, but this new look adds a touch of class and design. They would be great decorations for a party, kid’s room or outdoor BBQ.

2. Bunch designs along the slits or edge as desired.
3. Unfold lantern. Bring the two long ends together and staple in place.
4. Use a flameless tea light or candle to illuminate.
