You will need the following items:
* Red packets (empty of course!!)
* Strips of paper (I recycled from red packets as well)
Hold both ends of the red packets together and staple one side of the strip to make the lantern handle.
Repeat the same process for the other end of the strip/handle.
You will also need to staple the bottom of the lantern.
You can use your hands to press down the lantern from top, kinda like make it fatter or to expand it a bit.
The end results:
Happy Chinese New Year to all my bloggy friends! Gong Hei Fatt Choy! :D
