Cut across the paper (have a look at the photos) almost but not quite to the end.

Repeat from the other direction.

Continue until the whole length has cuts.
Very carefully unfold the circle and tease down the sections created by cutting.

You need to be gentle not to break the lantern as you unfold


If you want to hang it up, attach a piece of thread to the top. You could make lots of these in different sizes and colours and string across a room for an unusual decoration.
