Here's my new printable Paper Lanterns banner in action! I spruced it up a bit with some tassels, and I think it turned out really fun. It's easy to do.
After you print and cut out the lanterns, you can easily string them together with a needle and string. I used embroidery floss, as I seem to have a ton of that around for some reason.
You can simple sew the floss right onto the lanterns using a needle poked through the marked holes.
Add tassels at the bottom by knotting several small lengths of floss and pulling them individually through from the back with a needle, or cut a small slit in the bottom of the lantern and pull several pieces through together.
A little bit of floss adds a whole new dimension to this cute banner. You can pick up the PDF (as well as the coordinating Lucky Cat and Kokeshi printables) at my shop: www.littledear.etsy.com Use them for your papercraft or scrapbooking projects or hang banners all over the house! It's a fun, easy way to brighten up any room. :)
