How to make the lantern suncatcher
Cut out the lantern template using scissors and/or a craft knife. You will also need to cut out the three inner panels of the lantern.
Place the lantern face-down onto a piece of sticky-backed plastic / contact paper.
(Tip:use sticky tape to fasten the sticky-backed plastic / contact paper to your table to hold it still while you put the lantern in place.)
Use pieces of cellophane or tissue paper to fill the three panels of the lantern.
Keep going until all the windows of the lantern are filled. Then place a second sheet of sticky-backed plastic / contact paper over the lantern to sandwich-in all the pieces of cellophane/tissue paper.
Trim around the outside of the lantern to cut off any excess sticky-backed plastic / contact paper.
Hang up your lantern in the window so the cellophane / tissue paper is lit up by the sunshine.
You might like to make several and hang them as a garland to make a string of lanterns.
