Paper Lantern Instruction
元宵节纸灯笼制作说明

1.

1.

Print the Year of the Tiger paper lantern design. You will need to use double-sided printing for this. It is recommended that you print the tiger lantern template using your printer's black and white setting on red, yellow, green, or blue paper, as white is traditionally thought of as unlucky.

请双面打印设计好的虎年纸灯笼设计图样。

2.

Start by writing your name on the design, then cut the strip on the short edge of the right-hand side of the paper (follow the cut marks). This will become the handle of the lantern. Set that aside.

首先在灯笼图样正面 “姓名” 处写下您的名字,然后在右侧的短边上剪下条带(按照剪刀的标记)。这将成为灯笼的把手,请先把它放在旁边备用。

3.

Fold the remaining paper in half lengthwise with the tiger picture on the inside. You should see the dotted lines on both sides. Cut along the dotted lines from the folded edge to the open edge. Be careful not to cut all the way to the edge. The strips should stay connected.

将剩余的纸张纵向对折,内侧有老虎图案。您应该看到两面的虚线。请沿着从折叠边缘到开口边缘的虚线剪开。请注意不要一直剪到图纸边缘,条带应该保持连接。

4.

Open (unfold) the paper so that the tiger picture is on the outside again.

打开(展开)纸,让老虎图案再次出现在外面。

5.

Wrap the paper into a circular tube shape with the cuts going up and down. Attach the long ends of the sheet together with tape or staples. It should look like a tall, narrow cylinder now.

将纸卷成圆形管状(老虎图案在外面),剪开的纸条带应该是上下方向。 用胶带或订书钉将纸的长端固定在一起(您也可以使用固体胶)。它现在应该看起来像一个又高又窄的圆柱体。

6.

Roll up a sheet of colored paper horizontally to create another cylinder and put it in the middle of the lantern. Adjust the shape of the lantern at will, and then tape or staple the lantern to the colored paper. You can make it tall and skinny or short and round.

将一张彩色纸横向卷起,形成另一个圆柱体,放在灯笼中间。请随意调整您喜欢的灯笼形状,您可以把灯笼变得又高又瘦或又短又圆,然后将灯笼用胶带或订书机固定在彩纸上。

7.

Tape or staple the handle that you cut out in Step 1 to the top of the lantern and freely decorate your lantern (optional) however you want.

将您在步骤 1 中剪下的纸条提手用胶带或订书机固定在灯笼的顶部,然后再根据自己的喜好随意装饰您的灯笼(自由选择)。

8.

All done. Great job! Post a picture of your lantern on Instagram and tag @ShoreLakeArts and @ShorelineWaGov.
