I made this lantern with my mum - it was lots of fun and quite easy.  Just remember to make the cut lines long enough and add a handle.  I'm taking mine to school to show my friends.  Please post other ideas as I love making things.

My brother and I loved making the red Chinese lantern.  We have learnt how to say Happy new year in Chinese: Kiung Hi Fat Chhoi, which loosely translates to "Congratulations and be prosperous".
It's fun learning different languages!
