page is for those who want the instruction to fold a simple origami lantern.
This simple origami lantern is a 2D model butt is a little advanced than the the traditional origami lantern. Unlike the traditional origami lantern, you can hang this lantern since the front and the back sides are the same. This model starts from a balloon base and you will be applying both inside reverse-fold and outside reverse-fold.
Before working on this model, you need to know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are. If you know these two folding techniques, then you will have no problem in making origami lantern.
If you are ready, then let's get started.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the
origami lantern. It is a little easier if the front and the back side of the paper are
slightly different whether it be in texture or color.
Make sure the paper
that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles
equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is a typical 15cm x 15cm origami paper.
This is the front side of paper.
This is the back side of paper.
