Chinese lanterns....



CNY003

I am so excited about this design :) as I have never made a Chinese lantern before...how cool! Another fun project :).

Raising the red lantern is a tradition that began in China back in the 1600's during the Qing Dynasty. Chinese red lanterns are a symbol of happiness and good luck.
These traditional Chinese paper lanterns are used on the fifteenth day of the Chinese New Year for the Lantern Festival, are bright, colorful, and in many different sizes and shapes, but mostly they will be red in color.
