video tutorial: paper star lantern

I've had numerous folks request a video of the Paper Star Lantern tutorial since still shots and written instructions are not always clear.  This is my first video attempt.  It took me thirteen minutes to make the video and three hours to figure out how to get it into the blog.  (A sad commentary on my technological savvy.)  Let me know if you think it's helpful.  And enjoy your lanterns!

  9. I'm soooo excited to do this... I'm an art teacher at a "harry potter' camp, and we love all things magical--- I'm planning on having the kids create watercolor paints the first day, painting the paper the second day, and then folding the paper into THESE on the third day, in preparation for the "transfiguration ball" on the last night! :) Thanks for the video, it REALLY helped. And I love your cats in the background--- I have one that sounds JUST LIKE THAT!!!! :)

    1. So glad you can use it for kids! We're Harry Potter fans over here too. (Ryan and I had our first date waiting in line to buy book 5 at midnight...is that embarrassing?) Glad the video was useful. Would love to see pics of your finished products!
