Secret Ancient Chinese Lantern DIY

Standard

Okay, I have a confession to make.  This DIY is neither secret nor is it ancient. However, it was done by a couple of part Chinese girls (one being moi and the other, my cousin Jenny) so that has gotta count for something!

This project is in honor of Chinese New Year which happens to be this Friday.  GUNG HEE FAT CHOY!!  These aren’t your typical Chinese red lanterns though, we have constructed a slightly different version out of empty Bob Chinn’s World Famous Mai Tai Tetra Pak containers.  Let’s get started! First, rinse out an empty Tetra Pak with warm water, pull out the side tabs on both the top on bottom and flatten.

Then, cut off the top and bottom of the Tetra Pak
