Happy Maniac Monday Jaderbugs! It’s a good ole Monday and I am super excited to share this craft with you. The first time I saw it, it reminded me of fish scales. I guess because it sorta has that texture to it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE texture. I still can’t believe all of the things you can do with a lil tissue paper. I mean, it’s not JUST for stuffing a bag with! It’s truly amazing!
Tools And Materials
Tissue-paper disks in assorted colors
14-, 16-, or 18-inch-diameter paper lanterns
I used the Martha Stewart Large Circle Cutter.
This is what your circles should look like! OR you can get Tissue-paper circles, 5 inches, in Pastel and Primary, $6 for 480; hyglossproducts.com. This might make your life easier!
Take your double stick tape and place a little piece on your lantern. Wire-frame spherical paper lanterns, from $3.25 each; pearlriver.com.
Starting at the bottom of the lantern, use small squares of tape to begin attaching tissue-paper disks around the hole, overlapping them. Working toward the top, continue sticking and overlapping disks to cover the lantern.
