Flickering Origami Lantern Instructable

25 chinese lanterns... finished!

A few years ago, a friend wanted some origami lanterns for the centerpieces at her wedding reception, so I made some.  I was pretty pleased with how they turned out and they looked nice with the bamboo.

About a year ago, I revisited the design and came up with an addition: LIGHT!  (lanterns with light. Revolutionary, I know)  Finally it came time to create an instructable for the project, and here it is.  It even got featured!  Woohoo!

I’ve entered it in the Instructables Papercraft Contest, so make sure to go vote for it (assuming you like it, of course.  no obligation if you hate it or are lazy).  The deadline for voting is Thursday (March 27th) at midnight.

Oh, and if you make one, please let me know!  I’d love to see pictures of the variations people come up with.
