Chinese New Year Lanterns ~Bostik Challenge

This month together with all the Christmas festivities my crafting buddy Little M and I have had lots of fun with the Bostik Box that is themed Chinese New year. Last weekend we made a lovely calendar and this week she came to visit and me have made some really petty Chinese New Year Lanterns.

Later on if time permits we are also going to make some fortune cookies and then go out for a Chinese Lunch. Now that Little M knows more about the Chinese culture she is really excited for the lunch.
In the mean time I am sharing a video of how we made the Chinese Lanterns.

To make the Chinese Lanterns you will need:
Equipment Needed:

A4 Red Paper
A4 Gold Paper
Gold pen
Scissors, Pencil, Ruler
Bostik Glue
Bostik Glue Dots

Please watch this video to see how we made them:
