Paper lanterns

Paper lanterns we found while were we in japan town.

Which inspired us to buy a piece of handmade paper when we were in an Origami store there , filled with so many different papers and colors and textures..
We decided on this thick paper that had flowers pressed in it, since were were wanting to replace a lampshade that was on one of our lamps in the living room... this is the new shade with our flower paper.
The old shade was purple white gray and black striped and had this sort of alien glow in the room, so I'm so glad to have something much more mellow and so pretty :)


  1. I love paper lanterns! I really like that you used the paper for your lampshade. Turned out great.


  2. Fun way to jazz up a lamp!
