How to fold origami lights

Step 1: With your origami paper right side up, fold the paper horizontally, open it up and then fold it vertically. Open the paper and flip it over so the wrong side is facing you. Fold your paper diagonally in both directions, matching corner to corner.

 

Step 2: With the right side of the paper facing you, push in the sides to meet and crease to form a triangle.

 

Step 3: Fold the bottom corners up to meet at the top center on both sides.

 

Step 4: Fold the side corners in to meet in the center. Fold the top corners down to meet the folded side corners. Insert the folded top corners between the two folds of paper of the folded side corners. Repeat this step on the other side.

 

Step 5: Hold your folded shape gently and blow into the small hole at the base to inflate it!

 

Step 6: Twist the wire of the lights to form a peak around each light. Insert the lights into the small hole at the base of the paper balloon.

  • Do not leave lights unattended
  • Only use LED lights for this project as they will not overheat the paper
  • Use a straw to inflate the paper balloon
