DIY lamp / lantern made from paper plates

You showed me with lots of photos and your feedback that lanterns are not only great at St. Martin’s, but can also be used as decorative lights or night lights for children’s rooms. That’s why I made a new lamp here, namely a lion with a cute lion cub that you can even take out 😉 If you want the lamp for the baby’s room or as a gift for a birth, then you can also put cute stars with the name and birth dates of the child Attach babies. There is another ready-made print template for you in two different plate sizes, which you can find in the material list.
