Pokeball Lantern tutorial!

Anyone ever wanted to learn how to make really cool paper lanterns? Want an cool geeky way to decorate your room? Just procrastinating and want something fun and easy to distract yourself with? Well this is the project for you!  Today I will be teaching you to make a Pokeball lantern. Now this is a really quick little tutorial I did very long ago. It’s been on my deviant art since forever.  I just put my screen name over my real name. The reason I am using this and not a completely brand new one is because I can’t find the materials at the moment. Actually, this isn’t half bad. Even if you don’t like Pokemon, you can use what ever design you want. I just happen to really love Pokemon! Also, it’s a very cheap project with little effort for you lazy types like myself *hint hint* Don’t forget to show us your own work by linking yourselves in the comments and we’ll feature you in our Featured Fan Mail section. So let’s get down to business shall we? Helpful hint: Click on the image for a much larger size! Also, yes I know panel 5 is upside down, don’t remind me.
