Just wanted to share a pic of my latest creation! There had been some interest in some of the groups recently about paper lanterns. Well, I can't resist a 3D challenge, so I set about trying to figure out how to construct one. Once I figured out the basic geometry of it, my DH helped to create a spreadsheet that will allow me to set the desired diameter, the thickness of the star, the number of points, etc. I know, I know...he has always insisted that there is a reason to remember what they teach in high school geometry...well, I guess it's true!
Here's a pic (excuse the quality, it's taken from the cell phone...) I'll try to get some others later!
I created a template on my KNK for this one and added some swirly design elements. I haven't added lights to the inside yet...I have to find those old jack-o-lantern led lights (hmmmm, where are those in the basement???).
