Snowflake or Mosaic Paper Lantern

This beautiful lantern can be used as a winter theme snowflake lantern or the rest of the year as a mosaic lantern. The delicate cut outs are transformed when an electric tea light is placed inside. This version is created in white, but imagine the transformation if done in color like stained glass.
