Pretty paper lanterns--of course!

Happy Monday!
Wanted to share these pretty DIY paper lanterns I saw on this cute paper goods blog recently.  So pretty and simple, and a great use for the amazing scrapbook paper I always see at JoAnn's and never know what to do with.  Sometimes it's like 5 sheets for $1, so I buy some pretty ones that go with my current decor, but usually don't use them much.  Anyway, here's a perfect use if you're like me and don't scrapbook!
Girly ones and less girly ones--both types work!
There is a video tutorial on the Traveling Mama's post here--check it out and make some simple paper lanterns!
