To save time, I used the tutorial for the water lily lantern. Same construction process. 

1.Cut design pieces. ( I used double sided card stock and vellum paper)
2.Center and glue the rectangular lily silhouettes (4) to the coordinating rectangle solid lily shapes (4); centering them. Flip the lantern bodies over and glue the solid vellum pieces (4) to the opening in each of the lanterns bodies. Allow to dry.
3. Fold the score lines on the lantern bodies and the square lantern base. Curve the flower petals as you like. 
4. Glue the circular hanger piece to the top of each of the lantern bodies on the peak of the side that has the long side tab.
5. Center the two lantern body pieces. Apply glue to the backside of the right side tab on the left lantern body piece. Attach to the other lantern piece making sure that the bottoms align (joining the two body pieces). Allow to dry.
6. Image of the two lantern bodies glued together.
7. Flip the combined lantern body over ( pretty side up) and glue the combined lily mats to each of the openings on the lantern body; centering them. Allow to dry.
8. Flip the combined lantern body over and apply glue to the last long side tab. Secure the long tab to the other side of the lantern body creating a square box shape.
9. Image of the Lantern body glued together.
10.  Apply glue to one of the top tabs and secure it to the triangular panel to it’s left side.




11. Image of the tab secured to the panel. Repeat for the next tab.
12. Apply glue to the last two tabs and the circular hanger and secure to the inside of the lantern, creating a fully enclosed top. 
(I sometimes use a long object (pencil eraser end) to help secure the tabs on the inside of the lantern top base.)
13. Apply glue to the top two tabs of the Lantern square base and secure to the inside of the sides. Repeat for the bottom two tabs creating a shallow box.
14. Glue the two largest flower petals and two smallest flower petals together; centering them and alternating the petals.
15. Glue the last flower petal to the large petal set;centering and alternating the petals.
16. I used a adhesive jewel for the inside of the flower and attached it to the top of the lantern with a foam adhesive square.
17. Place a flameless candle inside and the lantern top in it’s base. I used a W 2.75” x H 4” color changing pillar flameless candle:).
