How to make paper lantern - Happy Diwali

This was the project my kid did on Diwali . It came up very well and he was very happy to see it hanging in our frontyard . I thought of sharing this with everybody..Below are the instructions and video..
1 : Attach two end of the paper (at the Longer ends) and then roll the paper into a cylinder (at the Longer ends) and glue it.
2 : Take another paper fold it in half lengthwise.
3 : Cut strips in toward the folded flap. Space the cuts about 1/2 inch to 1 inch apart. Spacing is to your preference. To make cuts even, you may want to mark your cuts first. Leave about 1 inch of a margin (this is where you will glue your lantern).
4 : Glue both ends of this paper and stick it to the cylinder from top to bottom.. Repeat this procedure for more..
5 : Take another paper and cut it length wise about 1 inch width. This will be used as a tail for the lantern.. Glue them at the end of the cylinder
