I've seen some window store's inspiration pictures from Anthropologie that I HAVE to show you all, there are so cute and inspiring...
Now lets get close for just a lil bit, this is what I call "texture paper heaven"
Ok, lets go back to where I wanted to take you, this next picture! OMG! the first time I saw it, that cute little thing blow my mind, I soo wanted something like that at our wedding, I like this idea so much better than the paper balls laterns now :) - Yes! that's the way I am, fell in love each time I found another idea, I just hope I'm not hurting paper ball latern's feelings :(
I'm loving that lamp! So I had to give it a try and find a way to do my own ( and replace my paper balloon lamp idea for this one)
I draw a little sketch of how you have to fold your paper. In order to make it stay in the number 3 shape a put a tiny piece of double tape in the middle and another one at the end.
This is NOT how the finished lamp is going to look, this is 1/3 of the total cones the real lamp needs. (around 150 doing some math after this trial) With more cones the lamp could be a lot more dense and soft, besides I think my cones were too large.
I made this one with some printed on one side paper, I was saving for recycling. I run out of it, that's why I didn't have the actual number to make the trial lamp, but I'm saving again...
I know it doesn't look very cute, but it's juts the start =)
Have you found yourself drooling over lamps? want to share them?
