Deborah at Pookashop suggested making craft kits from my paper lanterns. What an excellent idea. The hardest part was writing the instructions which aren’t likely to be earning any literary prizes. The kits are available from Pookashop in Cardigan, Wales.
At the moment, I’m not selliing these on-line. The kit includes the LED tea light which is too large to be posted as a large letter and so would cost £3.30 as a small parcel. Too expensive, I think, for a £5 lantern. I’m reluctant to leave out the LED tea light as I’m concerned people would use an ordinary wax candle tea light and then complain the lantern caught fire. The tea lights are cheap if you buy 10, not often offered singly.
I’m in the process of making a “How To” video showing how to make the lantern. I hope to finish that tomorrow afternoon. Most of the video is done, the voice over remains to be recorded.
