How to expand your Paper Hanging Lantern:

1. Expand the lantern being careful not to split the paper
2. Insert the expander through the top of the lantern
3. Gently press the expander and insert into the eyelets in top of lantern. Care must be taken not to damage the paper
4. If using a cord and light bulb place the cord though the middle of the lantern. The bulb must be positioned in the centre of the paper lantern (minimum 1.5" from the edge and 6.5" from ceiling). Do not allow the bulb to touch the paper lantern. When using a light bulb be careful to use the correct wattage for the size of shade (see table below).
5. If using LED lights (we have perfect Warm LED Lantern lights available) hang the LED through the centre of the lantern using the hook in the top.
6. DO NOT use with tea lights, candles or any naked flame.
