Here's the tutorial how to assemble the Wowlab - Vulca lantern.
Make one, give one away
Have fun! And happy new year!
Wowlab Enschede, the Netherlands
when you are ready:
please make a picture of you and the lantern (or making the lantern ) and send it to wowlab, and put one on the vulca site
2 sets of wells and the bottom, 18 pins (included) (4 for the roof, 2 for the hanger, 8 for the sides, 4 for the bottom, I skipped four of eight holes, otherwise it would become to heavy for mailing) , a piece of string (about 25 cm), optionally a stapler, and a led candle (tea candle -size). optionally a stick to make it into a hand-held lantern
Here we go:
most important instruction: prefolding
prefold before you assemble, it makes the whole procedure easier and gives a better result.
start with the walls (2 sets)
zigzag prefold the roof
fold the tabs to the inside
start with the hanger, fold it and you may staple it. tie a string of about 25 cm (optional) through the hole. shorter or longer as you desire
connect one straight edges of the walls
connect one roof edge and holder (3 layers connected)
connect next roof edges, two layers (without hanger)
connect remaining roof edge with hanger (3 layers)
now close the other straight wall
connect the underside. the narrow sides point downward so you can reacht the holes easily
push a little led candle through the hole
hang it in a tree, or in a window sill. or use a stick and make a lantern from it
