Decoupage Paper Lanterns

I saw this tutorial on customizing paper lanterns and I liked the idea of using mod podge to add something to the lantern. I had been on the lookout for good material and I found some great vintage material at the flea market.

I picked a material that had negative space so that it would be easy to cut out shapes, and then put mod podge on the back and attached it to the lantern and covered over the top of it with more mod podge then hung it and let it dry. It took a long time to dry, I ended up leaving it to dry overnight.
