Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cookiedough7123 Do yourself a favor and don't buy this
These things are literally the worst. I have a box of them sitting in my office from last year and not sure what I am going to do with them. Glue doesn't work you have to use staples, and it is horribly frustrating because the thing is so small! no kid could do this, I made a few myself and that was it, and even then they came apart and the staples looked tacky.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by prairiegirl No one could make these
With the stiff paper and small parts, these lanterns could not be made even by a talented adult. Gluing them together would be next to impossible. I do not think any company should be selling kits that have not been made in-house before being put on the market. This truly is not a kit that can be assembled. I have received many creative and quality products from Oriental Trading but this is not one of them.

Whoa. These are not user-friendly, even for adults. It was very frustrating trying to put these together.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by artcrafter good design/craft for Chinese New Year, $0.5 each ?!
1. Yes, as some previous reviews wrote, the glue won't work
on this craft, because the tension of the paper is stronger
than the glue, the glue can't hole it --- but there's solution:
- stapler (one staples on each side, it doesn't look good
if you use too many staples)
- tape (to hold the golden rim while the glue is drying)
2. We can't expect the kids, even they are 7 graders, can
figure out the best way to make it --- it is our responsibility
to try/do it in advance and teach them.
3. Aside from a good Chinese New Year craft, it also shows/
teaches the kids about art/design.

These were beautiful once they were put together. However, we ended up not using them because they kept coming apart.
