I am using these in my classroom. Instead of hanging them, I took off the shades of my small lamps and placed a paper lantern over each.
The result is beautiful! Students love the color that it gives my room! I'd like Easter ones now!

These ended up being too large to hang at the animal shelter so I set each one in a small bucket on top of the cat cages and added a pretty ribbon around the bucket. Then they looked like hot air balloons. People really liked them.
We did receive one with a broken frame, but was able to make it work and the paper is pretty fragile.
Also, the ones we received were a very pale color, not dark red, more pink, but it didn't really matter.
I hope we can use these again next year since they store nice and flat.

I purchased 2 of the jumbo lanterns and 2 sets of 3 little lanterns. one jumbo lantern came with a tear in it . I was able to fix it so it didn't show. I didn't have light fixture to put them over so I rigged up battery operated christmas lights inside of them . which worked well. Received many compliments on the decorations. With TLC they worked out good.

I used these as decorations for my sister valentine themed babyshower and they were a big hit. Everyone loved them. I only got one set and I wish I would have got one more. The quality was good and they were a great size. The price is awesome. I would recommend these you will not be disappointed.

Good Quality for the Money
I ordered these for a party and I'm very satisfied. They are well made and I will be albe to reuse them year after year. They were a little heavier to hang then I was expecting.

No lights came with it!
While the paper lanterns were very pretty and I had no problems putting them together, I was VERY disappointed because I thought there would be LIGHTS in a LANTERN. It's even lit up in the picture. If you just want a big round paper ball hanging in the air, buy it. If you want a lantern, don't.

was confused at first on how to assemble but my kids figured it out. I am glad for that bc these lanterns were the perfect addition to our party decorations. Very COOL
