Start with a square piece of paper, I used 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 for these lights.
Again on the opposite diagonal.
And again, in half. You should have folded 4 times.
Pinch the flat edges together to form this point. If you can’t form it, try flipping the paper over.

Your piece should now look like this.
Then fold all of the corners up to the middle.
Then fold the edges into the middle, all four sides.
Then take the four loose ends + tuck them into the pockets.
One end should have a little hole.
Blow air into that hole, inflating your lantern.
Using the hole, attach the lanterns to the string of lights.
