5. Cut small horizontal slits the width of ribbon approximately 1" up from bottom edge and 1" below top edge, making slits are lined up. Repeat on the opposite side of lantern.

Starting at the outside top edge of lantern, feed end of ribbon through slit to inside of lantern and down to bottom, then pull through bottom slit to outside of lantern. Pull ribbon down and wrap around underside of lantern, then feed through slit on opposite side and pull up through inside of lantern. Pull through the top slit to the outside of lantern and make sure ribbon is even on both sides, then cut to desired lengths and tie at the top.
