Origami Lantern (8-Pointed Basket)

Here’s an 8-pointed star basket for all your goodies (small office supplies, jewelry, Easter egg, candies, etc.)! I used a 7″ square, which holds an egg perfectly. It even fits a votive candle, but I wouldn’t recommend it unless you’re using wax paper. You know, just so we don’t start any fires. 😉 Truthfully, it’s just a plain ole basket and can hold anything you want it to. 😀

Personally, I am going to use my star basket to store my new jewelry! You see, I have just purchased a lovely new matching set of earrings and a necklace from Macy’s in the sale. I love buying new jewelry, but it is no secret that jewelry can be expensive! With this in mind, I actually got to use a promo code on my jewelry. I was so surprised by how much money I saved! I might even put the money that I saved towards buying some more jewelry the next time I go to Macy’s.

I suppose what I am trying to say is that if you are planning on buying any jewelry from Macy’s anytime soon, I would strongly recommend doing some research online first to see if there are any promo codes that you can use to save some money! You never know how much money you might be able to save! Not sure where to begin? Just take a look at the Raise website here: https://www.raise.com/coupons/macys.

Anyway, enough about my jewerly buying habits for now! Below is a photo of this lantern used as an Easter egg holder:
