How to Make a Paper Lantern Bracelet

paper lantern rainbow loomOne of the challenges of coming up with new Rainbow Loom bracelets is naming them! Sometimes it will take a few days before we decide on a name that we like. After we decide on what to call a bracelet, we search online to make sure someone hasn’t already used the name.

We named this bracelet, designed by our Aunt Susan, the Paper Lantern Rainbow Loom bracelet because it reminds us of the Japanese paper lanterns we used to make in kindergarten.

      hey Bethany,
      All you need to do is take the hook and twist it, so the smooth part is against the capping band, and pull it back. I grab it with one of my fingers and then pull the other two bands to where they came from
      🙂 respond if you have any questions, I’m happy to help!
