Miniature Christmas Parols (Filipino Christmas Lantern)
Christmas is 27 days away. I am making my old time favorite miniature paper parols. My version of the parol is made out of paper. Using different pieces like punched daisy flowers, circles, stars, tissue paper all put together with glue and glue gun. Traditionally the parols are larger and have star shaped with bamboo frame sticks covered with colored Japanese paper or crepe paper and the most common form is a five-pointed star with two decorative "tails" made of tissue papers. Nowadays there are few more types of the parols made with capiz and with lights.
