Paper Lantern Expander Insertion
The expander is easy to insert in the lantern, but one must be extra cautious when doing so. It is all too easy to rip the paper with these expanders if you are not careful. Your lantern will probably come flat, and it will revert back to this natural state if you do not insert an expander to force it open. First thing you must notice is that the hole at the top of your lantern is bigger than the hole at the bottom. So, insert the expander from the top, hook the grooves at the bottom to the edges of the hole at the bottom, and stretch the top of the lantern and snap it around the top of the lantern. The placement of the lanterns, once the expander is inserted, should be obvious.
