Hello friends! We've emerged from our turkey-induced haze with so much to talk about!
This weekend we asked some friends to submit ideas for their Loomi lights via YouTube, and The-Amazing-Lauren put together a quick blurb about how she made her pattern paper lantern! Check it out below, we hope these inspire you as much as they did us.
And due to popular demand, we've added a new $45 reward level that INCLUDES an electrical fixture. It's limited to 25 units, so get yours while they last.
If you have an idea for Loomi, let us know! We'd love to see and hear your ideas! Just post a comment (right here) or submit a video on our Facebook page.

Lauren's Paper Pattern Loomi Lantern (say it three times fast!):
I made this Loomi by covering it with pattern paper. I found a
horrendous old sewing pattern that no one would want to use anymore
and glued each of the quadrilaterals to the most interesting spaces on
a sheet. I just used a glue stick because it was the most manageable,
but you could experiment with wrinkling the paper over a more liquid
glue. You have to be a little anal about making sure the all the edges
are really stuck down, but then cutting it out is a snap. I kept it
simple this time around, but you could repeat and cover both sides to
play with the transparency and the area that shows through the
openings where the pieces curve outwards. Then assemble and VOILA!
