In regards to today’s freebie: What can I say except you’re welcome? The newest addition to my Disney Paper Lantern Collection is here! The perfect thing for your islander party or gift for the person in your house who won’t stop belting out “If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me. One day I’ll know, if I go there’s just no telling how far I’ll go…” Set sail with this awesome Moana paper lantern.
Moana was one of the first movies we took our three-year old to see in the theater. I was surprised how much he enjoyed it! He seemed to follow the story pretty well, and enjoyed the singing. He thought the scene with the crab was a little scary, though.
Like always, it was difficult to decide exactly what I wanted to depict in this design. Since this movie is all about adventure and exploration, I wanted to make sure to feature Moana on her boat (with her trusty side-kicks, of course). I also thought it would be fun to include some stylized shapes on the top to mimic Maui’s tattoos.
To learn how to assemble my paper lanterns, see this tutorial.
Like most all my paper lanterns, removing the final design from your cutting mat is as much of an art as the cut itself, so be sure to go slowly.
Have fun putting this super cool Moana paper lantern together! Young or old, it’s sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face.
