They are really different looking and provide a different look then the typical lantern. They do dimple easily while working with them which can be a little frustrating. The overall affect was great. I used the 8" and the 12" on a commercial holiday tree.
ProsA really different appearance then typical paper lanterns. An unusual and unexpected look for the lanterns.
ConsThey dimple easily while working with them which can be corrected by closing them completely and then opening them again.
