Follow the safety instructions first.
Sky lanterns are for outdoor use only and are not toys. They should be kept away from children at all times.
A minimum of two adults are required to light and release a sky lantern.
Take out the folded sky lanterns carefully from the plastic wrapping, being very careful not to tear or rip the delicate paper. If the lantern is damaged in any way, do not use it.
If you wish to write on the lantern, do so before lighting and only use the pen provided (only applicable on orders of 10 lanterns or more). Be careful not to damage the lantern.
Do not tie or add anything to the lantern.
Before lighting the lantern, hold it by the bamboo rim and gently fill the lantern with air to expand it fully and remove the creases in the tissue paper.
To light the lantern, hold it by the top and the bamboo rim whilst another person lights the wick by holding a naked flame against it for a few seconds.
Sky lanterns, also known as Kongming Lantern are airborne paper lanterns traditionally found in some Asian cultures. They are constructed from oiled rice paper on a bamboo frame, and contain a small candle or fuel cell composed of a waxy flammable material. When lit, the flame heats the air inside the lantern, thus lowering its density causing the lantern to rise into the air.
The sky lantern is only airborne for as long as the flame stays alight, after which the lantern floats back to the ground.
