Your pre-assembled pendant lamps are made from washable paper. How is washable paper different from regular paper?

 Washable paper is different from regular paper in several ways. Here are some of the differences:

  • Made from cellulose fibre, washable paper is a natural and durable material derived from wood. Unlike regular paper, it is remarkably tear-resistant, water-resistant, and long-lasting.
  • The washable paper has a matte finish and the translucent qualities of traditional paper.
  • Embracing sustainability, washable paper is made from renewable resources and is biodegradable. By choosing our lampshades, you opt for a beautiful and eco-friendly lighting solution, making a positive impact on the environment. 

What comes with Vasili Lights' DIY papercraft kit?

Each set includes pre-cut paper templates, which you assemble into the actual 3D paper lampshade. These templates are packed into a solid cardboard envelope and sent to you along with an illustrated step-by-step assembly guide. Additionally, you can watch the how-to video demostrating how to make your paper lamp. Please note that the cord set and bulb are not included.
The assembled lampshade fits around standard lightbulbs. You can easily attach it to a pendant light fitting which you have in your house.

 How long does it take to assemble my paper lamp?

Few hours. Depends on your skills and how much of a perfectionist you are. 
Maybe it will take longer if you take a break to move your body or shift your attention sometimes but it will help you enjoy the process. See it as a way to escape stressful everyday moments. Fall in love with the process and the results will come.

What tools do I need?

Most of the work has been done. The parts have been pre-cut. The folding lines are perforated. Here's the cool piece. Just fold along the lines and glue the parts together. All you will need for successful assembly is glue. Optionally you can order our UHU Glue. Have fun!

What glue should I use for successful assembly?

For the best results, we recommend using UHU All Purpose Adhesive or Wood Glue (PVA-based). To guide you through the glueing process, refer to helpful how-to videos with step-by-step instructions.
While we aim to provide a seamless crafting experience, please note that we cannot guarantee outcomes due to various factors, such as environmental conditions and individual crafting techniques.
We are not responsible for any issues that may arise from using glue during the assembly process.
We encourage you to be careful and creative. If you have any concerns, feel free to contact us.
Happy crafting!

What type of light bulb should I use?

Our lampshades are for use with a LED light bulb only.
