Lamp Shade with Squares

The Lamp Shade with Squares both looks and feels far greater value than the 14 pieces of simple copy paper and the short piece of string required for making it. However, do take care and only use the lampshade for a modern low energy LED light bulb – and still make sure to provide good…
