The Balloon Papershade
What better way to brighten up a nursery or a child's bedroom than a cheerful balloon Papershade? This is a new kind of paper lampshade which works as a room light and also a decorative mobile to engage and fascinate a child. It comes with the usual Papershade fitting - two wheel-shaped supports - but has the addition of a little paper 'basket' to hang beneath the balloon and five lengths of raffia to tie to the wheels.
There are two versions of the balloon Papershade to choose from:
They are both easy to assemble and work very well when hung from a central room light. You could pop them onto a table lamp too.
The Balloon Papershade is 22cm in height, 24cm in diameter at the top and 22cm at the bottomn. The fittign is a standard size for a table lamp or room light. We recommend you use a low heat, 40watt energy saving or LED bulb.
The Papershade arrives as a flatpack in an A4 envelope and you assemble it. You can easily create the little paper 'basket' to dangle below the balloon. Just bend in the paper where the dots show, add some glue and stick the sides together. Use a paperclip to fix it in place until it's dry. Then punch five holes into the sides of the basket (one side will have two holes) and thread the raffia through. There's a 'how to' film on the website if you get stuck. The price includes postage and packaging.
