Instructions:

Step {1} Hold your paper in landscape, and measure 16cm from the top. Draw a line horizontally

Step {2} Measure 29cm from the left side, and draw a line vertically

Step {3} Measure 7.5cm from each side and make a mark at each point

Step {4} Draw a diagonal line from each 7.5cm point to the edge of the paper at the 16cm line. The final shape should measure 14cm at the top, 29cm at the bottom and 16cm from top to bottom

Step {5} Cut out the shape

Step {6} Place tape along the one side of the page, and bring it around to the other side to form the lamp shade

Step {7} Light the tea light candle and drop it into the wine glass

Step {8} Place the lampshade over the glass. Voila! Your romantic table decor is ready to light up the scene.
