十全宫灯 "Shi Quan" Palace lantern

This YouTube video shows how to make a palace lantern with red envelopes (Ang Bao)

I estimated it takes about 30 red envelopes: 16 red envelopes to form the bottom section; 8 envelopes to form the top sections; reminding for decorations.

The folding method for each red envelope as shown in the video is very similar to the way I make my "Golden Flower Corolla".
