This looks like origami paper…? Have you looked at scrapbooking paper? I don’t know the texture but the craft stores have aisles of colors and designs.

A really lightweight vellum would look really good. It is origami paper, usually used in those crafts. I made mine using vellum and put them over purple lights. They turned out really cute!!

Here’s a tutorial on it: http://www.instructables.com/id/party_paper_lanterns/

No, I didn’t have any trouble at all! I don’t know what happened with yours… 🙁 How are you expanding the box? by blowing in the little hole at the end? I just do it really slowly and press the edges as I’m doing it to force them to pop out in the right places, lol!
