The story behind these paper lampshades
***************************************
Have you heard about Snowpuppe yet? Snowpuppe is a clever snowman living on the Arctic.
He had a huge problem: during the winters on the arctic he was not able to do the things he liked because it was dark all day long.
Friends of his tried to use light bulbs to solve this problem, but their houses melted. Snowpuppe almost lost some good friends because they could not escape from their melting houses.
One day, Santa Claus visited Snowpuppe and gave him some special energy-saving lightbulbs. With these lights Snowpuppe would be able to light his house without having to be afraid of melting.
Snowpuppe tried the lights and could do all the things he wanted: reading a good book, having friends over and watching polar bears. However, he was still not quite happy. On the contrary he was actually quite depressed.
After a while he noticed that the light of his energy-saving lightbulbs were not giving the warm colorful light that he was used to get from the sun.

And that's why he decided to start experimenting with diamonds made out of paper of a lot of different colors.
He thought these would help the energy-saving lightbulbs to give more natural, warm and colorful light. After weeks of experimenting, he called 'Eureka', because he had made special paper diamonds that really made him happy and took him out of his winter depression.
Snowpuppe ended up frosting his whole house with his lampshades and soon got the cosiest home in the arctic.

However, in the end he was still not happy. All the other artic Snowpuppes also wanted his lampshades. He had to work day and night to make these.
Luckily, Nellianna and Kenneth heard about him and decided to help him out.



Look & feel
******************************
This lampshade has a cornered outside and a curved inside.
The curved inside is quite unexpected. Just like the first time you open a chestnut and see that it is very round and curved on the inside.

This lampshade is folded of 1 piece of special Grey paper of the type Butterfly.
The strong folds and curved folds on the inside play with the light.
Designed by Kenneth and Nellianna

******************************

What kind of lightbulb?
******************************
These lampshades are for use with an energy-saving lightbulb or LED lightbulb only.
You can find these in any supermarket.
If you use an energy-saving lightbulb of maximum 11 Watt, then it's completely safe to use our lampshades.
Compared to the lightbulbs that you are probably used to, an energy-saving lightbulb of 11 Watt is the same as an old lightbulb of 60 Watt.

The lampshades are perfect for use with energy-saving lightbulbs because the lampshades make the light warmer, more natural and cosy.
The colored paper has a stunning coloring effect on the light.
