Carefully remove the sky lantern from its plastic packaging. Then gently unfold it. The tissue paper is thin and easily torn with rough handling.
Carefully open up the sky lantern by gently shaking it, using the same type of motion you use to open a plastic garbage bag but more gently. Make sure all flat seams have been opened up. Then remove the white paper covering from the waxy fuel pad.
Your fuel pad is a multi-layer sandwich of paper and wax-impregnated cloth. Open up one corner of it, so that several layers are spread open. Then turn the sky lantern on its side and light the opened-up corner of the fuel pad. A windproof butane lighter works really well. Be careful not to let the flame burn the tissue paper. Do not lite lanterns indoors. Keep holding the lantern sideways til the fuel pad is burning well. Then flip the sky lantern so the fuel pad is underneath the lantern. Then hold the lantern by the top, allowing the sky lantern to completely fill with hot air. It may take a minute or two for the lantern to completely up. The sky lantern will start pushing upwards as you hold it, and will try to rise. At that point hold the sky lantern for 20-30 seconds more. At that point, you can release it any time you want.
If any wind is blowing while you're holding the sky lantern, it may collapse the sides in. If that happens, do not release your sky lantern until either the wind stops, or the sky lantern burns out. Never release a sky lantern into the wind. It can get blown sideways and start a fire.
