Choose the blue or red eagle clip art, and print -- both sides of the head and 2 copies of each wing -- onto heavyweight paper. Set your printer's margins to zero (or as narrow as possible). For a 9-inch bell, choose the small eagle clip art. Print the wing pieces (2 per sheet) twice, and head pieces (2 per sheet) once. For an 11-inch bell, choose the medium eagle clip art. Print each wing piece (1 per sheet) twice and each head piece (1 per sheet) once.
Cut out pieces; using spray adhesive, glue heads and wings in pairs, back to back, to make double-sided.
Open bell, and secure it with double-sided tape. Attach 1 wing with hot glue, pressing the tabs between layers of tissue, below. Repeat with second wing. Hot-glue the head in place, pressing it into the layers of tissue at the rounded center of the bell.
Using hot glue, attach circle to lantern bottom. With a glue stick, adhere 4 more ribbons in pairs, back to back, making 2 double-sided streamers. Curl streamers around a pencil; hot-glue to lantern.
Westminster bells, 9 inches
Paper ribbons inscribed with the words "America the Beautiful" dress up accordion-style lanterns. Tuck LED tea lights inside for a safe glow. You can also learn how to make the bald eagle lanterns.
