Lanterns made from rolled-up magazine photos w/a battery-powered tealight inside. Possibly worth a try. It would depend on the type of photo. Large flowers might be really colorful and cool... or roll up art paper ... rice paper etc.

So easy and awesome! I never know what I want to use for tea lights.
