Red Packet Star lantern

I’m sorry for the late blog entries of the many ang pow lanterns I’ve done. Many of you are already pestering me! *I know time is running out and CNY is just around the corner* But I’ve just been too busy and last week has been crazy!
 
Anyway, today I’m gonna share with you a very simple red packet craft. It’s a star. But since Chinese people like everything auspicious, let’s call it a Lucky Star lantern shall we?
 
Red Packet Lucky Star Lantern
Fold 10 angpow packets as shown above. It should look like a diamond from the back
 
 
Staple five diamond shape red packets to form a star.
 
Make two sets.
 
Staple the two sets together and you’ll get a lovely LUCKY star lantern. An auspicious decor for Chinese New Year :D Tie a gold string so you can hang it. Add a beautiful tassle to make your star a lovely one :)

    Hi Liz,

    If your ang pow is too long it will be protruding out hence you won’t be able to combine the 2 sets together. It was easy back then when Ang Pow wrappers are made not to be too long. These days the wrappers are made longer and longer. You’d need to cut at least an inch off your angpow wrappers then.
