DIY Chinese New Year Angpow Basket
Can you believe it that we will be welcoming the Fire Monkey in just a few more days? Still it is not too late to make some DIY CNY decor using past year’s ang pow packets.
This is the first time I am making a basket using red packets.
Chinese New Year Ang Pow Basket
I used 6 red packets for the basket + 12 red packets for the decor + 6 gold packets for the base decor.
First, I cut 6 cardboards and insert into 6 angpow packets.
Then I used cellophane tape to stick them all together.
This is how it should look like after sticking them together.
I cut a hexagon out of the Mandarin Orange box and wrapped it with red paper.
Since we will be welcoming the Monkey this year, I purposely stick a cute monkey on it too :D
I placed it on the basket and stick the flaps to the hexagon board.
There, all nice and ready to be decorated.
I rolled 6 pieces of gold packets and glue the ends.
As shown above.
I stick them to the base of the basket.
I also folded two red packets into fans and glued them together. I made 6 of this.
I cut a long strip from the cardboard and wrapped it with red paper too.
The final step is to stick the handle onto the basket followed by all the decors.
I bought those little flowers from Daiso.
My first ever Ang Pow basket. I made it for my Mom to keep Fortune Cookies in it :)
Check out the rest of our CNY DIY Angpow decor.
