    I tried.but can’t combine the 2 sets together..is it because my ang pow papers too long? i’s the long type

      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.
