Personalised Ang Pow Packet DIY

Do you write names on the back of Ang Pows for those special people in your life? I do. I mean I used to but this year, not anymore for today, we personalized our Ang Pow packets :D

Personalised Ang Pow packet

First, you’ll need to choose a picture of the person you are giving the Ang Pow to. This is easily done by stalking their Facebook account :P I helped Ethan to get the pictures of my nieces from my sisters’ FB account and saved them in my PC. I deliberately saved them upside down so that when we print, we’ll have space to fold and cut. Don’t tell me to adjust the alignment as I don’t know how to do all those! >_<

So Ethan chose my niece Hazel to start with.

There, my niece Hazel is on paper :P

You’ll need an old Ang Pow and carefully tear it open. Use it as a template. Trace around the template.

Like that.



Fold and paste accordingly.

The personalised Ang Pow packet is done! Quick and easy, even a 4 year old can do it.

Ethan did for all my nieces and some of himself to be given to his grand parents. This year I do not need to write names behind Ang Pow packets anymore :D

    • //

      Hi Ash,

      We printed using our HP Deskjet Ink Advantage K209 Series. Cheers.

    Very good idea wor. It’s much easier to distribute angpow by looking at the cover photo. Unlike me need to remember the angpow packet, I even written the name on certain angpow too kekeke
