How to make Ang Pow Snake

We are early this time around in making Chinese New Year Ang Pow decor. It’s just that the mojo suddenly comes ya know? :D

Today we are going to share how to make a simple red packet snake as we will be welcoming the year of the SNAKE in 2013.

Ang Pow Snake

Cut open a red packet.

Fold in half and cut away excess to get a square. 

Fold both sides to the middle.

Fold again to the middle.

Fold the top part to the middle. 

Make creases as shown above. 

Fold along the creases to get a snake like above. 

This is the head. 

Hood fold the tip of the head. 

Tuck the tip in and paste googly eyes.

This simple Ang Pow Snake is done! Try making this before we proceed to more hardcore Ang Bao Snake decor, shall we?
