DIY Chinese New Year Red Packet Decor : Angpow RAT

I know it’s a little early but I am already making Chinese New Year decorations using Angpow packets. I always make them early as I can get really busy closer to CNY with all the bakings and more. So it is wise to make these red packets decor now, store them safely and bring them out weeks before Chinese New Year. 

We will be welcoming the RAT zodiac next year hence I’ll be sharing how to make a simple yet adorable ANGPOW MOUSE.

Materials needed:
2 Angpow Packets of different colours (1 for the head, body and tail and another for the inner ear)
2 Googly Eyes
Black Thread
Black Pipe Cleaner
