Not sure if it happen to you. I always have loads of leftover red packet envelopes unused every year.. and some them are very beautiful and I just can’t bear to throw them away. As such, I have thought of cutting them out and make them into Chinese New Year cards.

I hope you will like these 3 cards that I have made them out from red packet envelopes. 🙂

I am a big fan of Precious Moments) during a trip to Taiwan some years back. If I were to go to Taiwan again, I would definitely go to the shop again to get more Precious Moments stamps. 😀

Recently Joyce shared a link on DIY red packet envelope by doing stamping and embossing. So I decided to give it a try too. 🙂
