Chinese New Year Cards Using Red Packet Envelopes

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. 🙂

1. Red Packet from Singapore Pools.
Simply love the foil details in this red packet design.
