Who says angpows must be boring, red and free-of-charge from banks? Stand out and make your own red packets this lunar new year! This is simple and can be done in a few minutes, no tutorial required honestly.
I tried making these red packets using different types of paper. The first is some kind of fibre texture paper, which tends to get crumpled easily. Second is using wrapping paper, which is a tad flimsy and get creases easily. Hence, for these 2 types of paper, it is important to be careful when handling the materials.
As for the last 2 red packets, I used acid-free scrapbooking paper to make. Material is thick and of better quality, and the overall presentation on close-up is definitely much better than the other 2 materials. As the paper is stiffer as well, use more tape or glue to secure and prevent the folds to open up.
Template for the ang pow? No need for me to provide! Just get a free one from the bank or something, open them up at the sides and there you have your own template.
