We have been busy making Chinese New Year Ang Bao/Pow Star. This is how we made it!
10 Ang Bao/Pow
Stapler (use a small stapler if you have one)
Cards (optional): You can use any type of Ang Bao/Pow to make this type of lantern. If your Ang Bao/Pow is quite thin and soft, insert the cards to keep the shape of the Ang Bao/Pow.
Step by step:
1. Slightly pinch the middle of both long ends for easy marking.
2. Fold all four corners inwards as shown. Fold the rest of the Ang Bao/Pow in the same way.
3. Staple five Ang Bao/Pow for the front and repeat for the back of the lantern.
You can either hang the star lantern with red string with tassels or leave it on the window sill. Hope everyone enjoys making this and do check out the rest of my Chinese New Year posts to make Chinese lanterns, Fish, Fan, Chinese coin etc!
