D-I-Y Decorations For The Chinese New Year

I have been looking around for ideas on how to make my own decorations for the coming Chinese New Year.    There are so many great ideas out there.  I am left feeling very inspired.  When I came across the Dogwood Flowers paper cutting from Martha Stewart craft blog, I decided to do them using the red envelopes (angpow).    Then I saw another pretty decorating idea – Paper Butterflies.  Just trace the template onto some colourful papers and cut out the shapes.  Attach the butterflies onto the lanterns with tape or glue.  Pretty easy eh?  Now, if you have leftover Christmas Party Invitations, you can use them to cut the butterfly shapes. Christmas Party Invitations are so colourful and vibrant, and they make very pretty paper butterflies.
