Today is the beginning of the Chinese New Year, if my information is correct, and I'm wishing all of you a happy, healthy, prosperous, successful New Year. On this day, money gifts are given in red envelopes to recipients for good luck in the coming year. Since I didn't have a red envelope, i made one.
Remember when I said a couple of days ago I had painted peppers but couldn't show them? Well, I flipped that painting over and painted the practice rose posted yesterday. This morning i cut that paper into an envelope pattern. Yeah, the cuts aren't perfect but it gives you the general idea on making an envelope for use as a gift holder. Now, to glue the flaps and stick in some money.
