This red packet seashell tree ornament is extremely easy to do. This Chinese New Year, let’s do one ๐Ÿ™‚

Red Packet Seashell Tree Ornament

Fold the red packet in half.

Cut the folded side of the packet into strips measuring about 0.5cm each. Make sure you leave about 1 cm around the edges before you start cutting, as you are going to staple the edges together later.

Open up the folded red packet. Bring together two opposite corners and staple them together. Poke a hole through one of the ends, put a thread through it and tie a knot in the end of the thread.
