Red Packet Lucky Star Lantern

We are going to make a Star out of red packets today 😀

Red Packet Lucky Star Lantern

Fold ten red packets as shown above.

It should look like a diamond from the back

Staple five diamond shape red packets to form a star.

Make two sets.

Staple the two sets together and you’ll get a lovely LUCKY star lantern.

An auspicious decor for Chinese New Year 😀 Tie a gold string so you can hang it.

Add a beautiful tassle to make your star a lovely one 🙂

      Hi Linda,

      Sorry for the late reply. Place them (pointed edges facing each other) and staple. The flat part should be facing outside while the pointed edges are inside.

      I hope you get what I mean..
