Red Envelope Fish (紅包魚) for Chinese New Year

In this video, I’ll teach you how to make a paper fish from Red Envelopes / Hong Pao / Lai See / Ang Pau / 紅包 (so many ways to spell it, haha).

All is requires is one red envelope, a pair of scissors, and a stapler with staples to secure the tail. You can also use glue to assemble the tail if you wish.

HINT: If you don’t have red envelopes, tape two adjacent sides of two square sheets of paper together to get the “envelope” effect (watch until the end of the tutorial to see what I mean)!

It’s the year of the sheep. HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR! Wishing you happiness and health!
