Red Envelope Turtle

In this Chinese New Year crafts tutorial, I’ll show you how to make a turtle 龜 [龟] from Chinese New Year red envelopes (or: Hong Pao, Lai See, Ang Pau, 紅包; there are so many ways to say it). 🙂 If you don’t have red envelopes, you may also cut regular paper to make the turtle as well (red or gold paper is recommended for good luck), to create the turtle. Turtles symbolizes of wisdom and longevity.

Happy Chinese New Year! 新年快樂!
