Chinese New Year Lantern in Japanese Style

I went shopping at "Daiso" and found these very cute Japanese style New Year envelopes called "pochibukuro".

These envelopes are also used for gift money "Otoshidama" on New Year's Day in Japanese custom, very similar to our tradition of giving Ang Bao or Red packet during Chinese New Year.

Therefore, I decided to use these Japanese style New Year envelopes to make lanterns for our coming Chinese New Year!

Finally, I made this lantern successfully!!

Hope you would like my lantern idea, and I wish everyone a Happy New Year!
