DIY Angpow Flower Lantern

We’ll need 60 pieces of square angpows. It is getting rather difficult to get square red packets these days as the ones I got are mostly rectangular ones and these are my final 60 square ones :(

Fold half and fold the flip down. Staple. Repeat this steps for the entire 60 angpows.

Separate them into 5s and staple together forming 12 little flowers.

Separate them into 2 groups – 6 little flowers in each.

Staple 2 petals together.


Staple the third petal (from the third flower) to the first two petals and repeat with the remaining 3 flowers. As long as you are stapling 3 petals together, you can’t go wrong. 


You’ll get 2 sets of 6 little flowers as shown above.  Staple those two together and your Angpow Flower Lantern is done!
