Gift for Valentine: Heart-shaped Ang Pao

Hello everyone,

It’s been a while since our last project.  This time round we are gonna teach you something really sweet for the Chinese New Year – craft your own Heart-Shaped Ang Pao (Chinese Red Envelope)!

Since young I’ve always been intrigued by origami, and I thought I could do something really special for the upcoming Chinese New Year, which also happens to coincide with Valentine’s Day!  After some engineering, I came up with this heart-shaped ang pao to symbolise this really special occasion.

How often do the 2 special occasions fall on the same day?  This heart-shaped ang bao succinctly symbolises the significance of the union of the 2 really special occasions. Of course, you may also use it as an envelope for your Valentine’s love note.
