On the HP website there’s a great project for Chinese New Year lantern votives. It would work best on clear vellum and the printable pattern is available to download on the HP website.
The lantern project would not be suitable for small children since an x-acto knife is used but it’s a very pretty affect with the votives.
There are a couple Chinese wall hanging patterns available for download as well. They would create a very nice ambiance along with the lanterns.
Happy Chinese New Year, especially if you’re a rat!
