When I was a kid, my parents would give us "lucky money" for Chinese New Year. The money would be tucked into red envelopes, and usually had metallic gold writing. I always had to ask them what the words meant, since I can't read Chinese.
Twelve animals represent the Chinese zodiac signs, and 2022 is Year of the Tiger. I really wanted my "lucky envelope" to hold more than money – I wanted it to also hold candy, a rice cracker, and a paper fortune teller.
The tiger box can be cut from one sheet of card stock. Then I cut the accents out of vinyl to make it easy to assemble. A handy guide helps me make sure the accents are applied exactly where they need to go.
The tiger box was so much fun to make - honestly I don’t know if I go through all this effort for the kids, or for me. And of course you can use this gift box as a party favour for any occasion.
