|Chinese New Year Red Envelope and Money Origami Flowers|
Chinese New Year falls on January 23 this year, and 2012 is the Year of the DRAGON! Festivities will continue for weeks, and a bouquet of origami flowers made from Lucky Red Envelopes and play money is a perfect addition to any Chinese New Year celebration.
Red is the color of joy and celebration. The Lucky Red Envelopes are traditionally stuffed with money and given to friends and family at times of celebration.
If you count carefully, you'll also see eight red envelope flowers and eight money flowers. This is because the number eight conveys wealth and fortune. Its pronunciation in Chinese is a homophone for the word "wealth."
