Chinese Red Packet/Envelope and card for wedding - Hongbao(红包) Money_Holder#01_2016(Cottage Greetings)




Hi Hi I made a money holder/Envelope for friend's wedding.


Hongbao(红包)
: Red envelopes are gifts presented at social and family gatherings such as weddings or holidays such as Chinese New Year. The red color of the envelope symbolizes good luck and is supposed to ward off evil spirits.





when I was going to make this, it was completely different looking than this. I was going to even write some Chinese words, But my Chinese handwriting is terrible looking(I only can write my name and basic....) so gave up to do it.
Some reason, butterfly, red and gold are just "Chinese". I don't know why. hmmmm
I didn't even have any ideas to start with, I just cut butterfly out and started to watercolour it. more and more I tried, I knew what I was going to do!




all of money's size will be different, so I won't put any dimensions of this project.




Hope you like this project. Here is a video start to finish process video.

Have a fun!
