Chinese New Year is coming up soon! Also known as the Lunar New Year, this holiday is a time of celebration (and a lot of food) spent with family and friends not just in China but in other Asian countries and around the world. There are many customs that are observed during this holiday, but today, we want to introduce some traditional stationery items that pop up around this time of year and show you a couple pieces we made ourselves.

Show how much you appreciate the time and care put into your gift by incorporating it into a Thank You card. Here’s one neat way to do just that.
