Hi all. Well, we intended to have a BIG blog celebration with lots of tutorials. But Phoebe getting sick all the past week, and me now sick, changes those plans.
So, here is a simple, sweet blog post for the Year of the Snake; and a Chinese lantern step by step with photo directions.
The little princesses were purchased during the adoption trip summer of 2012, at Guangzhou, Shamian Island. As was the blue dress.
The snake is made very simply by lining up oranges, cutting a snake tongue from crepe, and adding eyes with a marker!
The lantern: all you need is paper, scissors, a handle to be made from crepe, paper, or ribbon, and streamers from same.
We wish you many blessings in the year of the snake. "Gung hay fat choy"
For the children,
