Sassy Collab: Horsing Around with Paper for Chinese New Year!


As we take down our Christmas ornaments from our trees, we’re blessed this year to have Chinese New Year come a little earlier than usual. We’re back to decorating the house with all things gold and red. With Chinese New Year around the corner, we’re excited to see all the “Lai-See” pop-up stores sprinkle around Hong Kong. It’s the year of the horse and we’ve found some great paper from various stores including Prints to make our very own custom red pockets and wall art. Here are some ideas on what you can do with all the unique and beautiful red pockets out there.
