little things for little people



















while getting colored paper to make birthday hats for little bb,
i came across blank red pockets which are for making customized pockets for lai see money (lucky money for chinese new year).
i thought it would be quite fun to make customized lai see pockets ~ though i didn't really have any idea at the time.... 
also got two glittered glue pencils, one in gold and one in silver, just in case if i couldn't figure out what to do with the pockets, i could at least write and draw on them.

when i got home, i took out my treasure bag ~ a bag full of scraps, stickers, ribbons, doily paper, magazine cut outs ~ for ideas...
to my delight, i found a pack of heart-shaped doily paper in red and pink ~ never used before!
perfect colors for this festive holiday!
so i wrapped the doily paper around the pockets, added heart-shaped stickers here and there....
as a final touch, i wrote the chinese character,,  which stands for "blessings", with the glittered pencils i got on small squares cut out from red colored paper and glued to the red pockets.

i made three altogether...
for my god-children san san & didi and my little bb.

am quite happy with how the red pockets turned out!



























and this one is for little bb........






















on the first day of the chinese new year,
we gave the red pocket to little bb.
his first lai see money from us!



























then,
to get ready to go to visit little bb's grandmother and his 100th day little party,
we put on the little big bowtie i made for him, together with his brand new outfit.

i deliberately made the bowtie bigger....
and i couldn't help but kept giggling once we put on the bowtie...
he looks like hello kitty!  hehehe........

all ready for the first day of the chinese new year!
little bb's first chinese new year!
