Chinese New Year

These are some invitations I did for my son's Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet. The theme this year is Chinese New year. They had to be simple so I could do a lot of them quickly. It's customary for red envelopes with money in them to be given to bring good luck, so I tucked some fake money into these "envelopes". The "Fu" symbol is printed out and then cut and mounted with my circle cutter. Gold paint around the edges of the front, and also used to distress the insert. I found the back picture on another pack's website and stuck it to the back. Tied the symbol and the pull-out insert with rafia.
