Contemporary Chinese New Year Envelopes - Year of the Dog by Kiin

Contemporary, limited edition red envelopes by Kiin to celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year, The Year of the Dog.

This Week’s Picks

♥ I worked with Pretty Pink Posh to design several of the stamp sets and metal dies in their latest release. Lots of birthday and love-themed crafting goodies to be found in the new collection!

♥ These diy confetti postcards from The House That Lars Built are lots of fun!

♥ Eep, mini plaid thermos favors! This is such a clever idea.

♥ Learn the basics of block printing from Think.Make.Share. This takes me back to 6th grade art class, which was probably the last time that I carved a linoleum block – good times.
