Advice♪Not just fun and games when folding paper
Put on your thinking caps!
This time we’ll use these special origami sheets to create something more than just a fun activity. Once again we'll venture back to Daiso, our local 100-yen shop to shop for the equipment we'll be using today. Let’s use the origami paper to give these our New Year’s cards a new stylish look!
- What are Japanese New Year's cards?
- In Japan, New Year’s cards are kind of a big deal. To put it simply, they are a way to show appreciation to those you have encountered throughout the year. And also a way to ask for their continued support and good relationship with you for another year. These cards can almost be compared to sending a personalized Christmas card. Although these days with the rise of individuals’ text messaging and emailing instead of sending cards, the culture of sending New Year’s cards still remains unchanged. Nothing can surpass the feeling of receiving a hand-written personalized letter.
- 1. First, organize the New Year’s cards and origami paper, then place the origami on the back and front cover of the cards. Firmly attach the paper to the card! If not aligned properly there’s a high possibility the paper may be skewed later so make sure. However there may be a little bit of play at the top and bottom, but don’t worry it can’t be helped.
