Chinese Paper Cutting Crafts

Saw many chinese paper cuttings on sale in Chinatown. They are beautifully cut. Chinese Paper Cuttings is part of chinese culture where they are either cut by scissors or paper cutters.

The only paper cuttings that I know how to cut must be the chinese character "Shuang Xi" which means double happiness. I did that long ago during my wedding.

It can be quite stressful to shop for Chinese New Year. I need to stock up on food by end of this week or early next week cause majority of shops, markets and malls will be close during the 1st two days of chinese new year and some shops will close for a few days.
