Even during the very first discussion with my pretty decorator, I told her I will take care of the “Angpao Box” myself because we (as in Bobby and I) already had an idea what we wanted.
We didn’t want bird cage (eventhough it is beautiful) because people told us that it’s a total b* to put in and take out. I don’t even want to start with those mainstream expensive angpao boxes sold in the internet that are basically boxes decorated with ribbons and cutesy couple plushies.
I love the Raving Rabbids angpao box I saw from the internet so much that I told Bobby that I wanted something like that, but not with the Rabbids lah.. though I also love those menacing rabbits!

Then Bobby thought, why don’t we use Yip Yips? If you follow my blog long enough, I hope you remember we once joined the HSBC Run and we dressed as Yip-Yips!
Once upon a time in May 2011….
It’s an awesome way to recycle the fabric.
We didn’t even need to redo it!
And then I made the speech balloons and ta-da!
