I’m always looking for ways to make our family dinner time more fun and I often turn to different cultures to find inspiration. Chinese New Year is coming up on February 8 this year, so we’ll be ordering in some Chinese food and I’ll decorate our table for the occasion. I decided to dress-up some chopsticks to make the table look really fun!

By the way, these Floral Chopsticks would look great as hair accessories as well!

Step Two. Use the Adtech Crafter’s Tape around the edges of the cut rectangle on the backside of the decorative paper. Do not run the glue along the top, cut edge!

Step Three: Place the cut rectangle piece over the decorative side of the uncut rectangle. Press edges together to seal glue. Add washi tape accents if desired. Slip your Floral Chopsticks inside the sleeve and place on table.Floral Chopsticks D
