The Chinese knot is a symbol of beauty and wisdom of the Chinese ancient civilization. Before Chinese written characters were developed, people tied knots to make records of their lives. The size and shape indicated the significance and nature of an event. Paper cutting is one of the most popular decorative Chinese handicrafts.  They are made of red paper and are used during festivals like Lunar New Year, weddings, and birthdays to express hopes and wishes, as well as to symbolize luck, happiness, and longevity. 

This workshop is recommended for children in grades 3 and up.

Presented by Murray Hill Chinese School.

Supplies needed:

1. 2 pieces of 8 1/2" x 11"  (letters size) paper.  Red is the best, but other colors also work. 
2. Print and cut out the attached template for Chinese character "Luck"  and the  two " Ox" patterns.
3. 1 piece of 3mm or thicker satin cord or parachute cord, 15". 
4. 1 piece of 0.8mm or 1.4mm or 1.5mm statin or metallic cord/string, 36".
(for 4. and 5., you'll want a piece of thicker cord, and a piece of thinner cord with two different colors that compliment each other)
5. 2 jewelry beads with holes big enough for two of your thinner cords to go through together.
6. Will also need: a pair of scissors, a pencil, removable tape/stapler and a hole puncher (optional).
