The Chinese have a long tradition of making intricate paper images, frequently using the Chinese Zodiac as subject matter. Perhaps because paper was invented in China, they’ve had the longest amount of time to figure out creative ways to use it- like the ancient and tedious art of Chinese paper cutting. This year we’re making it easy to celebrate the Year of the Dog, the 11th animal in the Chinese Zodiac with your own paper dog faces. A little less intricate than the traditional paper crafting, these photo booth props can be printed at home, cut out and ready for your Chinese New Year celebrations in a few minutes with minimal supplies. You can run wild and have fun posing with these paper dog faces!
May you have a prosperous New Year full of luck and good fortune! If you’re looking for festive decorations to prepare your house for this year’s Spring Festival, browse for red and gold decorations at WholesalePartySupplies.com.
