Chinese Spring Festival Character Papercutting Mobile Template

Paper cutting is one of the oldest handicrafts in Chinese culture. The cut-outs are used to adorn walls, doors, and windows for a festive celebration. You will typically see the cut-outs on red paper because red represents good luck. Get creative by printing this outline template on different colored paper or simply use the template as a reference and draw on your colored paper. This set includes the Chinese characters “Spring” [春] and lucky symbols of Yuan Bao [元寶], gold coin, and flowers. After you have cut out all the parts, you can tape them to the window or door or hang them as a beautiful lucky mobile! If you have a colored printer, you can download a colored version of this template.  For more inspiration on Chinese New Year crafts, see here
