[Video] Saigon Artists Craft Beautiful, Handmade Lucky Money Envelopes

With the lunar new year just days away, everyone is scrambling to complete their last-minute Tet preparations, from getting a haircut to re-painting the house to stocking up on those ever-important lì xì envelopes.

However, while it’s easy to run down to your local Tet market and snap up a few red-and-gold packets, some are getting inventive with their envelopes this year. Local creative outfit 90 Kins, for example, recently posted a Facebook video which shows the group of artists stamping their very own designs onto a series of custom-made lì xì envelopes ahead of the holiday.

Take a look at the beautiful original artwork below:
