Chinese New Year Party Favors

We finish up our Chinese New Year Celebration today with these fun Party Favors. Fireworks are a Chinese New Year tradition, and so are red gift packets or envelopes of money and trinkets. The two are combined in these easy to make and frugal Party Favors.

They add such excitement to the buffet, for the kids and adults as well.

Let’s gather our supplies…

Chinese New Year Party Favors Supplies:

  • Printed Dragon Party Favor design from Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade
  • Cardstock to print them on or toilet paper rolls can also be used
  • 1 piece {8 x 10 1/2 inches} red tissue paper
  • Glue stick or glue dots
  • Clothespins for holding them until they dry
  • String to tie the ends closed
  • Gold metallic filler to add to the ends
  • Candy, coins or other small toys

  1. Print out the Party Favor {found HERE} onto cardstock and cut out. Glue together and use clothespins to hold if necessary
  2. Roll up tissue and slip into tube
  3. Tie up one end with string
  4. Fill with candy and coins
  5. Tie up other end
  6. Add gold filler to the ends for decoration

The Chinese New Year Party Favors were also quite frugal too.  Depending on what you fill them with, you can make them for about $.50 cents each. I think they would be super fun at a child’s birthday party as well.

  1. This is amazing! My step dad is English and we do this a Christmas every year, but usually I’m running to world market are pier 1 and spending a fortune for six little crackers. But this is perfect! I definitively have to try this out.

    On above website to get the black dragon to make party favors but no luck
    Any ideas where I might find this

      Hi Ardis, well it appears that Semi Homemade has taken down their site. I searched around for another printable and did not find anything, however, if you search Google images… – then type in “year of the dragon”, you will see lots of different photos. From there you can either save the photo if it’s free, or purchase one from a site that hosts images.
      Sorry I couldn’t help more.
