Chinese Lunar New Year (popularly known as Chinese Spring Festival) 2012 is around the corner, which falls on a 7-day holiday Jan 22 – 29, 2012. One way to jazz the festive atmosphere, is to stick paper cuts to windows. Chinese paper cutting decorates windows, are also colloquially called “Chuang Hua”, literally meaning”Window Flowers”.
Paper cuts crafters cut paper with scissors or knife. Paper cutting reflects many aspects life such happiness, prosperity, health or harvet and with more designs and characters in different styles. Most of the papercuts form a symmetrical design.
Every year we at www.tour-beijing.com would purchase some paper cuts to decorate the windowns in our office. Beside window  cutting, new year pendants and couplets are also
used to decorate our office.
The paper cut is stuck to the window in my office with a backdrop of the surounding area. The Chinese characters mean “First Fortune under the world” with two symmetrical dsign of dragons and fish.
