Many of the students in my school celebrate Lunar New Year or Tet. This year is the Year of the Rabbit in the Chinese Lunar calendar. I found the decorations in my local variety store for just a few dollars each including the Lanterns which came in packs of 2 for $5.
I bought the gorgeous red satin fabric at a local fabric store for $5 per metre. The best thing about the satin is that it allows us to make a quick transition from Lunar New Year to Library Lovers Day on February 14.
I have also used a machine called Craft Robo to design circles of rabbits using an image I found at : http://nearnessofdistance.blogspot.com/2011/02/chinese-new-year-rabbit.html
I put the image into Adobe Illustrator and used the craft robo machine to cut them out in red and gold cardboard. I put all the circles on the windows at the front and back of the library.’
