New Years Tradition - Noodles

Mae Armstrong has a family tradition for New Years: they always cook noodles.   The tradition originated in Japan and is common in Asian culture as it brings longevity and good luck!

Mae normally does stir fry noodles called Pancit which her twin boys absolutely love.  To celebrate the holidays even further, Mae gave the boys their very own chopsticks.   She found training chopsticks at Target and created a quick project with them to make them extra special.

Mae created a simple chopstick holder.  She picked a red card stock and cut it lengthwise, scored and folded in half.  Mae selected two coordinating paper patterns and stamped a circle tag with "Luck" using PSA Essentials Peel & Stick stamps.  She mounted the circle tag on top of the starburst cut-out.

She secured rectangle patterned paper on the chopstick holder and glued the sentiment on top. She wrapped it with gold stretchy string for a festive touch.  How cute is this?  And what a great tradition!
