Lantern-Making in China

Su-King, a 17-year-old girl from Jiaxing in Zhejiang
Province, China, sent me this card. She said it is about
a traditional Chinese art. The legend on the front
of the card tells about the 8 techniques used in
lantern-making--puncture, bending, knotting,
binding, carving, painting, pasting and mounting.
Thank you, Su-King, for the great card.
I love the lanterns shown at the top too!
These pretty little bird and flower
stamps brought Su-King's card to me.
