Paper Crafts


More contemporary varieties of Joss paper include cheques, credit cards, smartphones, iPad as well as clothes, houses, cars, toiletries, pizza boxes and servants. The designs on items of cardboard vary from the very simple to very elaborate with custom artwork and names. In some Chinese mythology these objects are sent by living relatives to dead ancestors for a shorter stay or to escape punishment, or for the ancestors to use themselves in spending on lavish items in the afterlife.
