DIY: Heart Paper Garland


HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Hope you are having a sweet day so far… :) The Internet is filled with love and hearts, I love it! Mili and I made these really easy heart paper garland yesterday at her music class (thanks to her teacher!) I just wanted to share. Great craft you can do with kids!

All you need is some stripes of papers and glue. You take the stripe, fold it in half and glue the end together to make a heart-shape. You can make it long or short, it’s so easy and cute!

Origami Origami

When I visited Kinokuniya book store last Friday, I saw so many great stationery and paper goods besides Japanese books. And I had to get this “Origami” (in Japanese below, it says “Origami Origami”) — isn’t this so cute?!

Comes with a lot of everyday-use origami instructions like these:

and it comes with so many cute and fun patterns, I wanted to get more, but the ones I liked were all gone… but this polka-dots & bunny stickers sure came home with me :)

Hope you had a nice weekend… let the new week begin!

Paper Dress

Found this pretty and fun paper dress at the Papyrus show window in upper east side. Caught my eye. It looks like it was made out of scrap papers or misprint papers all cut out to circles. Being a recycle supporter, I think it’s such a cool way to use waste papers :) It also made the dress in fun colors and gave the fish-scale-like texture which I like!
