30 days until Christmas

A bit more than a month to go until Christmas. Wouldn’t it be fun to even give your food a Christmas look? On the Chinese Blog hippomum we found the cutest Christmas sandwiches and Christmas bentos. Especially the sandwich is really easy to make and looks so adorable.

A great gift idea connected to food: Give a kawaii Bento Box as a present and already prepare a cute Christmas Bento, so that the person who receives your gift can start eating immediately.

40 days until Christmas

Time to start your Christmas preparations. Christmas cards are a great thing you can already prepare now. You might think that crafting cards yourself is a lot of work, but it really is not. At least if you have the right material it is a matter of minutes. We totally recommend Japanese Washi Tape for this. Just by adding a couple of stripes to some cardboard you can already create a personal and creative card. And also making shapes out of tape like Christmas trees or Christmas tree balls is an easy thing to do. The more additional techniques you use, e.g. drawings, stamps the more elaborate your card becomes. The result is always great when using Masking Tape!

You can use seasonal Christmas tapes for your crafting, but ‘neutral’ designs work as well as you can see on the pictures we found on some creative blogs.
