New: Japanese 3D Paper Craft Sets

A new fun thing in our shop. We received adorable 3D Paper Craft Sets from Japan. They provide you with material to craft kawaii 3D greeting cards, paper wreaths or decorations. To create the 3D effect you need to use a paper embossing ball tool which is not included in the sets.

The sets have super kawaii fairy tale designs and we got quite a few Christmas sets too. They contain lots of templates that you can cut out, emboss and stick on the cards. The printed outlines tell you exactly on what position you need to place the cut-outs, so it’s really easy to do. All the instructions are in Japanese only, but you can easily follow the instructions. We also found a couple of Japanese videos which might help you. Unfortunately we can’t embed them into this post, so visit here to see how to use the embossing ball tool and how to make the 3D paper craft book sets. Also check out our little “how to” collage at the end that we made from photos from the manufacturer to explain the different steps of the DIY sets.

We now offer super cute 3D paper craft sets with adorable designs

Lok and Rilakkuma present some kawaii ideas for your advent calendar

Our packing fairy Lok is the first one to go. She is really an expert in the warehouse, so we asked her to pick some things she thinks are suitable to put in an advent calendar. After all these 24 little things are the first thing on your to do list if you are planning to make one as it has to be ready by December 1st. Her are some of Lok’s ideas:

1. Band-aids

With their kawaii designs and colors these band-aids are everything but boring.

3. Push Pencil

You don’t see them too often anymore, but push pencils are a fun thing that was very popular in the 80s and 90s. Each pencil contains several tips, and once one is used up you take it out and push it to the back of the pencil, so that a new one is revealed.

New fabric material: Jacquard fabrics by echino

Echino released some very pretty Jacquard fabrics which we now have in our shop. It’s a bit hard to see on the pictures, but Jacquards are fabrics with woven-in designs. They have a wonderful texture and look really classy, as metallic yarn and chenille yarn was used for weaving. Some fabrics even have gold metallic yarn in them. Due to this wonderful yarn they all have a silky shine and look very elaborate.

So what can you sew with them? They definitely give everything a unique look and might look a bit opulent, but they are great for table linen, bed linen, curtains, bags, home decor, upholstery or clothes. We can totally see wonderful winter skirts or coats made with the echino Jacquards.
