A glance at the new mt Washi Tape collection

The Japanese company mt showed us some items from the brand new mt Washi Masking Tape collection including some really cool Christmas tapes. They developed a lot of beautiful tapes with incredible prints that create a great effect. Just look at the tapes with the crazy map design. The tape with the colourful bows is also very suitable to cut out the bows and stick them on something. The Christmas tapes you see on the last pictures are great too, but we don’t know if we can get them yet. What do you think about the new collection? Do you have a favourite already?

Prepare for the wedding season

Here comes the bride. Maybe you already have a few invitations for these festive occasions or will even get married yourself this year. Fact is wedding season starts in May and that means work for you. If you get married yourself there are a million things to organise of course, but even if you’re “just” a wedding guest questions come up like what to wear or what to give as a present. If you like crafting you will find a million things in our shop to create unique cards, gifts and outfits for all the upcoming weddings.

Today we have a brief overview of our wedding items for you, but every week from now on we will introduce every category more detailed to give you more examples and inspiration.

1. Crafting accessories

Hearts, flowers, wedding cake – we have all the traditional wedding symbols which will help you to create something cute and personal for upcoming weddings. Craft a unique wedding card with lovely stickers and stamps, wrap your present with colourful deco tapes or work suitable accessories like fabrics or erasers in your presents. If you’re looking for a good way to decorate a money present, the accessories will help you do it.

2. Wedding presents

We have to be honest: Almost all the wedding gift ideas we present to you require some crafting work. But it will pay off, because self-made things are just a wonderful present. For example to make a creative photo album for the bridal couple with one of our scrapbooking kits, which are already equipped with the basis you need for crafting. Or give away a cute DIY clay set to make clay jewels – a funny way to refer to the wedding rings. You could also pack a funny honeymoon package with fabrics and accessories for an unforgetable trip. Of course most of our crafting products are a great little addition to any present you have.

3. What to wear

The bad news: We don’t sell dresses, so you’ll have to make them yourself or get them tailored. The good news: With the fabrics from our shop you will definitely have a one of a kind and incredibly beautiful outfit. And you can decide yourself how much you want to dive into the wedding theme: heart fabrics, flower fabrics or classical and discrete designs like polka dots, we have it all.

Our favourite product of the week: Paris Deco Tapes

This week was all about stationery. We added stickers, scrapbooking kits and really lots and lots of new Washi Masking Tapes to our shop. When we saw the two cute Paris Washi Tape sets we got all nostalgic. Don’t they just want to make you hop on a plane and go on a holiday to France? We totally got itchy feet when we saw the beautiful designs.

Both sets are in the French national colours red, white and blue and have really nice designs. Perfect for your travel diary, for wrapping gifts, letters and packages or crafting projects in general. Our favourite is definitely the red tape in the design of a Paris map. Gorgeous.

The cute Paris Washi tapes are our favourite product of the week.

This is our new mt Washi Masking Tape selection

This will be quite a long blog post, but we just have so much to show you. Now we offer mt Washi Masking Tapes from Japan in our shop and are so happy about it. The company mt just recently became one of our suppliers and we just love the quality and variety of their products. So check out all the new sets in our shop and be sure to watch that awesome video they made at the end of our post. It is such an inspiration!

First of all there are super pretty single tapes. Dots, crosses, diamonds, stripes, letters, they are all there. The colours are super intense and each tape is individually wrapped, so that they are well protected. We also got lots of wide single Washi masking tapes. There are quite a few different sizes and many designs with plants and animals – really great for all your spring craft projects.

We also ordered a lot of different Washi Tape sets with 2 pieces. They are really great if you want to vary a special design that you like a lot, as you get one design in two different colour variations or styles. They come in a handy bag. Also a lot of wide tapes are available in sets of two.

Single coloured Washi tapes are a great basic crafting material with a great visual effect. We now have a couple of single coloured sets in our shop. They come with 5 tapes in different colours and are wrapped in a plastic bag. There are combinations with darker colours or light colours.

5 Tapes with different patterns and different width. This is a great starter set, as you have so many different Washi tape options in just one set and can try lots of different things. But of course it is also a great combination for deco tape pros and a wonderful gift idea for people who like to craft.

A great and colourful gift box. We really like this set with 6 crazily patterned mt Washi Tapes. It’s so colourful and powerful. You get it in a pretty and decorative box, so it’s a wonderful present and you don’t have to worry about storage. This combination really allows you to create strong visual effects.

You’re a real Washi Tape fan? You will love these sets with 10 pieces. They are all single coloured and just beautiful. With one set you have a wonderful cadre of crafting essentials. We offer the pretty box with a light and a dark colour combination.

20 super slim Washi Tapes in one set. With this Washi Tape box you really have all the colours of the rainbow to craft with. The tapes are much slimmer than the regular Washi tapes, so they create a discrete but still colourful effect.

This is Washi tape of a different kind. The new Washi Seals sheets are a very beautiful decoration element. Each round label is individually embellished. A fast and incredibly pretty way to label glasses, boxes, shelves and much more. Of course you can write on the labels, detach them easily and reuse them.

Our favourite product of the week: Washi Tapes with labels

Guys, spring started already. At least the calendar says so. And isn’t that just the perfect time for a big spring cleaning? We just got something that will help you fight your chaos: Washi Masking Tapes with Labels from the Japanese company mt. We just added them a couple of days ago to our shop and think that they are just a great invention. Super pretty sticky labels that you can tear by hand and just write on. If you don’t want them anymore, remove them easily, if you want to put them somewhere else, just do it. So now you can label glasses, boxes, shelves and so on super fast. Maybe this will make cleaning more fun.

And as spring and summer are also the time to make jam yourself, why not use these pretty tapes to label all your glasses?

These Masking tapes are definitely our favourite product of the week.

1 Day until Valentine’s Day

Let’s face it, whatever we present you today on the Countdown for Valentine’s Day won’t make it to you on time for this ‘day of lovers’. Because it’s tomorrow. And if you don’t have a present by now, it’s about time that you make up your mind. So maybe it is necessary that you go for the classics. Like flowers – the mother of all Valentine’s Day gifts. But there are still ways to vary this evergreen. Give away flowers in a different style. Like for example in form of floral patterns on nice Washi Masking Tape or Deco Tape. You could also get a pretty flower fabric for your loved one? What about a colourful flower Bento Box? Your sweetheart will certainly appreciate a bunch of flowers of a creative kind.

New Deco and Washi Tapes in our shop

This week we got a fresh delivery of Washi Masking Tapes and Deco Tapes. Half  the boxes were filled with new stuff, like for example some new Washi Masking Tapes in very bright colours. Now we also have some really cute new Rilakkuma deco tapes with different designs in our shop. In addition to that we restocked some of the tapes that sold out very quickly, so if you have been waiting for favourite adhesive tape to come back, now is the time to check. We mainly restocked Washi Tapes, but quite a few big deco tapes as well.

New in our shop: cute paper deco tapes

We always have a lot of cute deco tapes in our shop. Now we ordered something new and hope you will like it. We got several really pretty paper deco tape sets from Japan. Each one consists of 4 paper tapes in different sizes and with different designs. The set even comes with a tape cutter, although you can also tear them by hand pretty easily. So they are really great for crafting and scrapbooking. What is the difference to Washi tape, you might ask. Washi Tape is a tape made of the Japanese Washi Paper and really easy to reposition and detach. This paper tape can most likely just be used once as you can’t detach it easily once you put it. We like it a lot and will add some more paper tapes during the next days and weeks. Which set is your favourite so far?

New Washi Masking Tapes in our shop

Today we added many new Washi Tapes to our shop, they are really pretty and have very beautiful patterns. A lot of them are striped, lined or checkered, but we also got funny designs like a Happy Birthday Tape or tape measure design. I also really like a purple one we got with a lot of blobs of paint, that’s a really funny design. Washi Masking Tape is really nice for scrapbooking or wrapping presents, as you can reposition it easily and also write on it. Check them out, we got them all from Japan.

Chinese Pool Challenge in the office

Today we got a Chinese Pool Table for our office and immediateley had to have a little game during our lunch break. Chinese Pool is very popular among teenagers and young people in Hong Kong and very similar to Pool Billard – it’s all about shooting little pucks into the 4 holes on the table using a cue. There are many different ways to play it and it’s really fun, as you learn it very fast. Even Bianca and I, who have never played it before, scored some points. We had a fun time playing it and had to drag ourselves back to work after lunch. But there is much to do at the moment, as we got new deliveries, e.g. new Japanese Washi Tapes, that we want to add to our online shop as soon as possible.
