ow-weeee#@%!..stop twisting my arm...arrgghhh...I confess...I confess to having 2 Christmas stocking kits, a humpty dumpty kit (that will be so cute if ever made), a cherry bead ornament kit, and a strawberry pincushion kit. I'm hopeless.
So it's no surprise that I bought yet another kit from a local Japanese store. But THIS one is so kawaii. It's a Japanese paper craft kit that uses paper patterned with fabric designs like gingham.
...and LOOK SEE I actually finished it!!!
This kit is a simple cut and 'paste' project so it wasn't that hard..heh. The biggest challenge is cutting out those little birds. I ended up with shoulder pains. Ugh.
The tools for this project : a stylus, a foam cushion, and double stick dimensional tape. This is how the stylus is used to add dimension to the leaves and hearts :
I like learning different craft techniques. But if I'm ever to do one of these from scratch, I will definitely find paper punches for the small pieces.
I found the maker of these kits online...sankakuya.net.
Here's one of their other kits. So So So So CUTE.
