Uguisu store (Japan)
One of my favourite place to purchase Japanese books, magazines & mt tapes is Hiki's Uguisu online store (located Tokyo, Japan). Not only are they way cheaper to buy here rather then in stores, it also only takes a few days to arrive and they all come uniquely wrapped in Japanese paper & mt tape!
I bought some Japan, Paris inspired Scrapbook books as well as some mt tapes. I have to put some of them back until Christmas though.
Purchasing from UGUiSU, is worth it just to see and receive such beautiful gift wrapping!
Hiki has wrapped up my buys in beautiful Japanese paper as well as PINK HEART BUBBLE WRAP!!- Only in Japan! They were also sealed with a selection of the latest stocked UGUiSU mt tapes; Little Garden, Decorative Purple & Blue Dotted
I love the Japanese Editions de Paris craft book series, If you like Japanese Paumes books, you will love these! I got a copy of their latest papercraft book; Parisienne: Craft making with paper & masking tape. Parisienne features french artists from Paris; Adeline Klam, Sofia Antonvich, Fifi Mandirac and Emilie Capman. They give us a glimpse into their studios and a look at their materials as well as 'how to's' on paper & mt tape projects, which include; decorative envelopes, pouches, pull-out cards, notebooks, bags. All made using paper, mt tapes and souvenirs. Templates and some papers shown in the examples are also included in the back. Parisienne: Craft making with paper & mt tape, has become my fave papercraft book!
These books; Collage with masking tapes & Scrapaholic books have been put away until Christmas- so no peeking yet!
