Make: Kawaii Tokyo Cut & Paste Bag!

After reading observing countless amounts of Japanese magazines & craft books I just had to channel my inspiration into a little creative project on the weekend- A Kawaii Tokyo Cut & Paste Bag!

I basically just pulled out my box containing all sorts of scrap bits of paper, j-mag cut-outs....and lots of Mt tape!
I also used stickers created from scans from when I made some confetti bows, doilies and some pink heart bubble wrap that came with one of my UGUisU purchases.
I enjoy playing around with Mt tape, arranging them in different angles alongside each other or using triangle whole punches- I also created a Mt tape bow using two triangles.

Rather then just use the confetti I started to use the remaining bits of paper with the punched out wholes, this has been interesting to play with...I'm working on making a city out of them alone :)

Japan are really big on recycling and with their amazing Japan packaging it's no wonder they like to make stationary and gift tags using used Japan packaging. I just bought a book on it from amazon Japan that I will review in a upcoming post. Below you can see I made a gift tag from a Japan smarties box!

Hope you like and enjoy a video of my latest craft project!

You are totally rocking this video-making thing! This bag is good enough as a gift! You don't have to fill it with anything.
