Mini Paper Bag Collection!

Having added the first 2 items from above, there are now quite a few numbers of small paper bags/envelopes in the shop. Some of these mini envelopes are called "pochibukuro" and they are used to put in (usually small amount of) money to give someone for showing our gratitude. But these little envelopes would be great for organizing small objects like buttons, seeds, collected tickets, stamps etc, or put in some small items to give friends as a gift! You can find them all here.

Masking Tape Fun Packs!

I now have more masking tapes newly added and restocked to my shop, only on the single roll category there are so many to choose from. Sometimes it's hard to decide which ones to get, isn't it. So I made a new category called "fun packs" and listed some combo packs that I made with my recommended pairs or sets. I hope you will enjoy!

New Wide Border Masking Tapes.

Have you checked these new wide border masking tapes that were added to my shop a week ago? Quite a few have already been sold and I've been using them myself but they are really sweet! Perfect for packing, sealing and decorating envelopes and packages. Each tape is more than double the width of the normal masking tapes. Which colour is your favourite??
