Kawaii Valentines heart with secret message!


Hello Cuties, Well its February and that means Valentines day.
So when you are stuck for ideas and want to make them Kawaii you have come to the right place.


So, I was feeling creative and make a Kawaii idea, I also am feeling the lows of having to save for my camera and did not want to spend much money on St. Valentines Day. Also I wanted to make my gift personal to my loved one.So here is a How to make a Valentines Heart with a secret message!

All you need for this idea is a few Craft supplies and with miss chibi bean having an abundance of '' Makes things'' as she calls it , I had the following at hand...Origami Paper, Stick on Gems and left over Christmas ribbon, the one that looks so neat and pretty on gifts but is a nightmare to take off to get to unwrapping your christmas gifts . You will also need a hole puncher too.



So step 1~ is the tricky part and takes a bit of time here~

Making a Origami Heart I made a double sided one which can be found Here!! So you would make one of these with your Origami paper (or coloured paper cut to size.)


Step 2~Take the hole punch and make a hole

Step 3~  Thread the ribbon or gift wrap ribbon through the hole and make a bow.

Step 4~ Use a Sticky Gem or other decorative item and stick it on the bow to secure it.

Step 5~ Add a small piece of paper with your message on it , slide it into the folds of the heart to keep it safe and taaa-daaa!

You have a small kawaii love heart with a secret message for a loved one or admirer. 
Chhuuuu!!



These are just so Kawaii!!







I also have some more Kawaii Valentines ideas that I shall post up next time!

Stay Kawaii!

Traditional Kawaii Review

Hello every one!
I have got a post for you today, am still unwell but I have more up and kawaii go to get this post done, This is a small haul of some Origami items I got in the post.
Its a small shop online called J-Wow found here on Facebook and here is the link to the Online shop.
I made a small order last week and it came in like 2 days after,The best thing was the free shipping 
Which was a great bonus, I ordered a cute pair of earrings and a charm. They do a lovely traditional range of handmade goods and worth checking out even the traditional side of Japan can be super cute!



Crane Bottle Charm

The charm is a corked small bottle with tiny stars and a tiny kawaii pink origami Crane inside! It comes on a large ball chain to use to attach your charm to which ever you wish too.
So tiny and cute!




Kawaii Red Origami Butterflies

I got my self these Origami Butterfly earrings with have 2 tiny beads at the top of the Butterflies and then the earring piece, because these are Origami they are so light to wear, They are a nice size too.
I plan to wear these with my kimono outfit for this years Hyper Japan!  Are these not just little Darlings and so unusual! 



Is this Doll not just Kawaii!

With my order, I also got a free gift with is a Japanese Origami Doll. She is so cute I have her on my unit propped up against my Clear Quartz Crystal and so far am in hope she will bring me good luck! Also Friday is the Chinese new year so maybe she can bring me some luck with that hehe! I need all the luck I can get with all my on- going projects.
So I am going to put up some Chinese decorations up in honour for the Chinese new year since I won them in a give away and they are to pretty not to use ! They are Hello Kitty ones!

Any way getting back to my post review, J-Wow is a lovely little online shop and I would recommend you check out what they have to offer and take advantage of the free shipping. It was a pleasure to shop with them.

Origami lets make it cute.

Origami is the art from Japan of paper folding, ori meaning "folding", and kami meaning "paper" (kami changes to gami due to rendaku).I have been admiring the art since a small girl and only this year bought a starter kit to learn to make some.I through myself in the deep end and attempted advanced projects...My hope faded as my cranes looked like mush and my flowers looked like paper aeroplanes.

However like the Amigurumi,I kept trying over and over with scrap paper,then like the Amigurumi it clicked in place(maybe I was from Japan in my before life.....)Eventually I made a crane and was overjoyed after that,I went looking on the net for more things to make.
