How to : Make your own Washi Tape Holder


Today I'll be sharing with you, a DIY project that I did recently. It's a DIY washi tape holder!

I have realised that my washi collection have been growing & I have used up all my small transparent containers to store my stickers. Where, then do I store these washi tapes? So, this has prompted me to come up with a DIY project to store my washi tapes. I don't want a usual storage box but rather something that is different and at the same time making sure my washi tapes are visible (for easy access) yet presentable hehe. 

So, here are the 'ingredients' that you will need to make this washi tape holder.

1. An old & unused chopstick or you can use the disposable ones that you get for free each time you tapau (takeaway) noodles from the Chinese hawker stall.

2.  Used jar lid

3. Washi tapes

4. Ribbon (small size)

5. Hot glue gun / strong glue

6. Embellishments such as buttons, sequins etc

The main ingredients are simply just an old/disposable chopstick & a used jar lid.

Firstly, take your favourite washi tape and "washi" the jar lid and take your ribbon of choice and wrap it around the chopstick & use the hot glue gun to bind it.

Once you have got that done, get that hot glue gun and adhere the chopstick to the middle of the 'washi-ed' jar lid. Let it dry completely and then you're ready to embellish it. I used some rickracks, buttons & sequins as my embellishments.

Lastly, gather all your washi tapes & arrange them into the holder. 
Viola! It's done!

And there you have it, a DIY washi tape holder! You can make more of these holders and arrange your washi tapes according to colours or prints for each holder and let them sit pretty on your craft table! How cute is thaaat!

Thank you for stopping by & I hope you'll give this super easy DIY a try!

Much love,

Planner Addict : Week 1 - June

Good Monday morning! 💕

Hope you had a great weekend! And let's start the week with positive vibes! 😄

I am sharing with you my planner layout for the 1st week of June. We in Sarawak, Borneo celebrate the harvest festival on 1st June, each year. So I was back home for the Harvest Festival holidays, which we call Hari Gawai. It was really great being home and on holiday! Yiippee! There were lots of preparations being made for Hari Gawai..the shopping, baking, cooking, cleaning etc etc..whooh! But as tiring as it may sound, it was lots of fun because you get to spend time with family.😍 Well, enough of my Gawai story..Lol! Here's my planner layout for the Gawai week.

I mainly used my floral & leaf pattern washi tapes & I still haven't gotten over the calligraphic writing craze, hehe! It's a very simple & clean layout. 
My hands were itching to add more stuff but I held myself back and told myself to be OK with the blank spaces..Lol! 

Here's to a great week ahead! 

Til my next post, stay awesome & be blessed!

Much love,

Wedding Bells!

Wedding bells are ringing! 💝🔔

I've received an order from a friend to make a handmade wedding card and I made one to give to my dear friend, Diana who got married recently. Both are tall sized cards but with different themes. 😄

For the handmade wedding card order, I was given a theme of gold & white. So, I went for a more regal look.

As for my friend's wedding card, I went for a more sweet & floral theme. She is a very sweet person and the month of May reminds me of flowers in bloom & all things pastel, hehe. And thus, this card reflects all those elements 😊

Til my next post, thanks for stopping by! 

Have a great & productive day ahead! 😍

Much love,

Planner Addict : Week 1 - May


Happy Tuesday, everyone!

I know this post is a lil' behind..LOL! But I would want to share it, anyway. 😄

This was my planner layout for Week 1 of May. It was quite a pretty busy week. Heck, the past weeks prior to this were pretty hectic as well. 😅

I had two friends getting married on the same day, which was on 6th May and the weddings were at two in Miri & the other in Kuching! Had preparations to do, coupled with my office work & family matters in the span of that week..whooh! It was quite a ride, hahaha! 

I kept my layout pretty simple, using stamps, stickers & washi tape. I still enjoy writing the calligraphic handwriting style for my quotes & sentiments. Still improving myself on that, hehe.

I hope you find this post inspiring & gives you ideas on how you can embellish your own layout for your weekly planner!

Do share your ideas with us too! We would love to hear about them!

Have a great week ahead!

Much love 💕

I've got the blues..

On some days when you feel a little blue, you just need a lil “pick-me-up” to help brighten your day..and sometimes, that very colour helps you lift your mood. That’s what happened when I did this card.  The moment I finished making the card & looked at that blue glitter paper, a sense of calm & bliss came over me. Sighh.. And it reminded me of that Korean drama, I’ve watched recently…The Legend of the Blue Sea. Yes, I’m sooo into k-drama these days! They have been my instant “pick-me-ups”. I just can’t get enough! I can truly understand how people can get addicted to it! Hahaha! Aigooo!

Well, enough of me & my k-drama confession (LOL!), here’s my creation…a gatefold, half A4-sized, engagement card...

It’s time for me to get back to my instant pick-me-up! 👀 💻 Hahaha!

Til then, have a great day & just remember, whenever you feel a little blue, give yourself some time-out and go to your instant pick-me-up & feel better! 

Annyeong! 💕

Much love,

Hats off to the graduate!

Hello there! How have your week gone?

I am sharing with you a graduation card I made last month. It was a longg overdue blog post hahaha! 

Anyway, this is a graduation card I made, that was ordered by a friend of mine. Her friend had her graduation ceremony and she wanted to give her a handmade card to mark the special occassion! 

The alphabet cut-outs are from my die-cut alphabet set. The pink & white sentiment is from a craft pack that I bought from Mr DIY. It was a quick & easy one. I guess my creative juices were flowing pretty nicely that day haha! Well, on some days, when those juices doesn't seem to come out right, a simple card could take hours to make & you end up being so exhausted..LOL! Oh well, we have our good & bad days, don't we? ;)

That's all from me today! Thank you for visiting! I hope you find our blog inspiring & fun!

Have a great day!

Much love,
