Crafts: Gift Wrapping

Last week, I was privileged enough to be invited to be a guest of a local TV show.
I did a live gift wrapping demo last December 16 for Unang Hirit's special feature.
The thought of it was nerve wracking. It was my first time to appear on tv and its live on national tv to be seen all over the country.

But I didn't let my anxiety get the better off me. I just pretended to be a demure girl to conceal how nervous I was. LOL.

Anyway, we were not allowed to take photos inside the studio so we just took a couple of photos outside.
I wish I can provide the link to the episode but until now I don't have it. If you do find it, please send me the link :)

Non-Traditional Gift Wrapping
Used Recycled and Reusable materials.

Used old news paper, paper doyle and ribbon 

Didn't get to bring this with me.
Mail inspired gift wrapping

Lyn Ching wrapped this one

 Lyn Ching's favorite, "The Maglalayas Wrap"

Used Slurpee Paper Cups and felt cloth to embellish it.
Perfect for wrapping Toys

Kraft Paper, Lace and Used Hair Band

This is my favorite, an alternative packaging for perfumes without boxes.
Old Slurpee Paper Cup, Newspaper and Paper Doyle

Instead of writing their name down, make it more personalized by using letter cut outs.

Hope you got ideas on how to wrap your gifts

Craft Feature: Camera Lovers Cellphone Pouch

I love photography and so I am attracted to items with camera theme. I particularly love this felt camera designed cellphone pouch by Artwine

So if you have photographer friends, I'm sure you are having a hard time finding photography related gifts because they are pricey. With just Php250.00 you can make your friend smile with this item without burning a hole in your pocket.

Craft Feature

Aside from sunshines and starlights, crafts make this world one pretty place.
Being a creative soul, I believe it is my duty to share every lovely craft that I stumble upon.

So I will dedicate some time every week to bring you pretty crafts and that will surely inspire you to create your own. If you do have your own craft, please feel free to send it to me so I can feature it too.

Blog Love: FikaFikaFika


Borrowed this greeting from Liarns of FikaFikaFika.
I met her with her partner during the Brown Bag Vintage and Crafts Market.

I love all the items they were selling that day.
I also love their blog!

They are also the official distributor of Frankie Magazine here in the Philippines.
How cool is that!

According to Liarns, Fika Fika Fika is a curation of things that we love.  It is for the dreamers and the curious. We’re starting small, but who knows maybe we’ll have that small corner coffee shop that we have been dreaming of starting one day.

Fika (fee-ka) is that wonderful Swedish past time that involves taking a break  and getting together with friends, co-workers or family  and chatting over coffee, tea, cakes, pastries or sandwiches. We are guilty of this past time, and none of us are even Swedish! Having Fika was simply our means of enjoying a short getaway from work and our mundane daily activities.

Let's all Fika!

Blog Love

Oh how I miss blogging, especially about crafts and other quirky stuff. 
So I am reviving this blog. Yehey!

Since I can't blog about my crafts yet (I am still in the process of organizing my creative space). I thought of blogging about other people's wonderful quirky blogs!

So every Tuesday, I will be posting a blog feature about my favorite arts and craft blogs.
So stick around!
