Instagram featuring Japanese Crafts

I’ve just made an instagram account to feature my handmade crafts such as wash dolls and origami. I’ll also post more craft related photos and my DIY projects. It’s always my passion to do crafts, and also to create kawaii (super cute) Japanese style illustrations.

If you are an instagrammer, let’s connect.

Origami Windmill

Looks simple, but actually it’s kinda difficult to make. You will need to know how to twist & squash the paper (to do step 2)

How to make japanese washi doll (Temari Girl)

Let’s make washi doll!! Fun to do, and the doll looks pretty :) You can mount your doll onto a cardstock, and you’ll have a uniqe gift card!

Ok, let’s start!

You will need:
– washi paper (patterned). washi is japanese silkscreen paper
– mingei paper (plain washi)
– cardboard (white)
– crepe paper (black)
– fancy paper (red). this will be for the small ribbons

Optional:
You can add flat cotton/foam to the following parts:
– body (cardboard)
– right & left sleeve (cardboard)
– ball (cardboard)
It will create a dimensional effect. Just mount the cotton/foam to the cardboard.

About TEMARI:
Temari is a japanese folk game. The word literally means ‘hand’ (te) and ‘ball’ (mari). It is an ancient japanese folk art dating back more than 500 years.
