We’re finishing off this anniversary celebration week for The Super Cute Book of Kawaii with some crafts and free printables.
DIY Donut Garland
There are 4 easy DIY tutorials in the book for a donut garland, fabric hair bows, pompom animals and a jewellery display board, plus recipes for unicorn toast, apple bunnies and rainbow cupcakes. The donut garland has lots of options to copy and is really customisable for your own ideas – here’s one Nicolette made.
Nicolette: I was looking for a kawaii decoration to brighten up the boring blank wall above my bed so decided to make the donut garland! I love cute characters so chose some of my favourites to make into donuts including Hello Kitty, Rilakkuma, Riceananas by Noodoll and SCK’s own Bunny. As it’s the one year anniversary of the Super Cute Book of Kawaii I also made one of Mogu, the adorable blue character on the cover. It was a really fun project and I’m really happy with my cute donut garland!
Free Printables For Crafts & Journaling
I’ve also made a set of printable patterns that you can use for origami, happy mail, journaling, crafts and more.There’s 4 to choose from – see if you can spot them all in the book. Each PDF is A4 size but your printer can resize for other sizes including US Letter. I’ve also included a blank envelope template. Just put the printed paper back in your printer and print the template file on top – or print on any patterned or coloured paper in your stash.
These patterns were for July 2020 only and are no longer available, sorry.
If you make something from The Super Cute Book of Kawaii or using these printables, please tag your pics with @sckawaii on Instagram and Twitter and we’ll share our favourites.
