With Keroppi’s birthday coming up tomorrow on July 10, I thought I’d celebrate by finding some of my favorite craft tutorials featuring Sanrio’s cutest frog.
The Sanrio website has loads of goodies like wallpapers and printables, including a 3D Keroppi paper craft that looks quick and easy to make.
Marceline’s note: I made one to see what it would look like! It’s quite fiddly to do but stands up well.
For a more challenging option, Folding Happiness has a 3D origami Keroppi tutorial that would be a cute desk mate when it’s finished. (The link to the tutorial for the individual 3D origami pieces are also linked in the description.)
There are also lots of cute Keroppi-themed recipes if you prefer to bake, like these adorable pull-apart Keroppi buns from Fun Cooking with Yackikuka. They’re definitely insta-worthy!
And if you want something sweet without the need to bake, Bembum Kitchen’s no-bake Keroppi cake pops would impress anyone eating them. There are lots of no-bake cake pop recipes out there, so you could always customize the flavor too.
You can also follow Ochikeron’s Keroppi bento tutorial to make yourself a fun and healthy lunch. Kawaii bento is a great way to include a little pick-me-up in the middle of a stressful work or school day.
To bring a little bit of Keroppi style with you wherever you go, you can always make yourself a crochet Keroppi coin purse (try saying that that five times fast!) using Make A Paper Boat’s tutorial. This is another smaller project that would be a good choice for a beginner to crochet.
Yuu Creations has a fun and simple tutorial for an air dry clay Keroppi that’s excellent for beginners and could easily be attached to a keychain or bag charm.
The Skymagenta Craft channel has a needle felt Keroppi DIY video that’s great if you’re looking for a detailed project; it is step-heavy, so I think it would work best for crafters that have had some experience with needle felting, rather than complete beginners.
Keroppi is also July’s Friend of the Month at Sanrio USA. Download a free printable calendar now and look out for more DIYs on their blog.
Andi lives in the countryside of Georgia in a house packed with kawaii decor and vintage toys. When she’s not barricaded in her pink craft room creating something, she can be found reading, playing Animal Crossing games, or baking something to satisfy her massive sweet tooth. Andi is currently taking a mental health break, but hopes to be back in 2023.
