Do you also struggle to keep yourself properly hydrated? Some days I only manage to drink 2 glasses of water instead of the recommended 8 cups. I found some kawaii water trackers, that will hopefully help me to drink enough!
With this kawaii water glass sticker you can track your water intake for the entire week. It’s available as a sticker sheet from a Happy Blue Tree with 8 glasses in total.
If you’d rather have a hydration tracker for each day, then these happy water bottle stickers will help you out. They come in a set of 9 at Busy Bee Stickers.
If your bedroom could do with a bit of kawaii glam, you need to check out the new Hello Kitty x PBteen collection.
The whole collection is right on trend with a blush pink, ivory, white and black colour scheme plus plenty pops of shiny gold. It’s a big collection too with everything from bedding and lighting to organisation and decorations.
My personal favourite is this bean bag of Hello Kitty’s head with a giant gold bow. Perfect for lounging around. There’s loads more fun stuff though including a lamp, mirror, sleeping bag and a portable speaker that looks just like a plush toy!
The Hello Kitty x PBteen collection is available online now and in stores next month with prices ranging from $16 to $279. It’s only available in the USA and in a stunningly mean move, EU residents are blocked from even viewing the website to look at all the photos! I’m not sure Hello Kitty would approve. If you’d like to see more photos, Hello Kitty Junkie has shared them all on Instagram.
Not too long ago I found myself on the hunt for some new and original ways to use my ever-growing stationery collection, and I ended up discovering several Japanese YouTube tutorials that definitely help fill the cute scrapbooking void. While the videos do only include Japanese subtitles, they are shot clearly and in a manner that makes it very easy to follow along with, even if you can’t read Japanese.
A video from Fromegg shows you how to make a cute memo set storage folder. I like how you can use this method to make several, and organize them by different themes or characters! This would also be a cute way to gift or trade stationery as well.
Most of this list consists of the ASMR videos by Nattsun, just because she has so many great ones. While it’s a bit on the longer side, she has a thorough tutorial on how to make a paper storage file using an A4 envelope and lots of paper findings!
Nattsun also has tutorials on how to make several different sticker storage albums. This one works well if you have a moderate amount of sticker flakes or small sheets.
…However, if you need a larger book that can hold full sticker sheets as well as flakes, she has a video on how to make larger sticker storage file book that can store both! This would also be a great way to store memo sheets and stationery, too.
She also has a video on how to make an easy “slipper” file – this would be a cute alternative to pocket pages for stationery trades, or even a sentimental gift by adding cute notes or photos!
If you enjoy papercrafts, there’s also a large variety of papercraft DIYs to check out in the DIY Crafts section!
