Sorry that I haven't kept up with blogs recently. I spent a week in Honolulu and the laptop was not functioning well at the hotel. I read some of your posts on my iphone but didn't do much commenting. I'll try to catch up. Anyway, I popped into the Celebrations store (a few doors down from the Mapunapuna Ben Franklin Crafts) to see what new stuff had arrived. I purchased some new treat/lunch bags and more raffia ribbon. I also noticed the store is now selling some instructions for gift wrapping. I got the one for making the crane package (featured on the Joy of Crafting channel 12 Sunday 6:30 pm) and it was only 99 cents!
Also at the Celebrations store are super cute Halloween treat bags, stickers, and printed tapes. Even though trick-o-treaters don't stop at my house, I do plan to make some goodie bags to give to friends. The Japanese graphics on the Halloween products are so 'kawai' and as I mentioned last year, the Japanese are really starting to celebrate the playfulness of Halloween. Finally, check out the Celebration store for gift wrapping inspiration and you can even pick up some FREE instruction sheets like the one I got for making a baby onesie card carrier. Happy crafting and gift giving!
