Yellow & Green Paper Ribbon

My first trial on paper bow - Yellow paper bow ribbon inspired by pink polka paper ribbon from When you're damn stressed  at your workstation, what you should do is simply find any waste paper around you and start cutting and folding. I found this used yellow paper and tear it with ruler because I'm lazy to use the scissor. My yellow paper ribbon looks different from the tutorial (below) because I didn't cut into different length of strips. That's what you'll get if you don't cut into different length. 

For the green ribbon, it was a random one, you can just fold over each other (the strips of papers) and form as many loops as you want. Pinch the center part with a tape or stapler and cover center of the ribbon with another paper. That's the easiest paper ribbon that you can do instantly. Make an upside-down V-shape for the bow tail and attach it to the back of the ribbon. Voila!

Chinese Wedding Invitation Wording & A Thank You Note

I made the thank you tag above to express my gratitude/thanks to my translator (who is probably sitting staring her PC at her work hub now) :p  

The "Thank You Tag" was made with two types of art card/paper and was cut with craft scissors. Photo was taken with Samsung Notes (with photo background edited with Pixlr-o-matic : Hagrid,Barock,Flowery)

So, a big THANK YOU to Ms. Claudia C.H.H. for the help and effort in the completion of my DIY wedding invitation card. This chinese illiterate girl here couldn't have made this without your chinese characters! Don't worry, you will receive the invitation soon~

Embrace Your Pen & Paper

 Random fonts I saw and I drew it on a paper. Tadaa! To add more fun, you can 'cut out' the alphabets/words from your photo editor software. Arrange the alphabets to your liking to get something like in the second photo.

It's very easy and I did this using Paint.NET. It's downloadable for free at  

Paint.NET is a free image and photo editing software for computers that run Windows. It features an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools.  (source:

Basically, it's like the basic MS Paint in Windows but with more features and has grown into a powerful photo editor tool. The software is often been compared with Adobe® Photoshop®, Corel® Paint Shop Pro®, Microsoft Photo Editor, and The GIMP.
