Fabulous Find Friday — Hanko Washi Floral Art

I have two Fabulous Finds from Hanko Designs. I first fell in love with Hanko Designs through their lovely Asian stamps. Then they brought in beautiful papers. And kits. The latest kit is Washi Floral Art.

Kits include instructions, patterns, floral wire and stamen. You provide your favorite paper and card stock. See the pretty cards behind Hanko owner Norm Yoshida? Those are some examples of what you can do.

The other Fab Find is a dimensional foam square that comes in teeny tiny pieces. You know how hard it is to cut foam tape when you need a small piece? Well, fret no more! These bitty things, called Stix 2 Anything double sided craft foam pads, measure a wee 1/8 of an inch. They are not very thick, but give just enough lift for tiny pieces. They come on a sheet and are best removed using the tip of a craft knife. I will try to post a photo later.

The Stix are not on the website, but contact Hanko at www.hankodesigns.com.
