Handmade Gift Box

September 24th, 2011

What if you would receive a gift box like this?? Maybe you don’t have such a lovely friend or boyfriend, I don’t 🙂 so why don’t do it by yourself?

It is a very simple procedure moreover I have made for you all templates and decorations to make it even easier!

What you need:

  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Bristol Board (choose your favorite color!)
  • Tissue paper
  • Glue

Step by Step:


Download the box template below, print it, cut it out and use it to get the same shape on your Bristol board. Fold it following the broken lines (use the ruler to help you).


Dowload the decorations and cut them. Choose the ones you prefer and paste them on each side of the box.


Once the glue is dry put it also on the flaps (the pink part in the box template).


Close the box and wait some seconds until the glue is dry.


Take the tissue and crumple it up, then put it in the box leaving the border outside.

That’s it. The box is ready!

Best Stage of Spring NYFW 2012 – Tadashi Shoji

September 19th, 2011

The New York fashion week for spring 2012 has ended, and even if we are already focused on what is happening in London I just want to dedicate a post to the designer that has captured me the most during the past week. I’ve seen the 90% of the stages but the feeling I had looking at these dresses has not occurred twice.

Maybe you have already recognized the designer from my collage entirely dedicated to his new Spring/Summer 2012 collection , if not, I just say his name Tadashi Shoji.

About the Designer:

Tadashi Shoji is the founder and chief designer of the Tadashi Shoji collection. He was born and raised in Japan. His love for design started in young age and eventually moved to Tokyo, where he studied fine art. During his apprenticeship with Japan’s leading contemporary artist, Jiro Takamatsu, he became intrigued with New York City and its role in the contemporary art scene. For this reason he moved to the United States to attend university in Los Angeles and further his artistic development. Here he discovered fashion design and awakened a life long passion.

Established in 1982 by designer, owner, and president Tadashi Shoji, the Los Angeles based fashion house Tadashi Shoji has become widely recognized for its original designs and innovative collections.

Tadashi also launched in 2006 the Tadashi Home Collection and in 2007 the Tadashi Shoji Runway collection during Fall New York Fashion Week.

His designs is loved by well dressed women worldwide, including several celebrities from Helen Mirren, Queen Latifah, Deborah Messing, Beyonce, and Blake Lively.

About the Collection:

Since the very first look, out in the runway, all you might think about are flowers, tulips.

Probably you have read this phrase many times in this days on blogs talking about the Tadashi Shoji Spring/Summer 2012 collection, but there is something more in this stage that captured my attention.

Every girl on the runway was beautiful and young. They actually were young and beautiful but also because the collection communicates us a sense of adolescence, sensuality and virginity, that makes them glow. The silk and tulle fabric make all dresses vanishing and ethereal, we were lost in a secret garden.
During all the stage, these light colors, the very fine fabrics and the white scenography brought us in a dream, one of those dreams that make you daydream for a while.
