WRMK Alphabet Punch Board: Thank you, The Crafters Marketplace!

This is probably one of every crafters dream, to win a crafting tool especially if it's from We R Memory Keepers.

October last year, I joined a giveaway by The Crafters Marketplace. The prize was supposedly a WRMK Mini Alphabet Punch Board but as the item was about to be shipped, I was given a chance to choose whether I'd like to have the mini or the bigger one - and I choose the latter.

the back of the package

When I got the packaged, I never thought it would be heavy and this big; the measurement including the packaging is 12x10 inches, and the tool itself is 11.25x7.25 inches, definitely bigger than your regular textbook. It is also quite heavy as expected because of the metal for two puncher mechanism attached on the board.

this is how it looked like under the ABC Punch Board

Now let's check what's included on the package.

The We R Memory Keepers Alphabet Punch Board includes:

🗸 The ABC Punch Board - this where all the measurement, cutting, and punching done to form your plain paper into an alphabet of your choice.

🗸  Blade - used to cut your 3x5 inches paper by sliding it through it's cutting guide.

🗸  Instruction Manual - this booklet contains guides for each alphabet and numbers, including exclamation point and ampersand. This instruction booklet can also be downloaded for free from the Android or Apple App Store.

step-by-step guide on how to punch an alphabet

I tried a few letters to punch and as promised on my giveaway entry, I punched my daughter's name, IZZA. 

This punch board is perfect for creating banners, paper crafting, and more. There also a few projects you can do with this ABC Punch Board which is not limited to alphabets and numbers only. I was able to make a bow and punched a 3" circle from this tool. I will soon make a short post on how I did it. So watch out for it!

And to my giveaway sponsor, The Crafters Marketplace, thank you so much for picking me to house this lovely WRMK tool. I'll make sure to use it and create more craft projects that my daughter will surely enjoy! Thank you!

Quick Stop at Miniso

I finally had a chance to visit Miniso when I was in Cebu for the holidays and satisfied my curiosity on "what's inside" their store.

The moment I went in I noticed how bright their store is and I was amazed on how neatly organized their shelves are according to categories. I also like the minimalist appeal of their products which made me feel I'm in Tokyo.

So I looked over and see if I can find something to give for Christmas. Luckily I have found some for my friend, cousin, daughter, and of course, for my self.

Miniso Haul

Miniso Micro Particles Building Blocks - We Bare Bears (Php179), Panda (Php99), and Violin (Php149)

This is the tiniest blocks I've ever seen!

Minio Loose-Leaf Book / Planner - Php99 each

Miniso Planner Stickers - 2 for Php99
There are 6 Sheets per pack, If I only knew I would've gotten a different design for the other one.

Miniso Adhesive Hook - Php99

Miniso Magic Slimming Massager - Php99

At this point, there were only a few stocks left on some of their items. I would've anted to get wallets and pouches too but there were only a few design to choose from. I'll just check on Miniso again the next time we'll be back in Cebu.
