Painted Meditations Workshop

These delightful ladies just finished their pages full of inspiration!

Patricia "Patsy" Alejandro Paterno shared her techniques for painting life-like images.  The participants were encouraged to use these steps to express your thoughts and reflections for the day.

The technique got them to almost instantly make beautiful images on top of text.

Everyone's art came out really well, thanks to some enthusiastic learners!

See you at the next workshop!

Make it Special

We've been personalizing products for half a century now!  That's a lot of products made just for you!  Weddings, christenings, birthdays, you name the event and we have probably made specially made items for it!

Free Family Game

How many times have we had family gatherings where everyone is sitting in the same place but have all of our noses buried in a gadget?  We may be letting precious bonding time get away by virtually ignoring each other.  So let's do something to while away the time in a creative way and build treasured memories!

Instead of spending at least P1.000 on a new board game, why not make one yourself?  Doing the project together will also be a crafty challenge that everyone can participate in!

The game will have you coming up with some wacky looking faces.  You don't have to stick to the eyes, noses and ears we have made, you can add your own!

Once you've played this game, you can also print another set of face parts and use these to decorate your face!


Big metal can - We used a can of coffee with a space for 6.5 inch height x 19 inch width label.

Thin magnet sheets or little magnet pieces

Glue gun - or white glue should be ok.


Colorful paper - cartolina is big enough to cover the can - and you can choose whichever colors you like.  You can also download the background of the can we made here

White Marker - if you don't have this, you can just use colorful paper to delineate the face borders.

Foam or Cardboard - If you have magnet sheets on hand, you can paste the face parts on to the magnet sheets themselves so you don't have to get the foam/cardboard.

Face Parts - Download the face parts here


Step 1.
Start with a clean can.  Measure the size of the surface so you know how much paper you need to cut.

Step 2.
Paste the colorful paper onto your can using white glue or the glue gun.

Step 3.
Cut out small ovals of different colors and paste to the sides of the labels and then outline with white marker.  You can leave out the outlines if you can't find the white markers.

Step 4.
Download the face parts file and print out.

Step 5.
Cut out the face parts and attach to foam or cardboard to make them sturdier.  If you have magnet sheets, attach them directly on to the sheets and then neatly cut around the face parts to form the game pieces.

Step 6.
Attach the face parts to small magnets if magnet sheets are not available.  Now you are ready to play!

Let's Play!


Face parts

Game Mechanics:

  1. Put all the game parts on top of the can.  People can look at the parts they like and try to memorise where they're at.

  2. Everybody blindfold themselves.  No cheating.

  3. Everyone puts their hand on the can and turn it around clockwise for a duration of 5 seconds.  Take care not to let the parts fall off at the top.  If they fall, it will be part of the game to hunt for them!

  4. Once the can stops, people can get the face parts they want and stick on to the can!

  5. When everyone is done, you can all remove your blindfolds and see what happened to the face you made! 

You don't have to do this game all together as well.  You can do it one at a time.  Be sure to take photos of the nicest faces done!

Please do let us know if you liked this project and leave us comments on what you want us to feature next!

Free Downloadable Dingbats

We love fonts!  Don't you?  Sometimes creatives get to the point where their computers stop working due to an overload of fonts!  Don't go there!  But seriously, fonts can date or make your designs and they are constantly changing to keep up with the times.

We also love dingbats!  They make designs all the more appealing!  They are instant little drawings to insert into your letters, stationery and invitations to add more character to the look.  Sometimes you don't even notice they are there but they actually contribute a great deal into making your art work into something more special.

We are offering 2 free dingbats just for you!  These are limited offers so hurry!



Sorry!  This offer has expired.


This giveaway is available only until
12pm (Manila Time) on

March 12, 2018

These dingbats are free for personal or commercial use!!!  Isn't that great?

We hope that you enjoy using these dingbats.  Feel free to send us your work so we can feature them too!  Sharing is caring!

Which Notebook is Right for Me?

Papemelroti notebooks come in a lot of different designs and sizes.  Now we even offer a lot of blank kraft notebooks and materials due to the booming interest of Filipino artists and crafters with DIY and handmade things.

The first notebook was reportedly produced in 1888 and despite centuries passing, modernization and computerization of documents, the notebook is still primarily what we use today for jotting down notes and ideas.

So, unbeknownst to all, Papemelroti inside pages are not all the same.  They have different styles and usages.  Pick which one is best for you using our guide below...

See what's available now

Kraft Blanks Inspiration Board

This feature is about YOU!  We are so proud of what you've done with Papemelroti craft materials and want to share your work to the world and get more people inspired!  

@biennetiful used a white Uniball Signo pen to make this charming cactus design on Papemelroti Kraft paper.

Look at this simple, understated yet artsy wall hanging by @weednonah.  Notice the innovative way she emphasizes the stylish calligraphy with clean cut elements.  She ingeniusly engineered an interchangeable wall decor like this is made with a few clothespins, twine and paper.  Add a few more frames and you already get elegant decor for a party.  This technique can also be made into a greeting card or a gift postcard!

We love the torn effect that @jomiladrielle used on this project.  With a liner brush in hand, she made these name cards for an event.  Cool huh?

@breathingletters has great skill in sketching!  Here she generously shares what materials she uses - Unipin 0.6, Pentel Fude Touch, Zig Cocoiro, Sakura glaze white and Daiso brushpen.  She also sells her work online.

Have you ever tried embroidery on paper?  This could be your instant personalized gift!  Great idea and craftsmanship by @tinahisapapel 

@casem.adrienne is so creative!  She used Papemelroti kraft pads to make bookmarks!  Anyone can make these!  Even if you're not into lettering and calligraphy, you can make a keepsake for a friend.  So affordable too!

Thank you so much for using Papemelroti raw materials for your projects!  Keep them coming!

Get these products at Papemelroti shops and at the Artisan's Workshop.
