New Papemelroti Branch in Glorietta!

May 1, 2012 marks not only Labor Day but the culmination of all the work done in moving to Papemelroti's newest branch in Makati!

This is the 5th move for us since 1988.  The first location was in Park Square, then Glorietta 2, then at the third floor (temporary stall) in Glorietta 3, then in the upper ground and now it's found at the 2nd floor walkway to SM.  

It's a bigger, brighter and better area for everyone to look through the latest items.

See Papemelroti owner and artist Robert Alejandro's whimsical forest paintings all over the shop!

Peekaboo, hoot is that peeping out of the trunk?

Here's artist Peggy fixing the kitchen wall decor.

 It's all finished!  Come and visit!

Here's a preview of our shop there.

Please take note: We'll still be in the upper ground level of Glorietta 3 until June 2012.

DIY Mother's Day Decor

Mother's day is just a few weeks away so now is the perfect time to plan how to best honor Mom!

Here's how we decorated our shops.  We make it a point to try to be kind to the earth by using paper instead of plastic materials.

It's an easy way to beautify Mom's celebration or to decorate a summer party!

Here's what you need:

wallpaper (you may purchase these online at or other paper is possible too)
old book paper
old sticks (toothpicks or barbecue sticks)
carbon paper (optional)

How to make it:

1. Let's start by making the curly wallpaper strands.  Cut wallpaper using this pattern. Save the image below by right-clicking and "Save as".  Print and trace.   (You can use carbon paper to trace or just sketch it copying the pattern.).  Cut along the lines in the swirl pattern to create the curly strands.

2. Let it hang from the ceiling.  If too short, make more and just attach another strand of the same color to make longer.

3. Make 3 per side with different colors.  Hang looping in intervals along a window, wall or door.  It's up to you which part of your home you wish to decorate.

4.  Let's make the Flowers by cutting the wallpaper into this shape using the carbon paper to trace.

5. Cut old book pages using this pattern below.  Make 2 or 3 strips of this.

6. Roll the cut magazine strips around a toothpick tightly.  This will form the "bud".
7. Attach another roll so it will look thicker.
8. Glue at the end.

9. Fluff the ends so it is like a pompom.

10. Attach to the flower center hole.

11. Print this sign and hang all around the house.  You can also make small flowers and attach around the oval banner.  You can also opt to decorate this banner with curly strands all around the border.

We would love it if you sent us pictures of your home with this decor!  Feel free to comment below about this DIY project and what other crafts you want featured here.
