So, I made this.

My dear friend Samancha was in town for the Creators Market (more on this later) and with her being the purikura expert she is (Check out her blog. It's awesome.) we went to a purikura shop that opened in one of the department stores in Sakae (a major shopping district here in Nagoya).

When we got there, there happened to be a deco card event.

You take purikura and you get to decorate a card for free. A table was set up with scissors, markers, ribbon, stickers, masking tape, stamps, paper punchers, and three different cards in packs with stickers and parts.

We chose a machine, took purikura and then we sat down and got to work.

The place had props too. :)

I'm quite proud of using sticker backing and a paper punch to make masking tape stickers.

I started off with flashbacks to the mt exposition's all-you-can-tape corner, but we were the only ones taking advantage of the crafting, so it was very chill. We took our time arranging the parts and making adjustments to the materials we had on hand.

Over an hour later, we were done. 

Finished! Also, check how neatly the supplies are organized, thanks to Samancha. :)

We chose the same card because the colors and feel matched the purikura we took, but as things like this go, we ended up with two different cards. Good stuff. That was an hour and a half well spent.
