Paper Craft, Scrapbook Supplies - 168 Mall, Divisoria



We'll be attending a wedding next month where I'm one of the Matrons of Honor and my little girl, Jordana, is going to be the little bride. The motif is red and we can get our own dresses with the design we want. For Jordana, we'll have a little wedding gown made specially for her, but for me, I just decided to get one off-the-rack as I probably won't wear it again. So, my sister, who's also part of the entourage, and I visited 168 Mall in Divisoria where there are lots and lots of ready made bridal gowns, evening gowns, cocktail dresses, and the likes. The traffic was as bad as usual, our brother drove us there, but fortunately we both got what we went there for and I bought a few more things. 


It’s always a challenge to go to Divisoria so whenever I get the chance to visit, I make sure that the trip is always worth it. So, I walked around a bit after our main purpose there to buy a few stuff and I found this store selling arts and crafts, and school and office supplies. I got excited when I saw that they have stuff I can hoard for future use. I took this picture so I could easily find the store the next time I get to go to Divi.  I forgot to ask what the stall number is but it’s easy to find as this store is located at the corner and start of this hall, Pasilio 2M, just below these signs.



I got two packs of 12 x 12 inches patterned paper, each pack costs Php 150 (a little over $3) and contains 24 sheets of patterned paper and three die-cut sheets. There were lots of packs with different designs to choose from, they also have the 8.5 x 11 and 6 x 6 sizes.





I love the vintage vibe of these patterns, like they're part of a journal or a collection of someone from a horror film.





These are the die-cut sheets, most of the patterns have shiny embossed designs. One die-cut sheet like this is already worth Php 50 (over $1) from the book store I usually visit. This is a really good find for me.








Same goes for this other pack, beautiful sheets of die-cuts and patterned paper.


These stick-on crystals are good for scrapbooking and designing girly stuff. I got the big pack for only Php 50 (over $1) and the smaller one for Php 35 (about $0.75).



I'm so happy with this find. For only Php 180 (a little less than $4), I got this big round puncher. The size of the circle is about 3.5 cm. This is great for making round gift tags.



Each bundle of hot glue sticks costs Php 30 and contains 10 sticks, only Php 90 (a little less than $2) for all three. This 250ml bottle of white glue is only Php 45 (about $1).


This pack of 20 sheets of A4 size photo paper is also a good find, only Php 85 (less than $2) which is really low compared to mall prices. 

There were other stuff that I was also thinking of buying but I didn't think they'll be much use for my projects. There were color pens, colorful stickers, punchers with different patterns, stationery set, stencils, and a lot more. Sadly, they don't have distress inks which I really want to have. 

Verdict: Another fruitful Divisoria visit. I'll surely be back, hopefully within this year, before my supplies get depleted.  

If you have a paper craft hobby and you're here in Manila, give Divisoria a shot and it might be a nice surprise for you to find stuff with very low prices compared to your regular craft stores and I think this store at 168 Mall would be a good place to start.

Thank you for dropping by. Have a nice day!

    1. Eto lang yung napuntahan ko pa lang mismo eh, dito sa 168 mall. Nakabili ako dati, pero hindi sa mismong divi, sa Wellmanson's sa Villalobos street, sa Quiapo. Mas madami silang stocks dun kaso one ride pa ata yun from divi.

  3. Thanks for sharing this! Naghahanap po ako ng round puncher online, 2.5 inches. Pero ang mahal ng price nila. P910 - P750, kaya nagulat po ako nung nakita ko yung post niyo na P180 lang yung 3.5 inches. Pwede po kayang umorder sa kanila saka ipadeliver? From province pa po kasi ako. Thanks in advance!

    1. Yes, medyo pricey nga sa mga online sellers pero branded and imported yung mga items nila kaya siguro mahal. Hindi daw nagshiship tong pinagbilhan ko, tinanong ko din sila kasi out of stock yung iba kong gusto tapos order na lang sana ko at iship pag dumating na. Sabi sakin try ko na lang ulit bumalik dun to check kasi di sila nagdedeliver, pwesto lang talaga sila sa 168 mall sa Divi.

May mga online seller sa IG at FB, di ko lang alam mismo mga names, nagsearch lang ako before ata nun ng "craft supplies philippines" tapos chineck ko mga results. Mga branded binibenta nila, Martha Stewart, Fiskars, Stampin' Up, mga ganun.
