Review: 6 Roll Masking Tape Storage/Travel Case

If you are like me, you must love masking tapes. And like me, you are probably always looking for the perfect way to store them or bring them out with you. The search might be over though. Check out this brand new masking tape case I bought recently!

The case will hold up to 6 rolls of tape and you can stand it upright or sideways. Easy to store and easy to bring it out with you. Good for traveling!

For those wondering, the masking tapes shown are part of the new summer collection from Daiso. I've also purchased the fusen to go with it!

Have you tried this case? What is your favorite way to bring tapes out on a trip with you? Would you like us to stock the store with these cases?

Comment below and let us know!

Flying Tiger's 'Travel Notebook'

For those who are unfamiliar with Flying Tiger, it is the Copenhagen version of a 'zakka' store, very cute, somewhat useful and low priced. It's one of those stores that's really hard to leave without buying a thing. The store front is so cute you'll also have trouble walking past without going in.

Yes, we're suckers for cute things. 

I visited one of their stores on a recent trip to London. It was summer and there were a lot of cute summer themed things like mini deck chairs, floats, towels, you get my drift. I always pay special attention to the stationery section and I discovered a selection of 'Travel Notebooks' that looked similar to the beloved Travelers Notebooks. The covers came in a few different designs and each cover came with a kraft folder, elastics and 2 notebooks. For £2, it was a no brainer and I picked one up immediately. 

First up, it's hard to complain about quality, for £2, you get what you pay for. The cover is laminated hard cardboard and there are visible lines where it's been bent but otherwise rigid and feels like it would survive tumbling around a bag. It comes fully assembled and as mentioned, it comes with a kraft folder where one side is an envelope and the other, a pocket, it also comes with 2 notebooks (square grid and lined), I'm not a fan of the paper but refills were £1 a piece, so you're basically getting the cover/kraft folder for free with the purchase of the 2 notebooks. 

I reckon this would be a great starter kit for someone who wanted to try the travelers notebook system out but didn't want to invest heavily. Although I should mention that the Flying Tiger version is slightly smaller than the actual traveler's notebook. Refills from a traveler's notebook would not be able to fit into the elastics, but you can certainly slide it into the cover. 

Have you seen these in stores? What did you think? 

P.S Beach stickers featured are available in our store.

DISNEY Store TSUM TSUM Dual tip Pen Set

Here at TN5C we love finding stationery outside of the usual stationery stores. Today we review some pens we found at the Disney Store! 

These pens come in a set of 7 and each one is dual tipped. One side is a fine tip and the other a brush tip. (See images). The brush tip is semi hard [not as soft as kuretake brush pens] but write beautifully as well. Perfect for lettering and naturally journaling!

Have you tried them? Let us know what you think of them!
