Taking Notes Reveals Beautiful Paper Art

Paper Art

Omoshiroi Block. Have ever heard of these before? You have now. These are memo pads that reveal architecture and other things as you use them. We are not talking about simple square buildings here, no, we are talking about Kyoto’s famous Kiyomizu-dera temple. What is even wilder, the foliage around the building is revealed as well with neat extras that will surely catch your eye when looking for a note.

The Kiyomizu-dera design was available in four colors. I say “was” because Triad, the makers of this special note pad, have long since sold out. They are expecting more to come but no idea when. What is cooler about the color choices is that they relate to various times of year. Details in the paper art include sakura cherry blossoms, bamboo, iris, and autumn leaves. Simply amazing design work here.

There is another treat for users of these memo pads – the cards have uniqueness to them as well. While in the United States, and most of the rest of the world, we get stuffy old straight, square or rectangle, shaped memo pads, Triad’s take on them is quite different.

The memo sheets each have unique shapes to them as well as many having a design along the top. From people with umbrellas to mountain ranges, these are another functional addition that is a side product of making the design that is left on the pad. Quite ingenious.

If you are not interested in the Kiyomizu-dera design, you are in luck because Triad offers many other designs. They offer designs of musical instruments, vehicles and machinery such as trains, even old-style cameras, and of course, more Japanese temples.

These are stupidly detailed little master pieces of art and functionality. Fans of paper crafting should check these out, watch the Triad on-line store and prepare to be a quick draw with that credit card because these will surely sell out fast.
