I am here again with a new project.
I hope you liked it.
Thank you so much!
I’ve got a new project here, nail polish organizer made of cardboard. I made two of them. One is open where it can sit anywhere you want it to and the other one has a door where you can attach it to the wall.
You can check how I made them here.
I hope you liked them sweeties 🙂
It is 5 days away to Valentine’s day! Excited? Not me :'(. I am single and I am happy. Anyways, I want to share what I made last night as a Valentine’s gift to a friend. Last time, she mentioned that she wants something that she can stuff her precious things. Since, I am broke, I thought of gifting her that but in a most pocket friendly way :P.
There was this old tin can which was just lying in my cupboard(perfume packaging from Body Shop). I thought of making it into something useful so I can gift it to her. So, I came up with this (I guess) pretty vintage inspired re-purposed tin can.
tin can, kraft paper(you can use any printed paper also depending on the design that you want), paper napkins, music note printed paper, fabric lace, pearl beads, white glue, thin brush, stick glue, pencil, scissors, needle and thread, any printed word that you want, I used “HAPPINESS”, jute string and button
After covering the lid, from top to side around, I started accentuating it.
On how I made the spiral rose, you can refer here http://tallystreasury.com/2011/05/paper-orchids-and-spiralled-paper-roses/
I used a paper napkin(which I got from a restaurant 😛 ^_^)in making the spiralled paper rose then I glued a pearl bead in the center of it. I made three of them.
Then I started to work on the lid by gluing halfway center across a fabric lace then placed the three flowers beside it. I cut a butterfly and a feather from the music note printed paper. Also her initial which is “M” with a heart on it(stitched around) I added a jute string on the feather’s stem and a button on top of it. Then I cut the word Happiness.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY Sweeties! I hope you liked this idea.
HELLO! Yes, it is me again, sweeties.
I really want to be productive while sitting home. I was clearing some unwanted stuffs and I saw these empty shoe box and shirt boxes(which I got from an online shop). I admit my crafting tools/stuffs are everywhere! I barely get time to nicely keep them because I am a working woman and I only get a little bit of time during my off days(and that is just once a week). This is also the reason why I am on and off in posting and showcasing my DIY ideas or how you may call it(lols). I am just waiting for something at this time that is why I am a free woman for couple and couple of days!! Yey!
Ok, so here it is now. I am presenting my new repurposed items where I can organize and stuff my crafting tools and the likes.
Empty boxes, printed papers(got the prints online ^_^ downloaded and copy pasted them in an A4 size paper then print!), lace for the accent, glue(I just used an ordinary white glue)a brush, glue stick, pencil for tracing and masking tape(optional).
YES, THIS IS ME 😛
You can now start digging for old/empty shoe boxes or any box which you can make use of sweeties. I guarantee you, they are really pretty and functional. I am just beginning to stuff my things in them and I am so happy!
I hope you liked this post.
It was a busy holiday that’s why I was not able to share any posts at all. Sorry :(. At the moment, I am at home hatching egg so I thought of making something(lol). One of my necklaces got spoiled. I felt bad because I got it from China and I love it(though I did not use it much)! It has this knitted flower pendant and red pearl for its chain. So, to make use of them, I thought of accentuating them into my mobile pouch. Brilliant!
Felt cloth, lace, glue stick, needle and thread(for stitching the pouch together), button and the knitted flower and pearl beads
Note: Felt cloth should be two pieces of the same size
2. After cutting, I stitched the felt together.
3. Glued the beads just below the opening edge followed by the lace and the flower in one corner below.
4. Stitched a button in the backside and a loop of lace(stitched from inside of the felt cloth)so I can close the opening for my mobile not to slip out then PRESTO!
I hope you find it cute sweeties because I do!
I used sharpies to write on the pot(ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS). For the succulent soil ingredients, I pour in potting soil, sand and perlite. I mixed them all together then planted my little cactus.
I put some crystal rocks around then a little bit of small stones on the side then accentuated it with a shell. Then, FINISH!
Have you tried this? It is so easy.
Today, I want to share how my humble country kitchen looks like. I call it “Pinoy Style/My Style”, as usual.
I hope you liked it ^_^
