Spring Bookmark

DIY Tutorial: Spring Bookmark | @onelmon

As a proud bookworm, I’ll never get enough of bookmarks, which is one reason why I’m still not getting myself a kindle ;-) To welcome the spring (and match the atmosphere), I made this flowery bookmark this week. I so wanted to use real flowers for this but I’ve yet to learn the alchemy on how to prevent flowers from wilting so thank you plastic flower for being here to fill the gap. I bought a stick of sakura (with a few branches and flowers in different sizes) which is now on sale because the blooming session is almost over. So, are your ready to prettify your book with some flowers? Continue reading

Bead Button Necklace

DIY Tutorial: Bead Button Necklace | @onelmon

Do you have a lot of random beads from broken bracelets or necklaces and random spare buttons that were clipped inside your shirts or trousers? I have, lots of them. I always keep the spare buttons even though I have donated the shirts like 8 years ago. Just like the toilet roll, I can’t seem to throw them away because who knows when Pinterest will show me amazing projects that need them. So here was I a few days ago, trying to put these buttons and beads with no master into some use. So, are you ready to join me in transforming these lonely little tinkrets into a simple and cute necklace? Continue reading

Pocky Memo Box

DIY Tutorial: Pocky Memo Box | @onelmon

Nothing beats the feeling of coming home after being away for some time. It feels great to be able to gather with the family and eat all the food you have been missing for (my to-do list whenever I visit a place always has something to do with food). So here I am, back home from Japan for a short holiday before the new term starts next month and I bought a few boxes of Pocky sticks with different flavors that are not available in my hometown with me (not the one I used for this tutorial, strawberry flavor is one of the most basic flavors). I love Pocky’s box packaging and thought that it could make a great memo box. Continue reading
