Chopsticks Placecard

DIY Tutorial: Chopsticks Placecard | @onelmon

Since coming to Japan, I hardly eat anything with a spoon. Everytime I buy my meal, the cashier always inserts a pair of bamboo chopsticks into the plastic bag. Honestly, I rarely use them and just toss them into the drawer. As I’m cleaning up before the summer break, I realized that they have piled up in my drawer. So rather than leaving them collecting dust, using them as craft materials is always a good idea. Continue reading

Tennis Ball – Mike Wazowski

DIY Tutorial: Tennis Ball - Mike Wazowski | @onelmon

I posted on my instagram last week that I won a can of tennis balls (seriously) during a dancing statue game and the thing is that I don’t even play tennis. So what to do with the free balls? We make the green monster from Monster Inc., of course! Doesn’t the green ball just remind you of little Mike? Continue reading

Glow in the Dark – Constellation Tumbler

DIY Tutorial: Glow in the dark - Constellation Tumbler | @onelmon

Hi there! Finally, it’s summer here and I can definitely feel the heat these days. I sweat like crazy and carry my water bottle almost everywhere to avoid dehydration. So, early this week, my water bottle finally gave in (after a heavy usage, flipping the cap open and close for umpteenth time in a day). I saw this “create your own tumbler” tumbler during the open campus at my school the other day and decided to purchase one myself. I was thinking of designing something with a ring of summer and I don’t know why but I always relate star gazing with summer. So here goes the constellation tumbler (with a little magic!)

Zipper Bracelet

DIY Tutorial: Zipper Bracelet | @onelmon

Summer is almost here everyone (yay!) and today I’m sharing a tutorial on how to make a bracelet from zippers with pop bright colors to brighten up your look! I saw a pack of colorful zippers sold in Daiso (¥100 shop, something similar to A Dollar store) the other day and I thought this is the chance to try my new sewing machine that has just arrived! Today’s craft will only need minimal sewing but if you don’t sew, you can always substitute all the sewing steps with glueing. Here goes the how to! Continue reading

Human Bookmark

DIY Tutorial: Human Bookmark | @onelmon

Judging from the title, you know I’m going to bring back two things that I love the most, photo and bookmark! I think my obsession to bookmark has increased in a ridiculous pace lately because I kept thinking of making more and more (the number of books I read can’t even catch up with them). Nevertheless, I made another one again this week with a more unique and personal touch on it! Scroll down to see how to make one for yourself too! Continue reading

In today’s digital era, do you still print out your photos from holiday or special occasions? I did and still do.

So today, I’m bringing out the crafting with photo theme again for the last craft from the ice cream stick series, a photo charm that is so small that you can bring it anywhere. Continue reading
