Snapshot Necklace

DIY Tutorial: Snapshot Necklace | @onelmon

A few days ago I saw a lady wearing a cartoon character necklace in the station and I thought it was kinda cute. But hey, why not make it funnier and more fun by using a real image of a person instead? I have 2 sisters that are very fond of doing jumping shots and I thought those shots could work well for this accessory. Of course you can use a standing (still) photo of yours but I think a shot with two hands up or any other gestures would make cuter necklaces. Let’s jump to the easy how-to!

Pressed Flowers

DIY Tutorial: Pressed Flowers | @onelmon

Sakura season is over in where I’m living now actually, but because this craft took a bit of time (the waiting part!!), I can only manage to share this post this week. So, this is my very first spring in my entire whole life. I’ve been living in tropical 2-season countries for the past 25 years so I’m very excited with the transition from the cold winter to the warm spring season :) As a memento for my first spring, I collected the sakura flowers just as they are about to wither (they have a relatively short blooming season, only a week or two) and turned them into pressed flowers. They are pretty as bookmarks (oh yes, another bookmark for me!) or they are great for table display too! 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
