Photo Pins

DIY Tutorial: Photo Pins | @onelmon

Okay, first I want to warn you that this post will be shamelessly filled with my old ID photos, please bear with me (^^); I took a lot of ID photos for visa, exams, passport and other related documents and you know how most of them requires the “at least 3 months old” photos. I did cheat sometimes but sometimes your new hair length just won’t let you cheat. 

I usually use the self-service photo box and it always comes with 8 pieces of photo and most of the time, I just use 1 or 2 of them and the others? Stuffed inside my drawer collecting dust. I keep one photo from every print (just to see how I age overtime LOL), so I’m looking for ways to use these old ID photos and came up with today photo pins and magnets! They are great for memo board and chore charts and very easy to make too!

Carbon Barcode

DIY Tutorial: Carbon Barcode | @onelmon

Today I’m gonna show you how to waste use your mechanical pencil lead to make a barcode. Frankly, the result doesn’t work with the barcode reader (most probably due to the poor arrangements of the lead) but it was a fun experiment and you can totally give this a try (with those broken lead) to make a cool, sort of geeky pendant ;) Scroll down to see the how to!

Glowing Beads

 

DIY Tutorial: Glowing Beads | @onelmon

I got this glow-in-the-dark squeeze bottle paint during a craft supplies’ sale period last month but had no idea what to do with it (it’s a bad habit of mine, purchasing things without further thinking what I would do with them). Browsing back to all the crafts I did, I stumbled upon this experimental dried paint project from last year and decided to add a little mysterious and fun twist to it with the glow-in-the-dark effect. Just in time for Halloween!

Clip-on Card Holder

DIY Tutorial: Clip-on Card Holder | @onelmon

I’m a fan of backpack bags and I use mine everyday! I prefer using a backpack because it can balance the weight on both my shoulders and it’s more unlikely to fall off. But, the downside of the bag is that whenever I need my wallet or my commuter pass, I’ll need to take it off before I can look for what I want, which is kind of frustrating sometimes when I’m in a rush (mine is a zipper type with a fold-over, double frustration!). And so I made this simple card holder to hold my train pass that I can just clip it on my backpack strap. Continue reading

So here we are today for the final item from the drinking straw series. This time, we are using the drinking straws to make a place card holder. It’s a very simple craft and takes only a couple of minutes to make one (the card design took much longer time for me!). So, shall we get started? Continue reading

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

Pencil Case Bookmark

DIY Tutorial: Pencil Case Bookmark | @onelmon

It has been a while since the last time I handstitched something. So when I saw a pencil case that is attached to a notebook in a stationery shop the other time, I thought “Hey, I can make that! (And I can use it as a bookmark too!)” It’s super easy and it takes less than 15 minutes to make one. Scroll through to see the how to!

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
