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.

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

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

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
