Hello! I just got back from a short trip to the west part of Japan the other day and bought a handful of phone charms home. Honestly, I don’t use phone charms as they often make scars on my phone screen (yeap, my cellphone is just protected with a silicon back case). As I have enough keychains, this time, I decided to turn them into a bracelet! It’s so easy to make and all you need is, well… your phone charms!Continue reading →
By now maybe some of you have realized that I like playing around with photos and making bookmarks. So here comes another photo-related craft today. It’s an easy and quick photo holder using only minimal materials! You can substitute that cork sheet with a plastic cap, a stack of paper (old magazine or newspaper) or anything as photos are lightweight. I just use the cork sheet because I have some leftover on hand. Scroll down to see the how to.Continue reading →
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! Continue reading →
A reader pointed out that I can make fairies in a jar with theglowing beadsI made the other day. After a search for the how-to in the Internet, it looks like the craft calls for the liquid inside a glow stick. I am (still) struggling, trying to find out how to cut my glow stick (it seems like I will need a more powerful tool to cut through it). So, with whatever I had at the time, I made this glowing snow jar instead, minus the glow stick. Continue reading →
Let’s take a break from Halloween crafts for a while to organize the kitchen today! I’ve been experimenting a lot lately, not just in my crafting table but also in the kitchen. I’m not a cooking expert and honestly, all I know is just making a toast. But a simple toast is boring if you have it everyday, so I’ve been buying spices and mixing them up on top of my toast just to see how they turn out. Glad to say, no funny and inedible toast so far ;) With the increasing number of spices I purchased, I know I need to organize them somehow and with just three things, I whipped up this super easy and quick fix!Continue reading →
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 →
Today’s post is more like a tip rather than a craft. Do you use sandpaper a lot when you are making your artwork or craft? I recently use it a lot and I was taught how to make sanding easier so that you won’t hurt your finger… and the sandpaper. The trick is really simple, you just need to paste your sandpaper onto something flat. But as I think it’s a bit hard to hold, I add a handle to it so I can use it even easier. Here goes your sanding brush!Continue reading →
