If you remember myprevious upcycle post with shorts, I still have the other half, leftover shorts from that craft post. Today I’m sharing what I did to the other half! I made a coin purse from it as I just lost my purse during my trip last week :( Read along to see the how to. Continue reading →
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 →
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 →

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!Continue reading →
Okay, this is my first time cutting up my clothes so I was a bit scared when I made this. Although I was using a shorts that I have been wearing at home three times a week for a year (yeah, it’s pretty worn out), I was still nervous about it. Anyhow, I overcame that fear and did it anyway; thinking that summer is over, and this summer-looking worn out shorts is going to be either kept inside the box and never be seen again or thrown away. I decided to upcycle it into a bag and actually satisfied with the result. Here goes the how-to!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 →
