IS IT A BIRD? IS IT A PLANE? NO IT’S…… MINION NAILS

Hands up, I’m obsessed with minions- I really love them (They can somehow find something good in every situation and I just love their (bad) humor and pure hearts)

So today I will show you a short tutorial on how to do minion nails (beware some of the pictures are a little blurry-I seriously have to charge my camera):

Materials:

  • Black, blue, white, yellow and silver nail polish
  • Base and top coat (mine is 2 in 1)
  • Dotting tools (If you dont have these you can just use a toothpick or try dotting with the nail polish brush)
  • A small brush

  2. Start painting your nails with a base coat
  3. Paint your nails with your yellow colour (either one or two coats-mine needed two)16216085_10209232076746705_902261081_n

Coming home

Coming home

Hello again 🙂

So. I am home in cold, cold Denmark again- and boy have I missed everyone!

We have vacation (My french family and I) so we decided to go to Denmark. They wanted to go see some of their old friends, and of course Legoland (because who doesn’t like Lego???) and I went home first to my boyfriends house and then home to my parents (where I needed to attend a funeral, two birthdays and a lot of doctors appointment)

The best part though was my parents birthdays (my mother had birthday the 16’th of april and my dad the 23’th of march, so we held both when I got home) I promised to show you guys what I made for them, so I am going to!

To both my parents I made a birthday card. My fathers like this:

And my mothers like this:

YES! I love puns, and I have a really bad sense of humor so this was perfect!

Then they got a painting I made

And lastly the best part. Moomins (is this right? The mom and the dad) Since we were small, my mother has always been called “mumimor” which is the mom in Danish- so it was the best idea ever (at least I think so) to make them a crochet moomin.

I just learned to crochet a couple of months ago and it is really relaxing and amazing to see the outcome.

It is great to be home in Denmark again, and even though I love being in France- Denmark is forever my home!

Until next time: I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time! 🙂

bag out of t-shirt

 

Hello again- this time from the cozy warmth of our french home.

Today I have a small and easy DIY for you guys (I feel so sleepy because of the rain and grey weather, so this will be all for this time-do you know that feeling?)

Let’s just jump (or roll akwardly into) it :

Materials:

  • Old shirt
  • Scissors
  • Fabric dye (optional)
  • Plastic cola bottle (optional)

 

How to:

  1. Take your shirt and cut arms off, and then cut the neckline lower
  2. Turn the shirt inside out to make sure the pretty side is out when done
  3. Make small cuts at the bottomdsc02658
  4. Knot the strips together all the way and knot on until the bag is secure
  5. Turn inside out
  6. Stamp on it with the “feet” of the bottle, by dipping them in paint (optional)
  7. Voila!

     

If your shirt already have a nice motive on it, or you just want it simple, you can just do step 1-5 and thats it! Easy and cute! 🙂

Have you ever tried something like this, or are you going to? Please comment and I’d love to hear!

Until next time. I hope you have a happy life, one day at a time.

Magazine bag

Magazine bag

HERE IT ISSSSS!!

Long time no see, and trust me, I didn’t forget you guys! (I’ve actually been getting so many things ready for you) And I think about you every day (yup- not in a creepy way though)

 

Back on track- I have the post ready for you! The super cute magazine bag. It won’t be the same as the picture you guys saw because that one belongs to my mon (and it is right now in Denmark and I in France) but I made a new one (and slightly bigger one) for you. Without further ado:

 

MATERIALS:

  • Tape
  • Magazines
  • Scissor
  • Glue gun
  • 3 different strings/chains/ropes (Optional(for handle))

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Start cutting a template out of a magazine page- The template should be a rectangular with 5 centimeters on one site and 12,5 centimeters on the other ( I made a small hole so that I could see what would show up on my bag, you can make this hole if you just do with your template as shown in step 4+5 (this way you can customize your bag))16521821_10209348437175643_1980593530_n.jpg
  2. Use your template to line and cut out rectangulars from the magazine16507770_10209348437055640_1859056638_n
  3. Put a piece of tape on where you want bag to be protected (this is optional but I think it makes my bag a little easier to handle. You can also tape all the paper down instead of just the piece you want shown
  4. Fold the paper in half, and fold it out again, now take the edges and fold them into the mid. Then fold the paper in half so that it looks like this:
  5. Now fold the paper in half again (on the other side) and fold it out again, take the edges and fold them into the mid. Then fold the paper in half so that it looks like this: (the place with the writing is where your hole in the template should be, so you can mark it with a pencil, fold it out again and cut a hole)
  6. Now make one piece more like this and weave them into each other by putting a “leg” into each hole of the other piece of paper. It should now look like this:
  7. Make even more of the small folded pieces and keep on weaving until you get the desired size for the bag, you know how big it will be by taking one end of the weaving strip and attaching it to the other endDSC02667.JPG
  8. Make weaving strips until you get the desired height for the bag, you know how high it will be by stacking the strips on top of each other (make one or two more strips than the desired height since these will be used to close the bag)DSC02666.JPG
  9. Take the strips and attach them like said in step 7 (you can tape the ends together if this helps)DSC02670.JPG
  10. Glue the strips on top of each otherDSC02671.JPG
  11. Now close the bag by squeezing the bottom together each other and either tape or hot glue them together (If your bag looks kind of weird after this step and looks more like an ice cream cone than a bag, try placing an object on the bag to make it get the desired shape)
  12. Take your three strips of string/rope/chain and braid them together to one string. Attach this to the inside of the bag to have a cute but simple handle

 

That’s it for this time, if you have any questions feel free to ask away in the comment section, and I would love to know- have you ever made something like this before and how did it turn out??

I personally think mine looks dang cute 😀

 

I wish your guys a happy life one day at a time! Love you.

  4. Now take your small brush and paint on those cute blue pants16237424_10209232076586701_1458314127_n
  5. Use your dotting tool to first dot a black dot as eyes (you can choose one or two dots)16216401_10209232076386696_1763022962_n
  6. Now take a smaller dotting tool and make a silver dot inside the black dot-this it the goggles16237171_10209232076466698_1312356344_n
  7. Now take an even smaller dotting tool and make a white dot inside the silver dot-this is the eyes16215975_10209232074306644_981800929_n
  8. Now you take an even even smaller dotting tool (oh all these dots) and make the pupil16176813_10209232074066638_1162399618_n
  9. You now take your small brush again and make the google straps with a black nail polish16215475_10209232074346645_1406271556_n
  10. Now you just need the small black dots to hold the pants up (yes! More dots)16176802_10209232332233092_505803953_n *This one has kind of stange eyes, but I think it just make it even cuter
  11. Last a top coat and voila!

That was it for the minion nails- I hope you liked it!
Have you ever made minion nails before(Or any other minion craft) feel free to comment below-I love everything minion related and would love to see what you guys can come up with

 

Then I have a preview for you guys. I’m right now making something amazing for you guys!

You remember how I promised to make a tutorial for some of the Christmas presents I made, well a lot of them was made out of old magazines.

Next time will be the big reveal on the purse I made for my mom, but this time will be a little easier.

This time it is magazine coasters:

Materials:

  • Glue stick
  • Old magazines (or any other kind of paper)

 

  1. First you take out some pages in your magazine and cut them in half (on the long part)
  2. Then you cut them in half again (still the long part-and it should look like this)16176283_10209232365553925_2094559070_n
  3. You then fold the paper in half twice(you can glue it together to make sure it won’t open by itself)16216192_10209232365473923_1437933330_n
  4. Now just take your paper strap and start rolling it so that it makes a spiral (remember to use glue so that it won’t unroll by itself)16176481_10209232365433922_1774152845_n
  5. Add a new paper strap and start rolling it on where the last piece of paper stopped16215854_10209232365593926_859844926_n.jpg
  6. Keep on doing this until you get the desired size
  7. Voila!16144566_10155729059912586_2099909194_n

 

This is it for this time! Next time will be a small purse just like this one (this is the  one I made for my mother this christmas)16144813_10155729042172586_1505391937_n

Until next time- Stay happy!

DIY Christmas decorations

DIY Christmas decorations

 

Hey everyone!

We’re getting there, surely but slowly (Christmas that is)

 

Today though I promised to show you some easy DIY Christmas decorations. And I can tell you there is quite some- I plucked my favourite 6 just for you.

 

First we got 3 different types of snowflakes (I call them this because I got no idea what else to call them-dont judge 😛 )

First you have to go grab your paper and fold it ( i used a square) and folded it until it looked like this:

15554637_10208921614185335_1555329764_n

Then I cut off the extra and it looked like this:15451263_10208921613985330_2060925423_n

Afterwards I drew on them and then cut the excess paper off.
First type was made like this:

Next one was made like this:

Last one (and my favourite) like this:

 

 

After this we have a popsticle stick christmas tree

I took three coloured sticks and one normal one15555127_10208921615425366_1351806686_n.jpg

I cut the purple sticks and glued them on the normal stick with a hot glue gun15556064_10208921614785350_1734702075_n

Then I cut out a star, found some sequins, and cut a piece of yarn to hang the tree on

I glued these on and my final tree looked like this: (kinda cute?)15497934_10208921614425341_1278999128_n

 

The fifth decoration is another christmas tree (made out of an old magazine)

First you take your magazine and open it on some random page

15555915_10208921605505118_773566816_n.jpg

Then you fold your page from top right corner and down-and then fold it once more

Next step is to fold the small extra piece up and under

Now just do the same with every site in the magazing and your tree should look like this:

15555994_10208921604465092_940688481_n.jpg If the pages are not keeping together you can use a little glue to keep them from seperating.
If you want to spice your tree up you can use some spray paint to get some nice colours.

 

Last DIY for today (and maybe even my favourite) is a sock snowman (yes you read it- a snowman made out of socks)

First you take your socks (mine was used and with holes-and of course white)
I made two balls(kind of) out of paper and stuffed them in the sock, the biggest one first. Then i put an elastic on top to keep everything in place

 

I then cut a small piece of fabric to make some space between the paper, and afterwards cut the ends to make it less visible ( this step is optional, I just thought it made it easier and more “snowman alike”)

Afterwards you’ll want to give the snowman a “real” scarf, so I cut another piece of fabric to use. I then pulled the end of the sock (the piece that right now looks as leftovers) down over the head to make a hat. (you can also give him a doll hat if you’d rather want another one- or maybe make a top hat for him?)

Last step to do before the snowman is all Christmas ready will be putting on buttons, eyes, mouth and nose (you can make these just the way you want) I made mine out of paper and glued them on with a hot glue gun, but you can also put on real buttons or googly eyes.15571329_10208921606865152_1338454263_n

 

These were 6 of my small, cute and easy DIY’s for this christmas and I’d love to hear:

If yes, I’d love to see some pictures in the comments! 🙂
