School supply DIY

YES! I did make the header like that JUST because it rhymes. And it is awesome 😛

I’m back (finally) and I have a couple of more DIY’s for you lovely people!

So- lets get into this ASAP 🙂

First I got three different notebooks (I got the inspiration from NimC- go check her out, she makes some amazingly cute stuff Nim C youtube channel)

21291320_10211209754667417_686389946_n

You’ll need:

  • paint
  • plain notebooks- mine were black
  • imagination

How to:

  1. Find your notebook, and paint it in your desired color, I made three different, you can do that too

    2. Now draw a sihluette on the covers, this makes it MUCH easier to paint- but you can also make it by free hand

    21267745_10211209754787420_1935560088_o21268534_10211209755147429_847373884_n21269769_10211209755227431_517969270_n

    3. Start painting- and you are finished! (I don’t know where the last book went, so this is all you got ;))21290979_10211209754987425_161298725_n21284300_10211209754827421_347510736_o

    For the next DIY we have two different pencils. We will start with the easiest first.

 

Book pencils.
You’ll need

  • glue
  • an old book
  • scissors
  • pencils

How to

  1. First you will have to take some pages out of your book, and then cut them into sizes that fit your pencils21268136_10211209756347459_691149636_o21277658_10211209756107453_1526501506_o

    2. Now put some glue on the paper, and roll the pencil until it’s covered. Yup that’s it. Just let it dry 🙂

     

 

Last DIY for today, might be one of my favorite. It’s fandom inspired pencils.

You’ll need

  • Scissors
  • bowl with warm water – a plate will work too
  • Printer
  • paper
  • pencils

How to:

  1. First, go to a word program and start writing the sentences you want on the pencils in there (I wrote some of my favourite quotes from GOT). I used size 11, and it worked for me. Print these out21245171_10211209756587465_171060200_n
  2. Put tape over the sentences and make sure it’s tight. Then cut them out individually
  3. Now put these in the warm water for about 3 minutes- they will curl up. Then rub the paper off the backside-it should come off pretty easy, if not, soak it for a minute or so more. You should still be able to see what you wrote. Afterwards put it to dry.
  4. When the small tape strips are dry, they should once again become sticky, and you can tape them on your pencils. If they don’t go on easy, try using a little glue. That’s all and you are finished. I miiiight have made a little more than necessary, but well, I had fun.

That’s all for this time.

 

Have any of you tried some of these before and did it work for you?

 

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time! :*

Back to school

Back to school

 

Welcome back guys, this is the post that has been on it’s way for a while.

This time I will tell you a lot of things so prepare yourself for a long post 😊

 

I am one of those persons that always has a lot of emergency stuff with me- just in case. So the first list (yes another list-I loooove them) will be about this. There will be one for girls, but also one for boys- even though they do not necessary need as much as we do. Even if you are not at school, this is still usable at work or maybe for someone you know.

Now for once, lets turn the tables and say: boys go first.

Boys emergency kit:

  • Deodorant
  • Lip balm
  • Emergency money
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Painkillers
  • Phone charger
  • Snacks
  • Spare set of clothes (optional)

 

Girls emergency kit:

  • Deodorant
  • Lip balm
  • Emergency money
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Painkillers
  • Phone charger
  • Snacks
  • Tweezer
  • Pads
  • Mascara and foundation
  • Hairbrush
  • Extra set of underwear
  • Hair band
  • Spare set of clothes (optional)

 

20979647_10211123137902052_1942651480_n

Now, that’s the emergency kit for students- well a basic one at least.
Now for another type of emergency kit: the one for teachers.

 

Teacher emergency kit:

  • Chocolate
  • Coffee
  • Tic tacs, mint or gum
  • Lip balm
  • Extra pencils
  • Hand cream
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Glue
  • Rubber bands
  • Paper clips
  • Push pins
  • Staples

 

 

Moving on to the next thing: organizing ideas.

 

  1. Parent inbox (or just your inbox) for papers or other stuff that must be signed or paid.
  2. Have a “don’t forget list” on your door every night to make sure you don’t forget anything
  3. Create a homework station with everything you might need to do homework

20967821_10211122409443841_178498084_o21015249_10211122928176809_460739547_n

 

 

 

Now a couple of easy DIY’s for back to school, which includes:

Cute pencils, watercolor bookmarks, washi charger, Cute notebook and a reusable to do list.

Cute pencils:
You will only need some pencils (mine were just regularly black ones) and then a marker in your desired color.
You can write whatever you want on them, but this is what I chose
21014481_10211122928376814_1715492602_o20967970_10211122928336813_1120180509_o

Watercolor bookmarks:

You will need:

  • Cardboard
  • Water
  • Watercolors
  • Scissors
  • Marker
  • Brush

Start cutting the cardboard in your desired shape.
Choose your colors and start painting however you like (I just splashed some colors here and there and I think they look beautiful!)
Wait until dry, and then write whatever you desire on them
21013445_10211122409363839_805605046_n20986129_10211122409523843_1425808152_n

Washi charger:
You will only need your charger and some washi tape.
Just cut off the length you need and cover your charger, mine ended up with a floral print. 😊

Heart notebook:
You will need: normal black notebook and permanent markers in the desired color.
I just chose to make a heart on my front cover but you can chose whatever motive you like.
Start making a template if that is easier for you, and then dot around it until you like how it looks. I chose to dot with two different colors.

 

Reusable to do list:
You will need:

  • A small picture frame
  • Marker
  • Colored paper
  • Scissor

Start opening the picture frame and cut your paper out in the right size.
I had to cut it into 3 different shapes and then tape them together, but you don’t have to do that 😊
Put the backpiece back on the picture frame and just start writing on it with your marker.
Remember to choose a marker that you can get off again 😉

That’s everything, please tell me if it helped you, or if you would like some more back to school stuff (like DIY’s)

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

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

16176871_10209232076866708_358152304_n

  1. Make sure your nails are clean
  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

17392898_10209759829020182_912905217_n

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.

17806950_10209899657555808_94725076_n

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! 🙂

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.

16176871_10209232076866708_358152304_n

  1. Make sure your nails are clean
  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
  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!
