Hello ladies! Last weekend, we were in the mood to save & make something ourselves. It is a good thing right, from time to time. DIYs also feel special when worn as you made it all by yourself… ever got that feeling? On top of it, if you manage to grab a compliment, it makes your day, now doesn’t it. So many perks of DIYing then, we promise it will be totally worth your effort. 

This week get all the materials you need, so you can get DIYing this weekend! YAY!

You would need:
– Large paper (even use the back side of wrapping paper)
– Clear vinyl
 
Button stud
 
Scissors
 
Studs
 
E6000 glue 
– BBQ stick or wooden chopstick
– Ruler
– Scotch tape
– Sewing machine
– Sewing thread 

How to make it:
1. Cut a piece of paper: 12″ x 19″. This will be your paper pattern.
2. Tape your pattern onto the clear vinyl.
3. Fold the bottom piece up 7″.
4. Sew the left and right side that you folded up 7″.
5. The unfolded/unsewn part is the flap of the clutch.
6. Glue studs to the outside of the flap. Try putting a small amount of e6000 on a paper, and add glue to the stud using a bbq stick or wooden chopstick. The trick to keeping the stud layout very even, is it to place the ruler underneath as a guide for straight lines. Please note to keep a small area free of studs, for placement of the button stud (the closure of your clutch). I placed my 1″ up, centered from the bottom edge of the flap.
7. Draw a very small X or dot onto the top layer of the clutch for the placement of the button stud. Have it located directly below the area you left without studs on the flap. It is important that these match up. Cut a very small X where you put the mark. Screw in the button stud here.
8. TADA! Almost done. Now, close the flap and cut a small slit where the button stud lands. This is so that you can open and close your clutch.

• DIY Rope and Chain Necklace
Via Thanks! I made it 

You would need:
– 19 inches of 12 mm gold curb chain
– Large end caps
– 20 inches of 8mm cotton rope (available at fabric store or here)
– Jewelry pliers
– 10 mm jump rings (5)
– 8 mm jump rings (2)
– Large clasp (the exact kind I used I can’t track down online, nor is it the most secure, so I recommend you could use a large lobster clasp and additional jump rings)
– Super glue

How to make it:
1. Slide the 12 mm jump rings onto the rope. 
2. Center the ring in the middle of the rope and the chain, and close the ring through the chain’s center link. Note— the chain is shorter than the rope by 2 inches (to account for the curve of the necklace), so remember to center the chain with a extra inch of rope on either end.
3. Add the rest of the rings, spacing them evenly along the rope and chain. Put glue in the end caps, and press firmly onto the end of the rope. Once the glue is dry, use pliers to open the last link of the chain and attach to the clasp, and attach the end cap with a jump ring. Repeat on the other end of the necklace.

Pretty brilliant now wasn’t it?

Sunglasses ( plastic frames, and enough surface to color)
Paper Tape
2 Nail Paints
Nail Paint remover
Cotton Swabs
Manicure tips

How to make it:
1. Tape your sunglasses, exactly at the middle to paint. 
2. Paint the top half of your frames, in the color of choice with long clean strokes. If the nail paint gets lumpy, first dab on a paper towel. When you reach the lens, make smaller strokes.
3. Leave for 20 minutes to dry.
4. Remove the tape.
5. Paint the bottom half, you can tape it if you get uncomfortable. But free-handing works well too as you already have a line defined. And in case you mess up, you have the nail polish remover.
6. Wait another 20 minutes to dry. Remove any excess paint using manicure tips and you are done.

Weren’t all of them simple and super tempting? Have a crafty weekend ladies! Much love :*
