DIY is the go to thing.

DISCLAIMER: Image heavy post. Please hold yourselves on the ground.

Jan 19th 2011.

Hello there.


Can you see me? No you cant? Well good for you, because I don't feel any better. Yes, I'm still so sick, lying down on the bed, feeling useless because I can't do anything so the best I came up with was putting and compiling all the clicks of mid Jan 2012 (some crazy ones) and showing you this collage. 

Before that: Here's something I'm going to do more often. To inspire myself. And mainly to inspire all of you every single time. Since I'm no philosopher, I'll leave you with a quote. 

This time its a picture quote. So the picture quote of the post:


Now moving on to the random pictures. Here they are, excuse the complete randomness and click on it to see it in detail. :)

From left to right, top to bottom.
A jumble of tic tacs, an important topic, Yummy Egg and Cheese burger, Breakfast at McD, Octane that the teacher gifted us, Pizza Filling McPuff, 2012 Calender: Courtesy Star World, Flower doodle, Mouth watering cakes, HIMYM Calender sneak a peak!
Center: A random click of the psychology text book. Chapter on Counselling. 

I think, I'll do this more often. :) It was a lot of fun. 

Now, a lot of you have been asking for a DIY post. But for a start im not doing the accessories DIY, that'll be a bit later. Here's something I did a while back. It caught a lot of eyes and people asking me how I did it, so here you go. Specially for you. 

Personalized Accessories Holder and Phone stand

Materials Required:
1. Cardboard box of any shape as you wish, I've used a rectangular one.
2. Tissue paper
3. Ice Cream Sticks if you want an inclusive phone holder
4. 3D Outliner
5. Scissors
6. Fevicol
7. Patience. Lots!

So now lets get started shall we? 

First of all use tissue paper, I prefer to use coloured ones because they look lovely and you might also use craft paper, anything that works for you.  Wrap the bottom half of the box using fevicol and if you are using tissue paper I must warn you it will tear so dont use too much fevicol. 

And this is what you'll have once you've wrapped it. 

Next I used 3-D glue to decorate the box and you can even use sequins and other crafty stuff you get at stores. Personally I'm a fan of 3-D outliner because its lovely. 

Since I know you're smarty, I am fast forwarding two steps. So you cover the upper lid of the box too and now you have neatly covered boxes. Next you can decorate the upper bit as you wish, and do whatever designs that please you. You can do funky stuff and even carve initials. 

This is what i've done. Its very simple. I've left the middle area empty to make the phone holder. If you aren't keen on it you can design it further.

Next you cut the ice cream stick into half. This would help us make the phone stand. Measure your phone and then you'll know the width and breadth that it'll take. That determines the number of ice cream sticks. Each has to be cut into two smaller parts.

Now place them side by side like I've done and do so till you get the dimensions of your phone. I've also added the cute googly eyes and smiley face. 

And then once you've placed the sticks accordingly you can keep your phone on it and it makes for a perfect accessory holder that has enough room for tidsy bidsy clips and bands that you use daily, some rings and even earrings. And it makes for a lovely deco piece on your table! Done!
