DIY Wednesday – Projects I’m Gonna Be Doing in the Future (Part 2)

Still no DIY projects today. Sadly, I accidentally scraped my left hand on some broken glass and since I’m a proud lefty I can’t use it for now. So I will be continuing my future projects list and I’m obsessed with LIPS! Not my own or anyone else’s for that matter. I am obsessed with lip shaped makeup bags! Ever since I saw the makeup bags given by Milani to some Youtube bloggers I was hooked! So I’m gonna attempt to make my own. Here are some of my inspirations:

1.“Lips” Lipgloss Holder

2. Leather Lips Makeup Bag

And here’s the Milani Makeup Bag:

DIY Wednesday – Projects I’m Gonna Be Doing in the Future

I didn’t have any time to make any DIY projects this week but I do have a ton I want to try in the future. I didn’t have the supplies to make what I wanted so let’s be contented with these babies. This will also serve as a pledge for me to actually make the projects.

DIY Wednesday -My version of the Carrie bag

So I was watching The Carrie Diaries (it’s a prequel to Sex and the City) and I was inspired to make my own version of the Carrie bag.

You need:

An old bag, preferably a black bag

Nail polish (any color but bright colors are encouraged)

Just splatter the nail polish on the bag. In the show Carrie signed her name but I decided to make a heart instead. I also allowed myself some artistic freedom on my Carrie bag.

Voila my very own Carrie bag!

Try it now!

Here is what the original Carrie bag looks like:

DIY Wednesday – Oversized clutch to wristlet

I’ve had this bag since last year. Bought it from eBay for less than 100 pesos. I thought it was a small clutch I could use for a makeup bag. But alas it was too big. And I hate bigger bags without straps.

So here’s the bag.

I couldn’t find a chain to use. So I saw this old headband where the garters were already stretched out.

I cut off the garters and voila now I have a chain.

I attached the chain to one side of the bag by sewing. Tada! I now have a new wristlet!

DIY Wednesday – FUN Bookmark Edition!

What do you do with the envelopes your mail comes in? Whether they be bills or junk mail. Well, here’s a fun new way to recycle them! FUN Bookmarks! Got this idea from The Gin & Jacqie Blog and added my own twist to it.

Let’s start off with the envelopes:

Just some regular envelopes that one of the phone bills come in.

Next, cut a square shape from one of the corners of the envelope. I chose the lower right corner since it was the only one which could be used.

And voila we have a square shape with the corners already tapered.

Now think about your design. It can be anything you want as long as it fits into the square. Since I’ve been liking owls lately thanks to some of my favorite beauty vloggers on Youtube (StilaBabe09, Macbarbie07 and Meghanrosette). I decided on an owl bookmark!

I sketched my idea first as a rough outline like so:

And colored it in with some markers.

Tada! My owl bookmark is done!

And yes that’s a Diary of a Wimpy Kid book. It was the closest book I found to test the bookmark on.

What did you think of my bookmark? Don’t be shy, comment below. And tell me if you’re gonna be making one too!
