Modern and Simple Nails

Hi everyone! When I went to paint my nails today I was planning on doing a completely different design, but this one just sort of came to be haha 🙂 I actually really like the way it turned out – it’s simple but still catches attention. What do you guys think?

Thanks for reading!

Jean Jacket Makeover

Hey guys! So, I love cutting things up and making them new again. It’s so much more rewarding then going out and buying something, and it’s pretty cool to think that what you made is an original! Recently I upcycled an old jean jacket into this cute girly vest. I’m in love with the way it turned out. The best part is it was simple to do! I just cut the sleeves off of the jacket, cut out a piece of fabric that fit the back of it, hand stitched that on, and finally glued on the lace to give it a more finished look. You could even use fabric from an old piece of clothing for the back of the vest to keep up the recycling theme (:

Don’t throw out that old clothing! It’s just screaming to be made into something new!

Thanks for reading! (:

DIY Cat Crossbody Bag

 Hey guys! I recently saw a picture of a crossbody bag with a cute little cat face on it, and the minute I saw it I thought “I have to try to make that!”. So that’s what I did 🙂 I grabbed my trusty white duct tape and made the base of the purse, and then glued some black felt on the flap and added some glitter (because glitter makes everything better hehe) Finally I painted the cat face on with fabric paint. I think it turned out really cute!

 Thanks for reading!

Duct Tape and Magazine Purse

Hey! Today I’m going to be sharing a project that I really love! It’s this purse made from duct tape and magazines. I’ve been wanting a new purse for a while now, and when I figured out I could make one with a $5.00 roll of white duct tape and some magazines I had lying around, I was so excited! This took me about an hour and a half to make – it’s super easy to do. I made the base of the purse from duct tape, and then cut out random words from some magazines I didn’t want anymore (I love using Teen Vogue for projects like this because they’re filled with bright and fun font!). After I cut out the words, I taped the back of them to the purse and then finished it off with some clear packaging tape to seal the paper and keep it in place. Duct tape actually makes a sturdy and strong bag, and it’s water proof! Yay! 🙂 I love the way this turned out – it’s different and eye-catching. And it cost almost nothing! Win win!
