Personalised File Organiser DIY

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have been looking for a file organiser that I could personalise according to size, style, and enough slot to put my important papers in but I had difficulty looking for one so my DIY ideas to the rescue! πŸ™‚

This is so cheap to make! And heres what you’re going to need:

  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Glue Stick (It has to be glue sick, so the cardboard is even out when gluing the cardboard paper)
  • Electrical tape (colour of your choice)
  • Masking tape
  • Recycled Cardboard box (cut into size 13″x9″)
  • Cardboard Paper (cut into size 13″x9″) – any colour of your choice πŸ™‚

I have cut the recycled cardboard box and cardboard paper as shown below;

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Important: In gluing the cardboard paper to the recycled cardboard box, only use glue stick so the paper will even out on the recycled cardboard box, shown below;

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have used an electrical tape to secure the edges of the cardboard and add some design to it πŸ˜‰

Now the exciting part…. Personalising your File organiser! πŸ™‚ You can write whatever you want or probably Β use a colourful cardboard paper of your choice;

You will now make the accordion for both sides, I have cut a cardboard paper 30cm x 22.5cm and had it divided and lined by 1.5cm using a scissors to score the paper.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It should look like this;

Now, to connect the accordion on both sides, I use a masking tape on each side to secure the accordion;

Do the above on both sides and it should look like this;

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have also put the electrical tape on the side just to secure the accordion in place;

That Awesome Feeling to Serve in our Mission Trip to the Philippines, April 2017

I can’t believe it all happened! It was just last year I was telling my handsome cutest hubby that I wanted to do a mission trip, and has been included in my prayers and God made it all happened! πŸ™‚

We all have that longing to serve, and to help, (Yea you do!) simply because we are all created in the image of God, and God wants to help you if you want to be helped and believe in Him thats what He said in John 3:18,

Β Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son ❀

I don’t know where to start how to tell you but the photos uploaded will help me tell the story :).

First of all I have to tell you that this Mission Trip Β was “fun fulfilling hard-work”. We’ve organised a POP-up Shop, shown below my handwritten awesome quotes sold in the pop-up-shop and all the stuff some of my friends and church has donated.

And the SHE (Strong Highly Favoured and Empowered) Walk for a Cause love in Action.

And of course thankful to my spiritual Nanay and Tatay together with their daughter Fideliz who orchestrated and has the heart to serve and started helping unfortunate children and community in the Philippines also here in Australia.

I just couldn’t thank God enough for this magical experience that He made to happen, something that I will treasure all my life. One of my favourite question I ask myself is “Is there not a cause???” I know we all have different goals and wants in life but start with asking yourself that question when you’re up to doing something, have a cause in all that you do and I pray that in all that you do let it all be done in Love <3.

How to Cut Out Letters out of a Foam Board

fullsizerender-93

So I did this project for an event booth at church and I wanted to show you how I made it πŸ™‚ I have been doing projects like this when I was in primary, dit it as well in my high school years and for church deco on special events and occasions, so let me show you how to easily, well makes it easier for you to cut it out from a foam board, here i will show you from choosing the letter or your word that you need to cut out and the choice of cheap materials that you can get ;). Lets begin ei??

What You Will Need:

  • Utility knife/cutter small size (I use 9mm size Scotch Utility Knife)
  • A4 Glittered Card (bought from a dollar shop- $2.99/ 3 sheets)
  • Foam board
  • Print out letter of what you want to cut out (or hand-write it like I did)
  • Glue
  • Scissors

fullsizerender-96

Begin to hand-write the letters that you will need to cut out on a piece of paper, then cut it out.

fullsizerender-97

After cutting it out, put the cut out letters on reverse as shown below to your choice of paper where its gonna show on your finished project. I have placed it in a way to save more space and maximise the use of the paper of your choice as shown below.

fullsizerender-94

When you finish tracing the letters on reverse to paper of your choice, cut it all out then use glue to firmly place it on the foam board as shown below.

fullsizerender-98

This is where it gets tricky a little bit but not to worry, when its all nice in place and glued start cutting out the letters using the utility knife. The round edges are the hard bit, but the technique is to cut in straight strokes multiple times as shown below to cut out an even result when you take out the excess.

fullsizerender-95

Some part of the cut out letters would not easily come off so what I do is I cut it from the back follow the already cut lines to fully cut all out the letters from the foam board. I also use a magazine at the bottom of the foam board to easily cut it out πŸ˜‰

fullsizerender-92

And the result??? I think it’s amazing! Amazing in a way that I or you (when you do yours soon πŸ˜‰ get to help out on a project that gives an additional bling or statement to an event booth or special occasions! Have fun creating!

Love, Kristine ❀

Personalized Easy DIY Zipper Makeup Pouch

fullsizerender-3fullsizerender

Loving this new pouch that I made myself for my beauty makeup weapons! Haha! First of all, thanks for dropping by and in this blog I will show you how to make this, it’s so easy I promise you! πŸ™‚

Go grab the things needed, listed below;

  • Two outer Fabric of your choice 10″x7″ in size
  • Two lining Fabric 10″x7″ in size
  • Zipper 10″ in size (cut to fit in the size of your fabric)

Start Creating! πŸ™‚

You want to make sure the zipper you have is the same size of the pouch you will be making and if the zipper you have is too long just cut to as the same size as your fabric as shown below and make sure do a stitch at the end of the zipper where it has been cut like below.fullsizerender-78fullsizerender-76

Now after you’ve got the right size of the zipper you will then sew the zipper unto the fabric as shown below, you will need to use a zipper foot in sewing this.

fullsizerender-81fullsizerender-86

You will now need to get the lining fabric to sew on the other side, same stitching as what you did to your outer fabric.

fullsizerender-82

Next step is to top stitch the outer fabric, just make sure when you do the top stitch not to include the lining fabric

fullsizerender-90

In this step, you will sew the fabric together leaving a gap in the lining fabric to reverse it later on, as shown below make sure to to fold the zipper teeth toward the lining

fullsizerender-84fullsizerender-74

I have cut the edges of the fabric shown below then turn the pouch inside out.

fullsizerender-83

fullsizerender-88

After turning the pouch inside out, you will need to top stitch or hand sew the fabric for closure.

fullsizerender-80

Now heres the best part! For me anyways! haha! Personalising your pouch! I have chosen a Cotton organic Natural cotton specifically for this so I could write on it πŸ˜‰

You will need to choose what you want to write on it, and practice first before you write on your fabric. The pen I have used for this is theΒ SharpieΒ Stained fabric Marker
