Do It Yourself

Studs Short

Hi everybody! While I'm still constructing my new years's resolution for this year, I would like to share with you a little crafty side of me. It's almost 6 month since I share DYI project and I can't wait to share with you another DYI project! =) So here's my DYI project: Stud Shorts. Have fun! 


1 pack of stud (50 pcs. Diamond shape)
1 peso coin
1 denim short pants

How to do it?

1. Think of what design you want. It can be circular type, heart shape or box type. Since my studs is quite big, I decided to put it at behind pocket with inverted triangle design. 

2. After finalizing the design, it's time to put the studs spikes into denim. Get your 1 peso coin and use it to push the studs spikes all the way down so it wont come back and poke you.

3. Just continue doing 2nd steps until all studs are place. If you still have studs left, you can add another design at the front pocket or at the side, like what I did here. 

Tadaaaaaaaaah! There you have it! Your DYI Studs Shorts.

Tell me what do you think? I can't wait to see yours too! 

Happy crafting!

Nutrition Month

July is known to be Nutrition Month. In schools, they have activities wherein students become aware of the nutritional foods and preparing a balance diet foods consisting of fruits  and vegetables. Students also cook kakanin  like sapin-sapin, butchi-butchi, suman, casava, etc. They also have programs about valuing nutritional foods in our everyday lives. Maybe you are wondering right now why I'm blogging about this. Well, it's part of my post. My Sister made a fruitful/ veggie-licious crown for my lovely daughter's parade in school. I'm a frustrated artist (really?!) hehehe! I like to draw but drawings don't like me (boink!). Okay,okay, I tried but all I can do is drawing human sticks and simple shapes. To give you an idea, here's what my Sister made.

Thanks for the crown Sis! Great job! =)

2012 Theme: "Pagkain ng gulay ugaliin, araw-araw itong ihain!"  It focuses on encouraging Filipinos to increase consumption of vegetables to address micronutrient deficiencies and prevent non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes.
