Spice up your folder!

4In this post I’m challenging your inner creativity to make something different for your boring folders, notebooks, etc.! I had this plain blue folder that I wanted to use sometimes at school or other lessons, but did not love it a lot. That’s when the idea of drawing a leopard print struck me. It was really not that difficult and it actually turned out better than expected. Following the easy steps below, you can achieve similar results using your own ideas!

В този пост предизвиквам вътрешната ви креативност, за да направите нещо различно от скучните ви папки, тетрадки и пр.! Исках да използвам тази изчистена синя папка понякога за училище, уроци, но не ми се харесваше много. Тогава ми дойде идеята да изрисувам леопардов принт на нея. Не беше толкова трудно и всъщност се получи по-добре от очакваното. Като следвате тези лесни стъпки, ще може да направите нещо подобно, използвайки собствените си идеи! Continue reading

DIY: Paper Magazine Diamond

DSC_0696

Hello everyone! Today’s post is connected to the material that I work with very often at my fashion design courses – paper! It’s more than impressive how many things we can do with it, it has nothing similar to the things you can do with photoshop. What I’ve prepared for you is a diamond-looking collage made from triangles with patterns from magazine pages. It’s just a little time-consuming, but much worth it and fun to do when bored or have some extra time to waste :) Continue reading

I was inspired by Dior and Geneva from a pair and a spare to make these double pearl earrings and now I’m sharing it all with you! What’s quite surprising is how easy this DIY is, but also how often I wear these ones – doesn’t matter if it’s at school, a weekend laid-back stroll somewhere in the park, or at a party – you can never do it wrong! As people say (and I try to learn to use that expression as well), you can dress the look up or down with these babes. It always looks good, on anyone, on anything! Continue reading

DIY: Christmas Cards

DSC_0229-horzWelcome people! There are only 2 days left till Christmas! Perhaps most of you have already prepared gifts for your loving ones and are wondering what kind of cards to add so as to spice up your presents. I have a couple of ideas on how to make easy, not expensive, however, very gorgeous holiday cards. Good luck!

  • Christmas Bauble Card
    This one is quite simple – you choose 3 or more of your favourite holiday wrapping paper, cut circles (could be in various shapes as well) and stick them onto a cardboard (I used light blue). You can draw some strings as well.

  • Holiday Tree Card
    Firstly, draw a Christmas tree that is completely the same on both sides because we are going to cut it in the middle. Then fold in two and cut the cardboard the way I’ve shown in the pictures. After that fold at the three ends of the tree. Stick every part of the cardboard to another cardboard (diffeerent colour is advisable) except the actual tree. Now you can put/draw any decoration you want.

  • Snowman Card
    Draw two different sizes of circles on a pice of white paper. Cut them and glue them to the cardboard which you’ll be using for your card. Draw a smile, a nose, buttons (as you can see, I added blue beads instead of drawing them). For the scarf – I cut some ribbon and made it look like a scarf.

  • Holiday Dress Card
    This is the card I gave to my fashion design teacher and she really liked it!
    I used red wrapping paper, drew the skirt and the top, and sticked them to a green cardboard. Then I added a little bit of ribbon in the middle to make the dress look more life-like. I put some Christmas washi tape on the left. In order to make it look a little more festive, I added these sparkly jewels/beads. It’s pretty, isn’t it?
