If you have your ears pieced, I’m betting you experience the same dramas as me every morning: I call it the ‘I can’t find my second pair’ struggle. As a lover of small and shiny things, I own quite a lot of earrings and it’s so hard to keep them organised, especially when they’re just…everywhere. Continue reading

DIY Diary/Notebook Lock Under 5 Minutes! – Video Tutorial

IMG_4393

Okay, okay, I know this post is probably long overdue but I’m excited to share it with you nevertheless.

So remember when I posted my first DIY project ever on this blog about “How to Make a Super Easy Diary Lock“? Well, I realised that the way I explained it might not have been very clear and the pictures were hard to see – so maybe it didn’t seem so ‘super easy’ after all…  I’ve had a few requests on making an updated version for this tutorial and I’ve finally had the chance to do one. (Yes, I do listen to your suggestions and love to hear them!)

Hence, here it is. Tutorial 2.0 on how to DIY a diary/notebook lock in under 5 minutes.  Continue reading

5 Minutes to Make: A Ribbon Bookmark

5 Minutes to Make a Ribbon Bookmark - By Miss Caly

I love to read. My bedroom shelf is a jungle of novels, all piled one on top of the other, just waiting to be read. Call me a book-hoarder, enthusiastic collector or whatever. I love books. But despite this obsession, it never really occurred to me that I didn’t have a proper book mark until now. Before, all I’ve been using to mark my pages is leftover paper scraps, polaroid pictures and anything else that worked, really. Quite sad, isn’t it?

Well, sad it is, no more! Because today’s DIY is a shoutout to all you book lovers out there, in need of a real page marker. Today’s project is extra special because it only takes 5 minutes to make. (And not to mention, it looks quite classy, too.) Continue reading

Easy DIY “Gold Foil” Wall Decor!

IMG_1010

Woah, this past week has been so busy and chaotic that I didn’t get time to make a Fri-DIY yesterday! (Of course, school is to blame yet once again).

Anyway, everything is a-okay now because I’m back with another fun project in store for you! Going along with this week’s Gold theme, I’ve decided to make some wall art for what I shall now call SaturDIY, woooooo! These were made using wannabe “gold foil”, which was basically just gold contact paper. I was looking at all the beautiful gold foil wall art on Pinterest and instantly fell in love. Unfortunately I didn’t have any gold foil lying around so I thought contact paper would do just fine as a cheaper substitute. I was proven right!

These look great in a set and the best thing is that you can customise them however you like!

p.s. I bought my gold contact paper from Big W, but you can probably find them at other department stores and craft shops.

All you’ll need:

  • Gold contact paper
  • Black and white cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

Steps:

Ten Minutes-To-Make-Monday: Candy-themed Labelled Bulldog Clips

ten mins to make labelled bulldog clip

Be excited because from today I’ve decided to introduce a new idea for my blog! As you might have already noticed, I’ve been posting a lot of do-it-yourself projects for ‘Fri-DIY’ and also free printables on Wednesday (I wish I had a nice catchy phrase for that!) But today I thought I might change things up a little by doing a ‘Minutes-to-make-Monday’!

So basically, on some Mondays I will be posting really quick crafts and other fun projects that you can make under a certain amount of time. For example, today’s project took under ten minutes. Got it?

Another thing I will be starting (yay, so many new things) is a weekly theme for my blog posts. For this week, I’ve decided to focus on Candy (because who doesn’t love Candy?)

Anyway, now that we have all that out of the way, let’s begin today’s project. For me it took around ten minutes to make one cute bulldog clip. They’re super easy to make and are perfect for keeping your things organised in a funky way!

Easy DIY Phone Cases!

Yep, you heard it. Today’s Fri-DIY is going to be some easy phone cases!

For a lot of people, phones have become a device that is used almost every single waking hour of the day. For some reason, my phone always ends up somewhere within my reach, even when I’m not using it. Is it just me, or does anyone feel the urge to continuously check their phones, as if it’s a ticking time bomb that needs to be monitored? Sometimes I turn it on to check the time, but as soon as I get it out, I forget what I need to do. Ah!! technology these days…

IMG_9984

Anyway, since my phone is something I see almost every day, I like to change its ‘look’ every now and then, just so that it doesn’t get too boring. Sure there are lots of fancy phone cases around at the shops, but I think making one would be more personal to me.

Today I’m going to share with you 3 different phone cases I made over the holidays. They’re super easy and only require a few materials. I hope you like them!
