Hello! DOOMSDAY IS COMING!! Just joking. It’s only school. Then again, I’m going to go along calling that doomsday. But there is nothing we can do. At all. So I guess that’s that.
Guilty Party airs the first episode on YouTube tomorrow! Who else is going to be watching it? Let me know what character you guys are most looking forward to. I think JR is going to be kind of funny, and I think Charlie is going to end up being my favorite because she reminds me a little of myself.
Anyone see Taylor Swift’s new Look What You Made Me Do music video? She totally dissed the past versions of herself! I think she’s going all Selena Gomez on us, and I like the direction her Reputation album is going.
Anyways, let’s go into the DIYs before I talk you guys to death.
- Watermelon Binder
You will need a binder or notebook, paint and a piece of white paper
Step One. Paint a streak of green down the side of your white paper. Yo don’t need to worry about getting it perfect, because it will still look cute even if it’s not perfect. Leaving a white space, use some pale pink paint for the rest to be the edible part of the watermelon. Let it dry
Step Two. Use a black marker or paint pen to draw on the seeds. Glue to your notebook or binder to finish. I rimmed mine in duct tape just to make it look more polished.
2. Tumblr Disney Emoji Dividers
You will need four printouts of a Tumblr background, five Mickey Mouse emojis and five pixel speech bubbles reading whatever is going in each tab.
This one is really simple, yet so freaking adorable.
The Only Step. Print off your Tumblr backgrounds. Cut out the emojis and glue one to the side of each page so that they look like dividers. It’s kind of hard to explain, but Jess Herz did Pokemon dividers in one of her Fandom School Supplies videos. A ot of YouTubers have actually done the emoji dividers, so there’s bound to be someone who explains it better than me. Glue the labels to the tabs and then you want to hole ouch the pages and insert them into a binder.
TIP- To save both paper and printer ink, you can use scrapbook paper from Micheal’s or some other craft store.
3. Eyes Binder/Notebook
All credit goes to Sea Lemon on YouTube.
You will need watercolors and paper. Also a binder or notebook.
The Only Step. Paint different types of eyes on your paper. some are open, some are closed.Use variety. Once you’re happy, let dry and add some diagonal stripes in the background. Glue to the binder or notebook to finish.
4. Stylish Pencils- Three Types
You will need pencils and acrylic paint. Also some cute quotes for the pencils.
Example One-Solid Color
Paint your pencil the selected color. It may take a few coats for it to look the way you want it to. Once it is dry, top it off with a fandom or just generally cute quote. I mat one that said ‘can we taco’, one that said ‘you’re unstoppable’ and a sharpie with some lyrics to Dollhouse, but the pink one shown above is one of my favorites.
It has a Ben Kowalewicz quote that reads ‘the teapot code’, which comes from the MTV ‘Diary Of Billy Talent’ special, when they were in London and his girlfriend made him go looking for a teapot set for some of their friends who were getting married, and he couldn’t find it, so he made a joke about it to the camera guy, and said ‘[bleep] the Da Vinci Code, It’s the Teapot Code!’
Example Two- Ombre
You will also need a metallic marker
For the ombre pencil, first paint it a base color. I found that black works the best. Then, take a metallic marker and just color a streak that covers the top third of the pencil. Then, if you want to, you can top it off with a short quote or a word. I wrote ‘Muggles’ because why not!
Example Three- Paint Drip
Paint your pencil a base color. Cover the eraser area with some tape. Then, you’ll want to open your bottle of paint and dip the top third of your pencil in the paint. Pull out and place upright in a cup. Allow the paint to drop. Once dry, you can either leave it like that, or add a quote. I added the quote, ‘Goodbye Ghost’, said once by the amazing Ben Kowalewicz.
5. Holographic Collage Binder
You will need tinfoil and magazines. Of course, if you have holographic paper, it will probably work better. And a binder or notebook would help.
Step One. Cut your tinfoil or holographic material to a size that will fit on your notebook or binder. Then cut out some hexagons from the magazines. I also cut out some other shapes. I have a few diamonds and some close cut shapes.
Step Two. Glue to the page in any sort of way that you are pleased with. Cut off the excess and apply to the notebook or binder.
6.(Fake) Designer Pencilcase
You will need a Ziploc bag, a patterned piece of paper, song lyrics and duct tape.
Step One. Cut your Ziploc back to the size that you need. Cut out your pattern and glue i the middle. I did one pencilcase rimming it in duct tape first, and it looked a little more polished, but it looks polished either way, so I don’t think it matters that much.
Step Two. Glue your song lyrics in the middle. For the pink pencilcase, I used lyrics from Billy Talent’s ‘Afraid Of Heights’ ad I rimmed the lyrics in pink duct tape, with some blak duct tape running underneath, but for the pizza pencilcase, where I used lyrics from Melanie Martinez’s ‘Mad Hatter’, I gave it a cartoony box feel. Ad your stationary inside to finish
Bonus Material: First Day Lookbook
Well, it’s supposed to be a lookbook, but i didn’t have a chance to take photos, so i’m just going to explain what I’m going to wear.
I’m going to wear some ripped jeans from Bluenotes, an AC/DC t-shirt, also from Bluenotes and a plaid flannel, from, you guessed it, Bluenotes. To accessorize, I’m simply going to wear a cat ears headband from Ardene and some wedge-heel sandals from Soft-Moc.
