Neat BTS Supplies for that ‘Doomsday’ That We Can’t Stop! (and the end of #TASHToSchool2017)

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.

  1. 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.

 

I hope that you guys enjoyed this post and that these DIYs will definitely help you guys through school. Remember to like and follow my blog to support me and male sure you don’t miss any other great posts and content from me. For the last time before doomsday,

#TASHToSchool2017: 3 Cute Notebook Designs

More notebooks! Simply had too many that I needed to make another post just devoted to notebooks! I do hope that you guys like the last one. If anything looked different, that’s because I was typing on my tablet, and probably will be for a little longer. Maybe a week. Enough talk. I like to keep my introductions short.

1. Lily Pulitzer inspired Notebook

You will need a computer and a notebook or binder.

The Only Step. Go to happilyhope.WordPress.com and print of one of her binder cover printables. Glue down and rim in duct take for a smooth finish.

2. Song Lyric Notebook

You will need a notebook, some lace or other material that is similar, cardstock paper and some sort of label.

Step One. Cover the notebook with your cardstock paper and use the material chosen above to section it off. Believe it or not, I used a drawer liner, and it worked just fine.

Step Two. Write the song lyrics in the gaps. You can write the lyrics to just one song, songs by one artist or collage a bunch of songs that you like or lyrics that you like.

3. Sunset Quote Notebook
You will need paint inthe colors of through sunset and ocean and a notebook.

Step One. Paintthe notebook in an ombre over the top two thirds. Once that is dry, paint the ‘ocean’ with blue. Wait for it to dry, then paint on the wave crests in white.

Step Two. Once the entire notebook is 100 percent dry, write on some smart aleck quite in black Sharpe and draw some details to enhance. Because I was painting my sketchbook I wrote ‘Art does not have match your sofa’, a Suzy Toronto quote. Seal with anything you have to seal it with to finish.

Thanks for reading my blog. As usual, you can show your support by following my blog and liking my posts. I hope you enjoyed these notebooks, and also my last set, DIY Tumblr Notebooks 2017.  Hopefully next week I’ll have a full BTS post up, and some more summery stuffs well, because the summer aint over yet. Post soon,

the crutch1. The Crutch by Billy Talent

This is a song meant to be played LOUD AS POSSIBLE. It’s punk and rock going back to their original Billy Talent vibes. One of the best songs off their new album Afraid Of Heights, for which they were nominated for Rock Album of the Year at the 2017 Junos. I can’t get enough of this song or this album. Ot his band, for that matter. Ben Kowalewicz’s voice is so unique.

A few years after she was axed form The Voice , Melanie Martinez blew everybody away with her Dollhouse EP, closely followed by her full length album, Crybaby, featuring the first two tracks on Dollhouse.

3. River Below by Billy Talent

A great song by a great artist. Have you heard any of her new stuff on Hopeless Fountain Kingdom? It is so good. Colors is a song about something taking over someones life, weather it’s drugs or work or such. Great song.
