DIY: Can and Scratch Pad

Just sharing these simple DIYs that I did this January.

The first one is a money container for the 52 Week Money Challenge that's been popular lately.  I modified the amount though because it's too "high" for my budget.

Materials needed:  Empty potato chips container, washi tape/s of your choice and I also used double sided tape.
Just cover the "can" with the washi tape of your choice.  I use double sided tape because I thought one roll of washi tape is not enough to cover the whole can.  Anyway, in time maybe I'll peel off the plastic that is covering the sticky tape and put a paper and write anything I want around it.


Next, is my "scratch notebook" where I put any idea or lists like wishlist and booklist and anything and everything under the sun that I wanted to write.

Material needed:  Kraft notes scratch pad, old stamps, adhesive book cover and I also cut a "Shower!" word from a magazine.
I just put the stamps all over the cover of the Kraft Pad and stick the Shower! word at the center then used and adhesive book cover to cover the pad so that it can lasts a whole year and done!

using an adhesive book cover for the first time

Got a little hard time putting the book cover because it's my first time using it.  It's best to lay down the thing to cover on a flat and clean surface and slowly but surely fold the edges.


Another tada! Here's my scratch notebook chill-in with our furry and well behaved pet (hehehe).

Thanks for reading. Till then. Bye!
