How are all of my lovely ladies doing? I missed all of you loads! I know, I know I have been missing for a awhile and I apologize from the bottom of my heart! I have been crazy busy with other things (yes us bloggers have a life too) so keeping a balance can get a bit difficult but it’s all good! I’m back now 😉
How was the month of October for everyone? I had a very busy one (pretty obvious). Well now that November is here (time is going by WAY too fast) I thought why not welcome this month with a fun DIY! I had posted this on my Instagram (@fashion.with.nelo) a while back, and many of you were interested.
So for those who are in love with fashion, this is a very fun DIY for you. And for those who are not into fashion but love interior design and always changing up their rooms, this is a DIY for you also<3
In my room, I have set up a “mini” L’Noor studio. For a while now, I have been searching for some good designer books to read and to decorate my work area a bit. I have found a few, and boy aren’t they expensive?! I don’t mind spending, but ehhh for a book I probably might read ONCE, and never touch again $60-$100…I don’t think so.
So I thought, “hey! Do it yourself girl”. And I did. This was the most easiest, and fastest DIY’s I have ever done, and you will love it as well. I spent under 5$/10$, YES you read it right. My “books” are a bit big, I just love exaggerated things but you can choose a thinner shape it’s totally up to you!
So lets get started shall we?
2/3 card boxes (Michaels 3-4$, used coupon 50% off)
White gift wrap (Dollar Tree)
Tape (Dollar Tree)
Alphabetical stickers ($2.99 Michaels, used coupon 50% off)
A brain (just kidding)
Step 1: Gather all of your materials
Step 2: place one box over the white gift wrap and cut to the size of the box.
Step3: Tuck in the folds for a good clean finish, and tape down as you go along.
Step 4: When you come to the corner of the box(at the top) cut diagonally to the corner of the gift wrap, half way.
Step 5/6/7: That cut will allow you to fold the remaining gift wrap easily, remember to tape down!
Step 8/9/10/11/12 : Follow the images carefully, I have shown you how to fold and tuck in the gift wrap for a nice a clean look (it will look like a white book once completed).
Step 13/14: You are now ready to place the Alphabetical stickers on the side of your “book”. Choose whatever you please, examples maybe : YSL, CHANEL, VOGUE, PRADA.
Step 15: You are done! See how quick and easy that was?! You can place your designer books anywhere in your room! I just place them on my desk, with a fall scented candle.
The other option you may do is, get a book you already have at home and do the same exact technique I just listed.
