Minutes DIY : Old jeans to Pencilcase roll (No sew project)

It's close to the end of school season.
Mei Mei turns "Grumpy" today because she have some trouble
with her coloring pencils.

Well, the original paper case for the color pencil got wore off.
I offer her a small plastic drinking bottle to keep
all her color pencils but her still not happy.
The color pencils are all in various length and size.

However, Mei Mei still  prefer to have her color pencil 'display'
 in a proper manner when she used them.

Well, just my luck.
I saw a piece of old corduroy laying nearby,
(actually I plan to reused it for something else)

I cut a piece of fabric from the pants.

cut 2 row of tiny holes along the length

Now, everyone is lining up like a rainbow
Hope you like this impromptu DIY. 

Have a nice day and thanks for drop by.

TP rolls toy Binoculars - easy n cute

Today is Mei Mei arts class again
This week her homework is TP rolls binoculars...

After browsing through Pinterest...
She still not happy with the samples she found...

So, this is her creations after some 'upgrade' from
what she learn from the internets...

She did it within an hour.
Yes, she is very proud of her works
and so am I.

She used some old strings which I salvaged earlier from
old drinking bottle (the green and blue ones)

Cut some flower shape cardboard...for the 'lens'
wrap the lens with large roll of sticky tape / cellophane tapes
to make an 'easy instant ' lens'  glass.

Connect the tp rolls with a empty staples bullets box.
wrap with color paper and decor with washi tapes.

Add to little cute eraser owls to enhance the 'watch out' level.
Love it!
