Washi Tape (from Daiso & Target)
Clothespins (from Daiso)
STEP 1: Get your clothespin and washi tape
STEP 2: Stick the clothespin onto the tape and cut!
Step 3: Trim of the excess tape (I was actually able to use the excess tape to stick on the other side)
Step 4 & 5: Use your fingers to smooth it out
Here's a super fun and easy way to dress up your clothespins! They're perfect for closing up party bags, presents, hanging photos, etc. I've recently been on a washi tape craze (cuz they're SO flippin' cute and colorful) and have been thinking up ideas of what I can do with all this tape. I'll definitely have more washi tape related DIY tutorials in the future.
On to a new topic... I've changed my blog name to Sherry Lou Studio Blog! Why? Because I'm planning on pursuing my dreams and opening up a shop at www.SherryLouStudio.com and I want this blog to not only continue to have fun DIY tutorials and outfit posts, but to also document my journey designing and hand making the clothes, pillows and other artsy items I sell. Sherry Lou Studio will also feature vintages clothes and artwork by undiscovered talented artists. I've been working on this project for a while now (on top of working a 9 to 5 job) and I'm almost ready to open the shop soon! This has been my dream since I was in diapers (because, yes, designing and e-commerce has been on my mind as a baby) and I've finally told myself "enough is enough," just DO IT. I hope everything I design and create will help make your life more enjoyable and fun, hence the new slogan "MAKE. LIFE. FUN."
I still work a 9 to 5 day job, cuz I kinda have to eat, but I'm super excited and thrilled to be doing this during my off time. I keep hearing over and over again if you really want something then you'll do anything to make it happen. No excuses. I could make a long list of excuses on why I can't do this, #1 being "I work a full-time job and am too tired after work to do anything." But I want to prove to myself that it's possible. I'm thankful for all of your continual support and for helping me believe in myself. Now let's get crafting and MAKE. LIFE. FUN!
