Have you changed your skin?

He bought a really nice tumbler for me from Starbucks last month (I guess) and the stated on the tumbler "CREATE YOUR OWN TUMBLER" with some instruction on it. So, I decided to create new skin for my tumbler and happily can called it my own. Only takes a day to finished up the work. The interesting part is, you can put my name on it. Means that no one can steal it from me for sure unless he/she will take out the tumbler's skin of course. Attention people, let us make something that we can be PROUD of because we MADE it! 

Before the MAKEUP!
I choose to have red poppies as the theme because really it was one of my favourite flower besides hydrangea, peony and ranunculus. See at the layout, it was easy rite? Bet you can do it too with your own creative designs!  Go go, change your tumbler's skin now!


Yeay! What a cute tumbler!

{LovelyIdeas} Paper Roses

Seriously, I am so fond of paper and I have tonnes of colorful paper at my house. The appetite for paper are much more worst than food! While scrolling up and down into the web, I found this such an inspirational tutorial on how to make a paper roses...It was gorgeous and yet so simple. The tutorial was shown by Rachel Grace at Heart of Light. I copied the tutorial just in case I need it for future reference...huhu. Enjoy and be creative people!

1. Cut the paper into squares 


2. Fold the paper into half and trimmed into petal shape (the imperfect shape is ok!)

3. Once you have a nice pile of trimmed petals, start rolling them between your fingers. Form them into little tubes.

4. Roll the petal back up (over the glue) and hold for a few second so it can set up. This will be the center of the flower.

5. Repeat the same steps as with the second petal. You're holding the flower in your left hand, spreading out a new petal with the lower fingers and applying glue to the base corners.

6. Growing flower. Continue to add more petals. You'll want the petals to flare out more and or as you work your way along. Eventually, you'll end up with a nice full flower.

7. There's really no exact finishing point. You can add fewer petals if you don't want your flower completely flat on the bottom or if you want it narrower. You can add more to make it extra full.
