Weekend Project by Larina

Post Melbourne and post Bali - 1 word - exhausted.

Thank God it's a Sunday and I got to recuperate. I think I lost my backbone today. I  just want to lie down on my bed and slowly . . . progress to my couch later in the day. LOL!

But still, I didn't want to waste my Sunday being a lazy worm (although it's pretty satisfying doing so) so I decided to make a couple of button earring/ring boxes, which I have made one for myself awhile ago.

The tools needed for this simple project are as follows:-
1. A recycled box which is too cute to throw away;
2. An old t-shirt which you no longer wish to wear;
3. Pieces of foam paddings which you can get from the casings of your electronics. Otherwise, collect them from any IT shop nearby you. I'm sure they are more than willing to dispose of them!;
4. Scissors;
5. Glue;
6. Needles and threads.

the necessary tools to start my project

Foam paddings I collected "free of charge" from the IT shop below my office! A good way to recycle aye?

Wrap the foam padding with your old black t-shirt which you've cut into pieces (I personally chose black colour as it will bring out the colour of your accessories :>)and secure it with threads and glue. Another good way to recycle your old t-shirt! Yay!
The completed box!

And another one.

This is the box from Starbucks containing mooncakes before this. This will be my gift to my Sis, Bernie who is a Starbucks maniac! LOL!

My collection of button earrings

The cost of this project? Zero! Or should I say - priceless (*cheeky grin*)
