I've been really busy these few days as I've just started work!
Also on top of that I'm still trying out the samples I've mentioned so it's hard to do any updates as it'll be easier to make a comparison of a before and after with a longer duration of testing. Which, will be coming next week!
In the meantime it's definitely gonna be quite quiet for now because my work is going to take up most of my schedules.
ANYWAY. I do have something to share, it's not necessarily beauty related. But I kinda wanna write abt it so here goes.
I bought these lovelies today at Tokyu Hands because they were so adorable and cheap!!! Basically, these stamps reacts to heat the same way those "eraserable pen ink" work. They are $1.80 each so I thought of getting a few to use for my memos and note taking. It's just so cute.
So the point of me sharing abt it is that because Tokyu Hands are charging $3 for the box. And I'm just like, hell no.
So being me, I've decided make one myself >:D
So first things first! I drew out the plan on how I want the box to be. I designed it based on a basic box container layout.
After cutting the shapes out, I tested its fitting with the stamps to make sure all is good.
I find the carboard a little ugly with the stains so I used duct tape as a skin. It's more presentable that way and the plastic exterior can help the stamps slide in easier.
Then I score side to help the glue stick better. I glue the pieces down onto the Tokyu Hands paper bag which I got from the purchase. I thought it'll be a nice touch integrating where I got it from. Not bad eh? eh? When the glue dries I slowly wrap the paper present-and-book-binding style so they can help hold everything together.
I was concerned with using only glue to support the whole box as it didn't seem practical. So I figured maybe by using the paper's body it might give it more support and durability.
It turns out a lot better than I expected. I was planning to make a cover for it too but I think it's not necessary. The box is a snug fit so I think the stamps will be very secured inside. Really happy with the outcome! I'm really impressed that I mamaged to make this in 45mins too! That's a great improvement and it made me feel like my experience have paid off.
I also can't wait to use it soon!
I'll try to update soon with more beauty stuffs.
