DIY: Personalized Card Holder Using Deco Tapes!

Taking a quick break from work.

If you have been following me on Instagram or on Twitter (midnight_plue), you’d see me showing a bit of my latest addiction, tapes. Yup, decoration tapes, washi tapes, deco tapes, sticker tapes, fabric tapes etc… They are all TAPES.

I lost my Touch n Go card holder which I bought from Taiwan last year, and I was really bummed. I really liked it and had updated it with a nice lace-y tape to make it look nicer, and due to my clumsiness and the evil LRT tracks, I lost it. Forever.

I couldn’t find any replacement which was an instant love for me, so I bought a lanyard and a transparent plastic card holder. Being really bored and unhappy with it’s look, I decided to play around with the tapes I have on hand. Took me an hour to complete this, because of the finishing! The darker red tapes were the ones that took most of my time!

And that’s my latest DIY. Cost much lesser than collecting makeup, so I think I maybe moving towards DIY and crafting for a while, whenever I have time. No, I am still very much in love with my blushes and nail polishes, but I am not that attracted to the current season’s makeup items.

Now I need another pair of smaller, thinner scissors… and of course… more tapes!
