4 Fun Things You Should Do Before 2016

It’s time for you to enjoy these last few days of 2015!

It’s just really mournful if you spend these last few days with boredom, unfinished works or even tears. Get over it for awhile and try these five fun things you should do before 2016!

Post-It, Confess-It

I’m pretty sure that everyone knows post-it or well-known as sticky note. To play this game, here are the things you need :

– Sticky Notes
– Pen
– At least one friend or more

In this game, you can make someone’s darkest day turn into the brightest one. You only need to write a compliment about the person you want to stick the sticky note to and stick it on their shoulder or anywhere else that you think it’s proper to stick on. Don’t forget to say ‘hello’ and smile while you stick the note on them, don’t just walk away and stick the note on them or you’ll be called freak. Let’s see how people react on what you do and I guarantee you that it’ll be the best moment that you’ll never forget!


Spend the Whole Night with Friends

Have you ever thought about running in the middle of the night? According to research, things that are done in midnight are usually sincere. Try to do this in New Year’s Eve with your friends. You could also do the “Post-It, Confess-It” game while doing this at the same time. Just enjoy the night, make an endless conversation and make memories!


Pretend as a Tourist

Most folks rarely visit their own city’s parks or everything that is being the typical thing of their city until it makes tourists are interested to visit them. Although you are the real citizen in your city but strangers never know who you really are anyway. Bring a camera, dress up like a tourist or maybe if you are fluent in speaking foreign language, you could speak with a language that you think you’re expert in it. Sometimes weird moments are things that are always be remembered.


Throw a BYOE Party

What does BYOE Party stand for? It stands for Bring Your Own Everything Party. It’s for the ones who tend to have fun in a house instead of being playful outside. But the ones who are more interested to chill at house also can enjoy the moment by throwing this BYOE Party. You only need to invite your friends to bring everything they have such as foods, drinks, movies, books or even underwears?! Hmm.. it’s up to you for the last one. BYOE Party is the cheapest party where you could enjoy the day without needing too much money to spend.

Which one is your favorite? These fun things above are things that I’ve always wanted to do with my friends. But seriously, these things are worth to be done. Having fun with friends is the most exciting thing to do. Throw your phone away and start living in the moment!

How To Make Scrapbook With Recycled Paper

As I’ve promised on 3 Fun Things I Do When I’m Bored ‘s post that I would post how I did my scrapbook with recycled paper where you don’t need to buy new papers and stuff, you only need old newspapers which are left out in your garage.

At first I didn’t mean to make a scrapbook at all, I even had no idea and didn’t know why that I actually made it eventually. I got a task from my Art teacher at school to make a recycled paper. I was really not into it at first because it wasn’t my thing at all (and still not, I guess because I’m a consumptive person eh?). But however I had to finish this work with my group.

I’m not gonna explain how to make recycled paper, because the needed stuff seems complicated and I’m pretty sure, 75% of people would rather buy recycled papers at Scrapbook Store instead of making it themselves. And here are things you need to make your own fancy scrapbook :

needed stuff

  • Notebook
  • Recycled Paper
  • Glue (I used glue for wood because it sticks better than paper glue)
  • Scissor
  • Random Buttons
  • Any other stuff you may think it’s cute for your scrapbook

HOW TO :

  1. Take the hard cover off of the book. It’s either the front or the back page.

  2. Glue the hard cover with recycled paper neatly.

  3. Pierce the covered hard cover holes with scissor/knife or anything you think it’s sharp to use.

  4. And your current scrapbook looks like mine so far

  5. Now, it’s time to spice up your masterpiece. I made “Okay? Okay” sign for my scrapbook’s back page. And I used ice cream sticks for short quotes, letters from magazine, buttons and lace that I got from my button’s case as bonus. Use your creativity to make the most fancy scrapbook evah!

  6. The scrapbook is done, BUT it still doesn’t look like a scrapbook to me. Let’s make a cover for it. Use duplex carton for its cover, adjust the size with your own scrapbook.

  7. After that, cover the duplex carton with another carton or paper. It’s for the inside of scrapbook cover, so it won’t look messy. If you’ve finished covering the duplex carton, reverse the other side of duplex carton and cover it with recycled paper. If you’re running out of recycled paper, you can use carton/paper/fabric/etc.

  8. Back to your notebook, twine the notebook ring from the top to the bottom of notebook with scrapbook rope (I don’t know what it is called exactly but I found this rope in Scrapbook Store).

    Do not tie the rope, take the scrapbook cover you’ve pierced, put the rope in the hole and twine the scrapbook cover like you did to your notebook.

  9. Voila! It’s done! You can do anything you want with your scrapbook cover. And this is how my scrapbook looks like,

     So, that was how I made my scrapbook and I hope you’re inspired to do the same. It’s really fun to do. Take some pictures, print ’em out and stick ’em on your scrapbook. Have a great weekend! 🙂
