It occurred to me yesterday, that I still have more than a month left of holidays (yay), but some of you unlucky ducks are heading back to school next week. Here are some easy DIYs to fill in your remaining days and help you get back into the mojo.
So my first little DIY is a Mexican inspired salad in a jar because jars are the best and a mess-free way of transporting salad around, especially for uni without a lunchbox. This salad is vegan and healthy and delicious.
These are the ingredients that I put in my jar.
I added some Mexican rice that I had made the night before into my jar, but you could also add another grain, some meat, cheese or sour cream to shake things up.
You can really fill your jar in any order. I put my salsa/dressing on the bottom so nothing goes soggy. I always wait until my quinoa is completely cool before I add it in.
And voila, you’re done!
I used to cover my books at school in collages I made out of old magazines.
I just made my collage on a piece of A4 paper because that generally is the size of my books. If you don’t have any old magazines you want to cut up, the free ones that you get in stores like Sportsgirl are really handy.
You can glue these onto your books or look for the ones that have a clear cover insert on the front - they’re super easy. Magazine pages with cool images always look good too!
These are fab when studying to mark a page or spot in your book. Even as book marks in a reading book.
I stuck flowers on the end of my paper clips, but buttons and things like that work well! I also bought jumbo paper clips, but little ones are fine too.
The flowers I bought had wire attached to the back, so I just attached them to the paper clip using that. I had originally intended to use a hot glue gun though, so if your flowers don’t have wire, you could try that.
And your super cute book marks are complete!
These didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped - I bought the wrong tape and they turned out pretty messy and bulky. The plus is though, they are pretty cushioned and soft. I would recommend something smaller, something like Washi tape.
I just cut a piece of tape and then wrapped it around the pencil until it was covered.
Good luck and I hope you all have a lovely year!
