Supplies: Dish washing liquid, acrylic paint (metallic if you like), card stock, paint brush and clear tape.
1.) Start by cutting a piece of card stock to a size of your choice. My card stock was approximately 3 in x 4 in.
2.) Once your card stock is cut, decide what message you would like to share on your scratch off – it can be stamped or drawn. You can also take this time to decorate the card stock as much as you like.
3.) After your message has been designed, cut a piece of clear tape to cover the entire scratch off area. The clear tape will make the scratch off process easy-peasy.
4.) Mix half dish washing liquid with half acrylic paint.
5.) Once the dish washing liquid and paint have been mixed, using the paint brush paint the tape strip to cover up your message.
6.) Let it dry and here’s what you will get.
Since this is such an easy DIY, you can use this idea as an invitation or a cute way to drop a note to someone .
This is a pretty quick DIY project that I’ve had on my list for quite some time and I thought today was a good day to try it out.
What you’ll need:
Honey (packages will do), Vaseline/Petroleum Jelly, Sugar, Small container (mine once housed buttons) and a Spoon.
1.) Using the spoon, mix 1 tsp of honey, 1 tsp of sugar and a 1/2 tsp of vaseline in the container very well.
Your finished product should look like this.
2.) Gently rub a finger full of the scrub on your lips for about 30 seconds and then rinse with warm water.
3.) Apply your favorite lip balm, lipstick or gloss and see how different your lips feel and look.

Happy Sunday! Here is a really easy and cool DIY project to kick off the week. I saw an image of this project on Tumblr and I decided to try it out.
Supplies: Fabric (new or scrap), paperclips and scissors
Cut a 9 inch long piece of fabric that is a little under an inch thick and tie a bow to the top of the paperclip. And you’re done!
I’m avid reader and I plan on using these babies as bookmarks; although I have tons. You can never have too many though, especially when they’re cute. These can also be used to clip papers together and keep things nice and neat. If you’re an organization queen like me, these paperclips can give your paperwork a boost.
