I’ve been a kpop fan for a few years now and one thing I’ve noticed is the overwhelming amount of sexism. As you may or may not, HyunA’s “Red” was released recently. If you know HyunA, you know that she’s one hell of a sexy artist. She’s not modest either. Her lyrics display overflowing confidence.
TLDR at the bottom
I’ve been on a roll with DIYs lately and just decided to do another fairly easy one.
- Clear Tape
- Glue/Mod Podge
- Hot Glue Gun/E6000
- Necklace Chain
- Jump Rings (one for each pendant)
- Find a pin or a coin that you wouldn’t miss. Measure it and print out a picture that would fit on it. (If your picture is too big, bend it so it shows up like how you would like your pendant to look.)
- Get out some type of glue (a light glue like stick glue or mod podge) and glue your picture in place.
- Let your pendant dry if you have to, and then cut off any excess paper that hangs off of your pendant.
- Get some clear tape, and put it over your pendant. This will make it shiny and give it extra protection from things like water and also keep your picture in place.
- Cut off excess tape, but leave a small amount around the rim.
- Bend back the tape you left behind, this will help keep your picture in place.
- Get out some jump rings. If they’re big, leave them be, but if they’re small open them up.
- Using a glue gun or E6000/Goop (I recommend E6000/Goop), put some glue on the top back of your pendant and glue on your jump ring. If you opened yours, make sure the open part is facing up.
- Get out your chain. Slide the chain into the jump ring to attach the pendant.
- Now, close your jump ring if you have to. (In the video I used a nail cutter, but you could break a nail cutter doing that fyi.)
Made with a pin I didn’t care for.
Made with a 2 pence coin I had no use for.

I just got a new box for my crafting stuff, and I thought I’d decorate it a bit. So if you have anything in mind that you want to decorate, here you go! Materials:
- Some picture that you want on your box.
- Rubber cement, or some kind of glue.
- Clear Tape
- **Stickers and/or Decorative Tape that you can use to fill in for any open spaces you have left after putting in your pictures.
- Get out your pictures and your box that you want to decorate. Place the picture on the box in a design that you like (I did mine collage style).
- Get out your glue/rubber cement and use a little bit just to keep your pictures in place.
- Get out your clear tape and start taping over the pictures to seal them in. Make sure you let a little tape stick to the side of your box, so everything is kept in place.
Here’s my final product: Step by step video instructions:
So here I am with another Kpop diy and I actually made a video for this one, albeit it’s super long… But yeah. Here’s some step-by-step instructions on how to make some super cheap Kpop keychains~
- Rectangular Keychain ID Tags. Mine were super cheap, I got them at the 99¢.
- Printer paper
Yep, that’s all you need.
- Measure the perimeter of the inside space (where the picture goes) of your keychain.
- Open up a Word document and input a rectangular shape, make it’s height and width measures match your keychain.
- Insert picture into the rectangle by double clicking on it, going to “fill”, “fill efects”, “picture or texture”, then choose your picture and hit OK.
- Print out your pictures and add them to your keychains!
Here is the video, which has step by step instructions in detail. I suggest you watch it via YouTube, because there is a skip guide in the description.

This is going to be the first post into my new segment(?) KIY (Kpop-It-Yourself). So recently, I got a new phone! Thank the good lord my old one was so messed up lol. Anyway, I have a really nice Kris case a friend gifted me that I can no longer use! So, I found a solution.
- Clear Phone Case
- Card-stock (you can use regular paper, but card-stock would be sturdier.)
- Hole Puncher
- Select the rectangle with the rounded edges. It should look like this (and it will say “rounded rectangle” when you hover over it.):
- Now, click on your page to insert the shape.
- Double click on the shape.
- Go to the “format” tab.
- Go to “size” at the far right of your screen and enter the length and width of your phone case. Your shape should look similar to this(depending on your phone):
- Save the word document!!! Then, print this, cut it out, and see if it fits your phone case. If it doesn’t, adjust the measurements accordingly.
- Highlight the shape and then press command+c/cntrl+c. After, press command+v/cntrl+v and paste it until the whole document is covered. Now we are going to insert our picture!!! Almost done!
- Now, you want to double click on that shape go to the fill option. You want to choose the “Fill Effects” option.
- You should be taken to a page that looks somewhat like this:
- You should now go to the “Picture or Texture” tab.
- Click “Choose Picture”. Choose your picture, and then press “OK”.
- Now print and cut out, now you have interchangeable case slips! (Note, you don’t have to go through this whole process again to make a new one, just copy and paste, then you can change the picture from the fill!)
These are the ones I made, I haven’t actually gotten a clear case yet, but I can’t wait until I do!
As you can see, I have a thing for Yixing, Kris, and men in beanies. lol
Just keep swimming until next time!
