【DIY|自制】The Preparation of the Final 50|终极50之预备篇

November 16, 2014, Sunday
✈1
In 2013, I made 16 different Christmas cards two weeks before Christmas!! 2014 of Chinese New Year the half month before I made 30 Chinese New Year cards!! Is like keep on challenge myself, so in 2014 a month before Christmas, I've already start working on the Christmas card!!


Since my two experiences before I knew how tired would it be so I bought these from Taobao during March, was thinking like I don't want to make anything on this year, just post the purchased one are totally fine!! But when look at them, they're not like something priceless and I got so many of them was just because they're really cheap, so I decide to attach one extra little "accessories" to that!!


I typed "useful Christmas present" on Google and Youtube, it came out something like candle, candy, mug, phone case and etc...Candle?? I don't people would that kind of time and mood to light at the candle anyway and candles are pretty heavy, if something light......what I can think of is those I can got it from Ikea those little white candles!! Chocolate?? I'm worry the chocolate would melt before it reach to the receiver!! Candy?? Umm...I don't even like candy, how can you expect me to send some candy duh!! Cup or mug?? First came to my mind is how much would it costs to the postage??? Phone case??? Is that weird to ask everyone what's your phone modal ya?? Even so I got the answer, how do I know the person like it or not???
********************************************************************************
2013年的圣诞,奇迹的在前两个星期前做了16个不同的卡片,2014年新年的前半个月做了不可任务的30张!   进行的不断挑战,有人可知道我为了这个圣诞我可是一踏进11月的时候,就开始紧张了,之前都觉得不够时间,所以我说我今年就一定要在一个月前就要开始准备,由于之前都真的真的做到半死,所以三月的时候就在淘宝淘了圣诞卡回来,想说这次就真的寄卡就算了!!

 就正是因为它们是淘宝淘回来的,价钱很便宜,所以才会买那么多,不过一想到很多人也是有上淘宝的啊,会不会他/她在淘宝看到价钱,那么便宜,觉得很廉价,就会觉得我送的什么便宜的东西而不会在意啊!   所以就很死咯。。。又再死都要想一个好的备件出来,想说要一些实用一点的礼物会是什么啊??   


打着“useful Christmas present”的字眼在Google,在Youtube,他们所放的蜡烛,糖果,巧克力,茶杯,手机壳等等的,我都想过。。。蜡烛??   应该不会有人那么诗情雅意的会点着蜡烛,边看书还是边工作的吧??!!   加上蜡烛那种漂亮的那么重,难道真的送Ikea那种白色的那种么???   再来是巧克力和糖果,想说那个邮差应该不是每个都是坐van车去送信的吧,这么热的天气,巧克力会不会溶掉啊? 糖果??   我自己又不吃糖果,又要送人糖果,真的说不去吧!。。。茶杯??   光看就是知道重了,几份的话是没关系,但是50份,别人不说我傻,我都觉得自己是不是神经线断掉了!。。。。。手机壳,这个很难,我不可能一个一个去问,你的手机是什么款的吧! 即使是,他人也许也不会喜欢,就好像“我不是在你心里,我怎么知道你几时要吃饭,几时要吃面啊???   
So in the end, I'm still move back to my originally idea, started looking some DIY which are made by paper!! Gradually I saw the tag on the candy jar, actually that's a pretty good idea!! A tag which can be as a bookmark or as a decorations to decorate on tress or hang it on your notice board in your office, right??
********************************************************************************
结果我还是朝着卡片纸的方向去,从会动的卡片慢慢看到有些Youtuber会在那个装糖果的玻璃罐上绑上一个tag,所以就开始想到我可以做一个tag,而这个tag是可以当书签又可以当装饰挂在圣诞树上或工作桌旁的布告栏上啊!

 So got the idea now, have to start prepare the materials!! Got all this from a shop named Craft Haven at 1U, the bridge between Old Wing and New Wing on 2nd floor!! Seriously I just went in to the shop without any idea I want to buy!! Hence not surprisingly I was standing inside the shop there looking at the materials to think of an idea that I was happy with for almost an hour!! In the end my legs are even tired than my mind!!
********************************************************************************
是有了概念,但总不能一张卡那样罢了,上面也一定要有一些设计!   以上的都是在1U,Old Wing和New Wing中间桥梁,二楼的Craft Haven店买的,其实去到那家店的时候,我还不知道我要怎样的设计,所以我就站在店里站了很久很久。。。那家店不是很大,的我却可以在里面将近一小时,因为我就是站在一大堆材料面前想设计,我想说我想到不会累,倒是站到双脚很累很酸!哈哈哈!!

Thus after standing for so long, of coz something came up in my mind, I found this snow globe stamp chop which's I like it so much because it reminds me that I would buy one as a souvenirs from the places I've been travel to!!
********************************************************************************
站了很久,总算在脑海里想到大概的设计,在店里终于找到一个可以像是可以“代表”圣诞设计的盖章,选这个的其中一个原因是因为我本人很喜欢玻璃雪花球,去到哪里旅行都会买一个回来做纪念!

After stamp chop now is the ink pad!! Problem now is which color should I pick?? I a single solid color that I've to concern on what color paper I should use!! Finally I chose black color, safe for any color background (of coz black color paper is not included, don't be silly!!)
********************************************************************************
有了盖章,当然要选个颜色啊,但是颜色是要怎样选啊??   选单一色就会有点被框框住了,所以最后选了最传统的黑色,即使过后要上色还是什么是最安全的,无需格外担心的!

Here's the results, the one the left is the first stamp so it might look a bit blur and not so clear!!
********************************************************************************
成品就是这样啦!!   左边的是第一个盖的,所以有点模糊!

Surprisingly I couldn't remember when I did I put this in my basket, only realized it when I got home!!
********************************************************************************
这个很离奇,我明明只是选黑色的颜色罢了,回到家的时候才发觉我是何时买了这个,把它放进了我的篮子都不知道。。。真的有够大意!

✈14
So let's check it out what's it!! This's ink pad for watermark ink and it was my first time see about it!
********************************************************************************
这是一个水印式的盖章,算我孤陋寡闻,我还是第一次看到这样的颜色的盖章,原来水印是有这样的印章的!

✈15
As it's a "watermark" ink, so wasn't easy to take a picture of it, so must achieved the picture and shooting as certain angle!!
********************************************************************************
由于是水印,还真的很难拍到照片,要这样才斜斜拍才可以拍到!!   

✈16
Put on some brightness adjustment to the picture, so now you can see clearly the difference of them!!
********************************************************************************
来总对比一下,照片的颜色是必须调整一下,才可以看到全部!

✈17
Black and White!! Which one you like the most???
********************************************************************************
尝试找来黑白色的卡纸来配对,你比较喜欢哪个一呢???   

✈18
Personally I like the one on the right more, because it looks like snow globe in the dark sky!! But since everyone choose the one on the left, so I pick this!!
********************************************************************************
其实我比较喜欢右边的,看起来像黑夜,雪球印章看起来就像白色!!   但是顺从大众的意向,所以我选了作品白色!
  
✈19
Done!! Done!! Done!!
Must give a really big thanks to my best friend who helps me to finish them!! She cuts the paper then I do the stamp chop......(PS: Is not easy to work with me, as I'm a super perfectionist on certain thing, she was kept on nagging that "You're asking people to help but at the same time you complain a lot!")
********************************************************************************
嗒!嗒!嗒!
多谢我好友陈美玲的帮我割纸卡,然后我盖章!!   真的要多谢她,因为帮我制作卡片的时候是不可以马虎的,以我极高要求,她还要一直念说“要我帮你做,还要要求多多,多多意见!”
