{Style Cents} The Most Stylish Way to Destroy A Credit Card

Credit Card Name Necklace{Photo Source: Clossette}

I saw this picture not too long ago from the blogger and self-proclaimed JeDIY master, Yuka Yoneda, of Clossette.com and my mind started to race.  That’s right, you are looking at a fabulously easy DIY name necklace repurposed from her old Macy’s card.  People cut up credit cards all the time to celebrate a BIG pay off, to keep themselves from going into further credit card debt, or because they were issued a new card.  No matter the reason, this is definitely a more stylish option than going all Edward Scissor Hands on your old card.  I still can’t fathom the thought of doing the “big chop” on my credit card once it hits a zero balance. It’s hard to shift that paradigm of having a credit card simply “in case of emergencies” but I am starting realize that is what my emergency fund is for.  I’m not sure if I am ready to cut my current card, but I have a card or two that had to be replaced because of a corporate breach.  If you are taking part in this DIY, remember to first demagnetize the card, shred the card after you have removed your “name plate”, and dispose on trash day.

Chic or Cheap?

{Fashion DIY} Fabulous Monogrammed Wristlet

I came across this picture sometime last week while browsing through Pinterest and I fell in love. It’s a Fashion DIY from the blog, Little Green Notebook. Based off the great job that Jenny did, I thought I would try it. August is a busy month for birthdays (including mine) and I thought something cute, simple, personalized, and most important, not terribly expensive, would be a great gift.  I thought to myself, buying something like this will cost you $$$, but DIYing it could be fun and worth and the savings.  So immediately, the Mr. and I drove to the closest H&M to see what wristlet I could find to try this project out on. Unfortunately, I did not see the same pattern as pictured below, but it made me remember this cute little Chevron patterned wristlet I saw on Esty (I’m totally going through a Chevron phase). 

Check out my inspiration picture!

Words cannot express just how much I LOVE this bracelet!!  Since it is a DIY, I wouldn’t even mind changing the color of the yarn to match certain outfits.  I will post pictures once I get my DIY on.

I think this DIY project came out great.  I have a pair of old black Steve Madden pumps, similar to the ones in the picture above that I would be okay if I messed up.  I guess the real question now is what color will I paint the toe?  Hot Pink?  Citron?  Purple?
