if you have a second copy of something or an old book you know you’ll never flip through again, this neat little Photo Album DIY from Photojojo is worth putting on your crafts to-do list.
The basic idea is to ‘upcycle’ the book into a photo album by cutting out windows in select pages, taping those pages to the next page on three sides using double-sided tape, and then sliding your prints of choice into the newly-created slots.

DIY - WATERMELON SHORTS
Because who doesn’t love watermelon, specially on shorts! I had an absolute blast putting this tutorial together. These shorts are perfect for any music festival, because as we all know, anything goes at these events. I found a dope pair of watermelon shorts on NastyGal.com, but I figured I would just make my own for a fraction of the price. $85 vs. $15 bucks, I’ll take the DIY version any day.
- High waisted shorts
- Green Fabric Paint
- Black Fabric Paint
- White Fabric Paint
- Fuchsia Rit Fabric Dye
- Paint Brushes
1) Begin by prepping your bucket with hot water over a sink or outdoor surface.
2) Follow the instructions on the Rit fabric dye package label and dye your shorts accordingly.
3) After your shorts have been dyed, washed, and dried, you can begin by painting the green bottom trim of your shorts. I would begin by finishing the front of your shorts, allow to dry, then move onto the back.
4) Now move onto your black fabric paint and begin to paint round watermelon seeds throughout your shorts. Allow to dry.
5) Once your green trim and black seeds are dry, finish off by painting the top of the trim with your white fabric paint. Allow to dry, and you’re set!

PS. Please allow the shorts 72 hours to dry before putting them through the wash.
PSS. You can apply this tutorial and make strawberry shorts instead too! Just substitute the fuchsia dye with red fabric dye.
