Made My First Wooden Amplifier with JanSport Campus Ambassadors

Hello, Good Peeps! I am so glad to be finally back to blogging since I was caught up with so many things lately. It had been a month I did not post something here on my blog and I thought I had to wipe the dust off. But here I am, with my very first wooden amplifier where I almost cut my finger yet so worth to try! I mean not to try cutting your finger.

First thing’s first, let’s meet these JanSport Campus Ambassadors Indonesia 2017. I am really happy to be in the same circle with these cool peeps. There are only six of us but we are really excited to see how far JanSport activities will take us next!

So, the first activity of JSCA is creating our own wooden amplifier which took place in ONX Creative Studio. We were assisted with the people there and you have no idea how fun it was! This wooden amplifier will allow you to use your smartphone as a brand new speaker without cords or batteries needed. Awesome, isn’t it?

It could take around 6 hours to make the wooden amplifier because there were a few stages to take which consisted of measuring the woods into 5 wood pieces and 1 acrylic for the cover; cutting the woods; sanding the wood with sandpaper; glueing the pieces into a wooden amplifier; fitting all in; and the fun part is coloring.

Honestly it took me around 30 minutes to measure the wood pieces somehow. And when it came to the wood cutting, I almost shattered the wood, my fingers, and the machine at the same I suppose. The power was too high and I barely got it stabilized until I had to ruin my wood pieces. Amateur, pardon!

Long short story, I had to sand the wood and arrange all the pieces into one wooden amplifier with glue and put on a metal oil funnel which function to enhance the sound. Frankly I got trouble while arranging the pieces because there was one piece that could not fit in and I had to keep on sanding it over and over again. It happened because my wood cutting skill was completely lousy. To be honest, haha! After that, we could color up the wood pieces and the metal oil funnel. But don’t forget to let it dry first after glueing them into one piece.

Voila! Our own wooden amplifier is done! No batteries and cords needed, your original speaker is ready to use. I had so much fun in creating this wooden amplifier though it took me hours to finish it since I was the second from the last who made it. However, you guys can give it a try to make your own wooden amplifier at home. All you need is just woods, tools to cut the woods which I think you can use saw, glues, and paint to color up your amplifier. Sounds easy?

Since it is going to the end of the year, get 50% off for a JanSport bag through this link and get ready to mingle! So, that’s how my very first of December went by. Having new friends with incredible experience. Now tell me yours! How do you usually spend your weekend? Share your thoughts below and wish you have a great weekend! 🙂

How To Make Scrapbook With Recycled Paper

As I’ve promised on 3 Fun Things I Do When I’m Bored ‘s post that I would post how I did my scrapbook with recycled paper where you don’t need to buy new papers and stuff, you only need old newspapers which are left out in your garage.

At first I didn’t mean to make a scrapbook at all, I even had no idea and didn’t know why that I actually made it eventually. I got a task from my Art teacher at school to make a recycled paper. I was really not into it at first because it wasn’t my thing at all (and still not, I guess because I’m a consumptive person eh?). But however I had to finish this work with my group.

I’m not gonna explain how to make recycled paper, because the needed stuff seems complicated and I’m pretty sure, 75% of people would rather buy recycled papers at Scrapbook Store instead of making it themselves. And here are things you need to make your own fancy scrapbook :

needed stuff

  • Notebook
  • Recycled Paper
  • Glue (I used glue for wood because it sticks better than paper glue)
  • Scissor
  • Random Buttons
  • Any other stuff you may think it’s cute for your scrapbook

HOW TO :

  1. Take the hard cover off of the book. It’s either the front or the back page.

  2. Glue the hard cover with recycled paper neatly.

    cr2

  3. Pierce the covered hard cover holes with scissor/knife or anything you think it’s sharp to use.

  4. And your current scrapbook looks like mine so far

  5. Now, it’s time to spice up your masterpiece. I made “Okay? Okay” sign for my scrapbook’s back page. And I used ice cream sticks for short quotes, letters from magazine, buttons and lace that I got from my button’s case as bonus. Use your creativity to make the most fancy scrapbook evah!

    These are things I need for front cover,

    And viola, this is how my front page looks like,

  6. The scrapbook is done, BUT it still doesn’t look like a scrapbook to me. Let’s make a cover for it. Use duplex carton for its cover, adjust the size with your own scrapbook.

  7. After that, cover the duplex carton with another carton or paper. It’s for the inside of scrapbook cover, so it won’t look messy. If you’ve finished covering the duplex carton, reverse the other side of duplex carton and cover it with recycled paper. If you’re running out of recycled paper, you can use carton/paper/fabric/etc.

  8. Back to your notebook, twine the notebook ring from the top to the bottom of notebook with scrapbook rope (I don’t know what it is called exactly but I found this rope in Scrapbook Store).

    Do not tie the rope, take the scrapbook cover you’ve pierced, put the rope in the hole and twine the scrapbook cover like you did to your notebook.

  9. Voila! It’s done! You can do anything you want with your scrapbook cover. And this is how my scrapbook looks like,

     So, that was how I made my scrapbook and I hope you’re inspired to do the same. It’s really fun to do. Take some pictures, print ’em out and stick ’em on your scrapbook. Have a great weekend! 🙂
