Make Your Own Map Shoes

1. You'll need a pair of canvas shoes, a large map or atlas, Mod Podge, a paintbrush, and some newspaper (optional). 2. To keep the shape of your shoes, stuff them with newspaper. Brush some Mod Podge onto one of your shoes. Concentrate on small areas at a time (Mod Podge dries quickly). 3. Tear apart small pieces of your map and place it on the freshly glued area. Continuously add more Mod Podge on the shoe to glue and seal the map pieces. Repeat this step until both shoes are covered. 4. Let the Mod Podge dry for at least an hour, then your new shoes are ready to wear! Your shoes might be a little crunchy sounding for the first few wears.

DIY Glitter Shoes!
What you’ll need: -Any pair of flats, canvas shoes, or loafers -Mod Podge (available at craft stores) -Glitter (gold, silver, etc.) -Newspaper & a plate or bowl -Foam brushes or paint brushes -Clear coat spray paint (to make sure the glitter stays on!) First, you’ll want to stuff newspaper down into the shoe so that no glitter or glue gets inside! I removed the laces from my shoes also, just to make sure they didn’t get all gunked up. Pour some of the mod podge onto a plate or into a bowl. I used a paper plate because they are disposable and it was easier to use a flat surface to get a thin coating of the mix. Next, you’ll want to pour some glitter into the mod podge. You’ll want about half as much glitter as there is mod podge, because you don’t want the mix to be too thick. Mix the glitter and mod podge together using one of your foam brushes. Then get ready to paint your shoes! Paint a thin coat of the mix onto the shoe. Make sure that it is smooth and not too chunky because it will dry that way! I didn’t want to paint the whole shoe, so I only painted the front and the back, leaving the middle white. Once you have the mod podge mix on the shoe, you’ll want to pour a SMALL amount of glitter onto the spots you just painted. This just gives the shoe a little extra glitter, and makes sure that there are no white spots. When you’re finished adding the glitter to the shoes, you’ll want to clean off any extra glitter that is on the shoe because you don’t want it to be stuck there when you spray the clear coat. I used a damp paper towel to clean off the edges and the bottom. Last but not least, spray your shoes with a clear coat spray paint. This makes sure that the glitter stays shiny and does not fall off the shoes. Make sure to read the directions on the can and do not get it on your skin or in your eyes. When this is done, you’ll want the shoes to sit and dry overnight to make sure that they are ready to wear.
Buy Products From eBay in Pakistan
Online shopping is in trends since quite a while now. Everybody loves to shop their favorite products just by tapping a few keys on their keyboard while coming on their couches or beds. There are a number of business companies in the dotcom domain that provide platform for such buyers as well as sellers and one of those companies is Ebay. The online merchants use Ebay as a sales channel to buy and sell their products as it operates in many countries. It is one of the most popular auction sites where anything can be sold; from comic books to DVDs, from dinkies to antique cars. Ebay in Pakistan The sellers on Ebay opt for the countries where they are going to ship, so it’s totally up to them whether they choose to sell in Pakistan or not. Once the sellers choose to sell their specific product in Pakistan, ordering or bidding for a product from Ebay is easy then. Buying from Ebay is not a problem for the people of Pakistan, the main problem is paying for those products because Paypal doesn’t operate in Pakistan. Sellers often don’t choose Pakistan because unavailability of Paypal. Payment methods for Ebay in Pakistan Payment through credit or debit card is mostly a headache because for that you need most of the buyer’s/seller’s basic information. Not all people are willing to give out their personal information to potential customers. As far as Paypal is concerned, it is not available in Pakistan as well. This buying and selling on Ebay problem is solved my many local e-commerce websites. You can easily surf through these websites, pick whatever product you want and order it. The rest is left to the third party which is behind these e-commerce websites. They’ll make sure about the payment as well as the shipment of the product to Pakistan. Another good news for the people in Pakistan who want to buy from Ebay is that many of the banks in Pakistan are offering prepaid or virtual credit cards, the number of these banks is likely to increase with time. These cards can be used to carry out direct payments to the Ebay portal. Moreover, Visa Prepaid options are also available. Points to note while buying from Ebay in Pakistan Remember to use the global version of Ebay which automatically detects your location and localizes the site to Pakistani version. In this way, the shipping costs and product costs will be automatically converted to the Pakistani currency making it convenient for you to shop. You can further narrow down the searches to Asia only. Before going through the categories, check if the seller you’re willing to buy from ships internationally or domestically. If he doesn’t ship to Pakistan, try another seller who does. There are also plenty of Pakistani sellers who are also worth trying. Before going for a third party website considers a seller who ships to Pakistan, this will save you a lot of fatigue. However, most of the e-commerce websites are feasible and you should not be reluctant while choosing a reliable website. Ebay products in Paksitan This post orgionaly featured at OnePoint Blog

DIY Sponge-Dyed Ombre Sneakers
You'll need: • Gloves • Syringe (1 per color) — Optional but recommended :) • Rubber Cement — Optional • Masking Tape — If you don’t have rubber cement • Sponge • Popsicle sticks for mixing the dye • Fabric Dye (Liquid or Powder) • Paintbrush (Make sure it’s clean — I suggest using a new brush; just buy the cheapest one) • Plastic Cups for mixing dye • Hot water • Newspaper or anything to cover your work area • Wear clothes you don’t mind having fabric dye spilled or splattered on Step 1: Bring out your sneakers :D (old or new) Step 2: Cover all the rubber side strips with Masking tape or Rubber Cement to block out the dye from adhering to the rubber. You can remove it afterwards or wait for it to wear off We won’t be dipping the entire shoe in the dye mixture so there’s no need to cover the soles. Step 3: Now you have to wet/soak your sneakers (canvas part only) with HOT water. You can do so by using a paintbrush first then soaking it more with a sponge. Step 4: Make your dye mixture Step 5: Once you’re done mixing your dye mixture (darkest) ~ take out your atomizer and syringe (optional). I think the smaller atomizers will work best for sneakers as it won’t cover a large surface area. For bigger materials such as shirts, you can use the bigger atomizers (Yes, the one you use when ironing clothes) Step 6: Use your sponge to wet your sneakers again :) Make sure to cover the whole area~! Spray the back part of your shoe with the dye bath. Careful not to over-spray :) You can always spray again :D Step 7 : Now take your brush, dip it in your hot water and carefully blend out your dye (Colored to white areas of your shoe). Yes, we are now creating the ‘ombre effect’. Use more water as you get nearer the middle part of your shoe or wherever you want the ombre to end (white). Afterwards, clean your brush and dip it again in water (clean hot water). Now carefully brush water starting from the WHITE part of your shoe to the lightest ombre — this is to remove or make any hard lines more subtle. Repeat steps until you’re satisfied with your ombre. If you’re using only one color, you can stop here and let your sneaks dry :) Step 8: If you’re planning to have 2 or more colors, simply repeat steps 4 - 7.
DIY Missoni Chevron Shoes
Step 1: Gather supplies. One pair of white canvas sneakers Ruler Manila file folder or other stiff paper Pencil Scissors Fabric markers in various colors (ones with both a thick and thin tip are best) Step 2: Using the ruler, draw a straight line near the edge of the manila file folder. Step 3: Draw a second line a half-inch down from the first one. Use the ruler to make tick marks at every half-inch interval on both lines. Step 4: Next, create a zig-zag pattern inside the two parallel lines by connecting every other tic. For example, start at the bottom left-hand corner of the lower line, and connect to the second tic mark on the upper line. Connect the second tic-mark on the upper line to the third tic mark on the lower line, and so on. Step 5: Now that you've just created all of those triangles, cut away the lower row of them (sorry!). You should be left with what looks like a row of teeth at the bottom of the folder. Feel free to use this template to create a shark or bear costume for Halloween. Step 6: Okay, now take out your plain canvas shoes and remove the laces—you don't want to color over them, nor do you want to try to color around them. Step 7: Position the template onto the toe of the sneaker. You'll be working your way from the front to the back of the shoe. Position the template wherever you like it best, but we felt it was easiest to keep things lined up by having the point of one triangle in the center of the shoe. Step 8: Move the template back and trace another row of triangles, making sure all of the points more or less match up with the previous rows. To get a true Missoni look, vary the spacing of the template—there's no right and wrong with this, so feel free to have lots of thin rows and then one giant row, followed by a medium and small row, and so on. Step 9: Okay, now it's time for the fun part! Grab your fabric markers and start coloring in the rows, making sure that each row is a different color. The colors don't have to be spaced evenly or in any sort of pattern (but go for it if you want!), so feel free to switch it up as much as you'd like. If your markers have differently sized tips, use the thin edge to outline the rows, and the thick to fill them in. Step 10: To make your kicks look extra-polished, make sure you color the inside rim of the sneaker! You've come all this way, so don't skimp out on this step. Step 11: Now, it's time to color the tongue of the sneaker. This part can be a little awkward since it's hard to get a good angle, but don't worry, since you only see a little bit of the tongue, you don't have to be too accurate. Just do your best and color the parts you can see, trying to match the colors and patterns from either side of the shoe. Step 12: All that's left to do now is lace up the sneakers and take them for a test drive! Your friends are going to be so enamored with your DIY skills, that they're going to try to get you to make them a pair. Beware!
