Raba-Suto (Rubber Cell-Phone Strap) Decoration Lecture! Let’s Make Otaku Decoration without Ita-Bag Base!!
Mafuyu(^q^)/ : Hello guuuuuys~!! What’s up, my friends? I’m Goods Republic’s Mafuyu, full of energies today too! Last week, I featured some Ita-Pouches, which were a little smaller than the Ita-Bags!
Make an Ita-Pouch : Easier and Fewer Goods than the Ita-Bag
Mafuyu(^q^)/：But I just realized something important...!!
What if anybody didn’t have any Bases of Ita-Pouch or Ita-Bag? What if anybody didn’t have enough goods? How can those people decorate items of their favorite characters...?
Mafuyu(^q^)/：I bet you are one of them... no? Aren’t there any techniques in which we can decorate items with fewer goods?! Today’s article is exactly for you!!
Raba-Suto Decoration Lecture! Let’s Make Otaku Decoration Easily without Ita-Bag Base!!
Mafuyu(^q^)/：Yep! Today’s article is about how to decorate smaller goods... “rubber cell-phone straps”, which are even smaller than the Ita-Pouches!
Ruba-Suto Decoration? It’s not a big deal... Did you think so?
Nope! It’ll be such cute and unique goods in the world, depending on your own ideas!
Mafuyu(^q^)/：First, I’ll show you this one! What is the item in Japan, which protects the Raba-Suto...? This’s getting hot, isn’t it?
What’s great about this is that we can easily pierce the string through it or choose any sizes depending on the Raba-Suto! It will never get dirty with these covers. And this is my recommendation for the beginners!
You might be able to get the covers with picture patterns like these as well!
Mafuyu(^q^)/：I’ll share how to make these Ruba-Suto Covers, using this item with you guys!
Mafuyu(^q^)/：The item is... THIS!!
Mafuyu(^q^)/：I actually don’t know how this item is officially called, though... A vinyl bag...? I’ve heard that we officially call it an OPP Bag in Japan.
Mafuyu(^q^)/：Now, let me explain how to make the cover...
1. Cut the OPP Bag so it will become square.
2. Cut the tip of the bag and make a hole to pierce the strap.
3. Put the same-size paper (a little hard one) into the bag.
4. Put the Raba-Suto into the bag and pierce the string into the hole.
5. Put the masking tape on all sides.
Mafuyu(^q^)/：Done!!! Don’t forget to decorate something on the back as well!
I recommend that you should use a special paper (No.3) and a masking tape (No.5) with some patterns so they will be cuter!!!
Mafuyu(^q^)/：If you don’t like to do a lot of works... just put a ribbon like this, to make it much cuter!!
(You can put a masking tape instead of the paper as the picture below as well! Great idea!)
Mafuyu(^q^)/：What’s more? You can put the Raba-Suto into a card case (transparent, a little soft and has a hole for the strap on the top) and fix the surroundings with something like a hair iron sealer. Then cut each side out with scissors! How about this idea? This will definitely become strong, so give it a try!
Mafuyu(^q^)/：You can make anything cute depending on your ideas! So you guys! Make your original one! Any goods can be cute as long as you have some ideas and love!
Alright guys, I’ll see you all at the next article! Ciao~!!
