I got the BC (which only about a year ago I realized stands for 'bacon and cheese', not British Columbia) burger!
After White Spot we went to the dollar store where I found a bunch of awesome stuff including blush, sparkly pom-poms, a hecka lot of sweethearts on sale, and earring backings. I took pictures of my purchases, but they turned out kind of crap so I decided to forgo posting them. I also went to Talize and picked up even more awesome stuff, I think I'll save that for another post though.
Anyway, the point of this post was to discuss burgers. I've been holding onto this burger eraser I bought from Daiso, you know those Japanese erasers that come in pieces that fit together and are usually in the shape of food? I've got about 8 different sushi erasers, western food is much harder to find, unless of course it's desserts, which are a plenty. The first time I bought these particular Japanese erasers (which I've found out are only made in two factories in Japan, so if they're not from the Japan then they're just cheap imitations, pfft) I found them at Toys 'R' Us for about $3 CAD. They're cheaper by a dollar at Daiso, but Daiso hasn't taken over North America like it has Asia already. Just wait, kids. Wow, I'm seriously getting side-tracked, point is I decided I wanted to use the burger eraser as jewellery, mostly I wanted to make a ring out of it, but I didn't feel like going to a craft shop and opted instead to just go to the dollar store where they only had earring backings. So I made a pin out of it for my jean vest. Easiest fucking tutorial in the world, but I felt like making one anyway!
What you'll need:
- a glue gun
- pin backing (or earring backing if you're lazy like me)
- burger eraser!
Step 1: add some glue, Step 2: add the backing, Step 3: wear! Am I going too fast for you?
Mostly I used this as an excuse to show off my new burger pin, it's pretty great isn't it?
Look at how sad my jean vest is though. I bought some Adam West Batman pins off Etsy a few weeks back, I'm hoping they'll get here soon. Also while I had the glue gun out I decided to make a glittery pom-pom pin as well, again I wanted to make a ring of it, I should really check around to see if I can find some cheap ring backings.

Please don't ask me what's going on with my hair, I don't know either.
