Midnight snacks for me :D

So, i am not really a cook. But when i am hungry i turn into 1. Praise the lord :D
I am a big fan of a snack these days and no cooking skill is required here :D
All you need to do is chop, chop, chop.

What you'll need?
1. A pack of salted biscuits
2. Butter or Cheese
3. Tomato
4. Green Chili
5. Onions
6. Black Salt
7. Pepper
8. Lemon

What to do?
1. Chop up those tomatoes, green chili and onion. Put them in a bowl.
2. Add Black salt and pepper to it. Mix, mix, mix :D
3.Squeeze out 3-4 drops of lemon juice. And mix it all.
4. Lay a layer of butter over your salted biscuits. One layer on each biscuit.
5. Spread your mix over it. 

And that's it :D
Easy right?

I had 7 biscuits left so for that i needed half a tomato, half an onion and 1 chili.

Here is how it looked:


Not bad for a beginner :P

No matter how it looked, it sure was yummy :D
BTW the layer of butter is below the vegetable mix.
Hope you liked it :)

Top recycled :D

You will love this DIY recycling, it is super cute and super easy. :D

What you will need?
1. A t-shirt or top.
2. A sharp scissor.
3. Matching thread.
4. Needle.
5. Safety pin.


So here are the steps:        
1. Cut along the red lines here. (Sorry for my poor drawing)

You will have to cut out the sleeves and
top of the t-shirt right below where the sleeves end as you can see.
And cut 2 strips (1" wide) from the lower portion on the t-shirt.
                                    


    2. This will show you how will it look after cutting.
            
You don't need the sleeves part and the upper part that had the neck hole.
    
    3. Make a tube on both the sides of the t-shirt by rolling it. And stitch it.


Sorry for bad stitching, i just wanted to show you how to do it.

    4. Now take the 2 strips from before and pull it, it will curl up. Now pass these 2 strings from both the               tubes from front and back sides.


You can use different coloured string.


     5. This is the final look :D Pretty cute, right? :D



I just tied those strings from back and front together.

And tadaa there you have it, a super cute and super easy DIY is before you :D
Hope you liked it, would like to hear from you :)
Thanks for reading :)

Plaster Of Paris's or POP's replacement :D

Well so i had a school project where i had to decorate a photo frame -_-' And i thought "seriously? How's that gonna help me in my life?" I was about to get a decorated photo frame from a shop (cheating i know :P)
but my aunt stopped me saying that she would do it.
Well, she was a person who was into arts and crafts, so i thought it was better than cheating :P Din't had to spend money on it was a bonus :P
Well long story short, i got an A :D and also i got to a trick that i use in many of my DIY's :D
So now that i think back, that project definitely helped me :D

I like sharing my stories :D I think its fun, maybe 'cause i enjoy writing :)

Look most of you are going to think its better to buy POP than to waste time on making a fake one, even i would've but you see its more efficient this way as here you are going to make the amount that you want and there will be minimum to no wastage.
As POP when left in open air gets hardened and cannot be used again. It has happened to me and thats why i use this method. Why waste my money when i just need a small amount of POP and the whole packet goes to waste?

Well so here's my DIY POP replacement.


Materials you are going to need :
1. Wheat flour that you can buy almost anywhere.
2. Water.
3. Fevicol.

Steps:
1. Take any amount of wheat flour you want. The amount usually depends on what you are going to make but start with a small amount, maybe 3 spoonfull if its a small thing, like a ping pong ball.

2. Mix some water in it. For 3 spoonfull flour, use half a cup (small) water. You get the idea.
    If its too runny, mix some more flour and if its too thick mix some more water.

3. Mix some glue, be generous here. Not too generous but generous.
    Like 1 spoonfull fevicol, if you think its not much add some more.
    I like to be on the safe side starting with less and then adding more. :D

And you are done with your own home-made POP that you can use to make almost anything :D Wasn't that tough right? :D
Thanks for reading :)

How to make a Fabric Bow? With or without stitching :D

Fabric Bow

Making a fabric bow is super easy :D 
You can make them either way, by using needles and by not using them. :P

1. Cut out a rectangle from your fabric, mine is from an old top of mine. Depending on the size of the rectangle your bow size will vary. Any size will do btw.



2. Now fold the rectangle from each side (bigger side) and hot glue it.


Hope you can see it ~.~

3. Now pinch it in the middle and hot glue it again from the opposite side or stitch it. It doesn't really matter.       Both will look the same. :)
    Or you can wrap the same color fabric over it or different color (whatever you'd prefer)

Here i first stitched it in the shape i wanted and then hot glued the same fabric over it.
Here are some other bows that i made:


  • The black one is the bow that i made in this tutorial.
  • The one next to it is a jeans material bow. I used a button to cover my stitches here. The button makes it even prettier :D
  • The mid one is what i made from a lace material. I had a black stone and it was perfect for it. This shape is actually for my hairband. Looks really pretty on it.
  • The 2 blue one's, i think i am gonna make ear-rings using them. What do you think? A ring? or an ear-ring? And they are made using t-shirt fabric.
  • I absolutely love this one's color. I think it looks perfect like this :D Its from an old top of mine.
So what do you guys think? It was easy. :D
Thanks for reading :)
