Srry about no DIY yesterday

So to make up for it and to help the fact that im hungry RAINBOW CUPCAKES!!!

           Ite err i mean Ingredients
  •  One box of 18.25 oz white or yellow cake mix
  • 4 eggs 
  • 1 cup of buttermilk
  • Vegetable oil (just get the amount from the box)
  • Food coloring
  • Cupcake tin 
  • Frosting
  • Cupcake cups
  • Sprinkles or whatever u want on the cupcake

       Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit. Then mix all the ingredients in a bowl, either stir by hand or mix with a mixer on low for 30 secs then mix on high for 2 mins. After done mixing, separate the batter into different bowls.                      
Step 2                 
Read the food coloring and mix it into the batter accordingly. Make sure there are no lumps.

 Step 3
Put the cup cake papers in the cup cake tin.  I used foil papers so that you couldn't see the layers of color until you opened it up!Start with the color you want at the bottom of the cupcake, in my case, that was purple.  Continue layering up until you get to the color you want on top.  Make sure not to fill the cup cake papers over two thirds full, otherwise, the tops of the cupcakes will overflow and stick to the baking tin. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit  for 15 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.  Take them out of the oven and let them cool before moving on to the next step.

Step 4.
Decorate the cupcakes with icing and sprinkles once there cool.

Step 5
Eat the cupcakes and amaze ur friends!!!

Todays DIY (Seat belt, belt)

Todays DIY is about making your own belt out of what else, a seat belt.

Awww YEAH!!

Ok, you might not need the hammer.   

  • Seat Belt (Got mine at a salvage yard.)
  • Scissors
  • A lighter
  • And a way to sew it back together (either by hand or machine)

Step 1
Make sure that the belt will fit into your belt loops. Trim the end of your belt ,(after you have measured to fit to your size), and then melt the ends with the lighter so that the they dont fray.
Caution with the flame!
Step 2
Stitch it together and make sure you sized correctly, 
Step 3
This is more of a extra step in case the belt doesnt fit into the seat belt loops. In my case the metal tab didn't fit so i had to sand it down with a jewelers saw.

Step 4
Show it off!!
Feeling good in the summertime!

First DIYer ever.

Time for today, and the first ever DIY or (Do it yourself) Project.

The invisible Bookshelf.
1.Decent sized book thick enough for a L Bracket. (Note get a book you really don't mind ruining)
2. L Bracket
3.Small wood screws and large wood screws.
5. A Pen
6. Tape measure or Ruler
7. Carpet Knive
8. Books for that creepy floating bookshelf look
9. Power drill (unless ur popeye)                              

                                                                                                                                 Step 1.
Measure the middle point, make a mark and set down a bracket, draw and outline and measure again. Make a hole deep enough that the bracket will be flushed. Do this to the back or bottom of the book.
                                                                      Step 2
                                      Use your knife again to cut a notch for the bracket.
                                                                                                                                  Step 3
 Use the drill to secure the L bracket to the book. Make sure you put pressure so that the screws dont rise up.                     

                                                                                                                  Step 4
                                                  Glue the books cover to the inside of the book. Apply ALLOTTTT of pressure to the book. Leave it under something heavy, (Like MOAR books) overnight.
Step 5
Attach to a wall. Make sure to find a stud.
