13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bohemian Scarf Vest with tutorial *image explosion* on: December 12, 2013 02:55:51 AM

Yo peeps!!!  Since our faculty annual grand meeting will be held this weekend, with the theme of Bohemian style,  I'm kinda blurred out because I'm not a Boho chick and it's very rare in our area to wear Bohemian so does wearing Gothic...

Thank God, there is a carnival held in campus, so I did some haul hunt to create something Bohemian under RM20 (approx. USD 5)

So, I got the widest scarf that I can find and here's the tutorial!!


1) Widest scarf will create a long vest-dress
2) Medium scarf creates normal length vest
3) Short/small rectangular scarf creates crop vest


1) Lay the scarf wrong side up

2) Tie a knot at the top corner of the scarf (left and right top corner).  Each length of the knot have to be the same like in the photo above.

3) When you're done with the knots, fold the scarf in half (now the layout is right side up)

4) (While still folded in half) Find the middle of the scarf as accurate as you can, use a pin or anything to mark the middle section.  I used scissors to point out my middle part.

5) (Again while still folded) Tie a small knot at the top corner.  Similar to the photo above.

6) Ok now, take the first 2 knots you made earlier and overlap it as shown in the photo above.  Sew them together.

7) Here's the tricky part to explain.  After you sew the first 2 knots together, take the 3rd knot (the one made at the centre of the scarf) and place it under the sewn knots..  

Cool Once everything is sewn the knots will form an inverted "Y" shape.  I added buttons to make it Bohemian..

9) And you're done and ready to rock the Boho runway!

Drapey, loose, messy front effect

Lazy, effortless appearance at the back

P/s: pardon my bra-strap  Tongue ..hahaha

Boho much!

If any of my instructions is not clear, feel free to ask me in the comment box and I'll try to guide you guys until you can rock the Bohemian style  Grin Grin Grin Grin

Thanks for viewing<3

15  COOKING / Dessert / Non-baked easy fruit tart recipe on: December 07, 2013 10:10:29 PM

Hi guys!  I haven't been here for a very long long time since I'm busy with college and only got the chance uploaded my diy stuff on my blog..

So today I'm gonna share with you guys my very own recipe of non baked fruit tart...  I swear this is very simple and my most fav dessert so far...


The crust:
1) Marie biscuit crumbs
2) Strawberry oatmeal cookie crumbs
3) Brown sugar
4) Butter

I didn't have the exact measurement because different sizes of the pie tray need different amount of ingredient, so I suggest you guys to use 1:1 ratio for the mixture of the crumbs,

for example;

1 cup of Marie crumbs : 1 cup of strawberry oatmeal crumbs

I prefer to use the brown sugar because it's flavor is better than the regular sugar so I suggest to add only 1/4 cup to the crumb mixture because we don't want the bottom to be sweet.  I've added the brown sugar only for flavoring purpose..

Wisk together the first 3 ingredients before adding up the butter

After getting tired of wisking (haha!), add the butter but not exceeding 1 stick of butter.  Since this is non bake tart, if you add too much butter the crust will be soggy and oily so I suggest to cut the butter into half first, mix together with the ingredients then add bit by bit until you get something like a cookie dough consistency...

After that, massage the dough for 5-10 minutes then put it in the pie tray and flatten it out according to the shape of the tray..

Pop it in the freezer to cool and harden...

The sauce:
1) 12-15 Strawberries
2) 1/4 cups of boiled water
3) Brown sugar

Ok for the strawberry sauce, I've used around 15 huge strawberries.  2/3 of them (plus the 1/4 cup of water) I've pureed in the food processor and the excess I've cut into small dice..

Heat up the pan and pour the strawberry puree and the diced strawberries together and let them boil.  I didn't measure the amount of brown sugar, just added them bit by bit to the sauce until you want the exact  sweetness..

Some strawberries are naturally sweet, so just add the amount of brown sugar that you need..

When the sauce is done, take of the crust from the freezer and pour in the sauce, spread them nicely, then put back in the freezer...

Garnish (optional):
1) Blueberries
2) 1-2 golden kiwis
3) whip cream

Like in the picture, I only spread the whipped cream in the middle because I don't want the tart to be so creamy..

The fruits used are optional..  I've used blueberries because they are not that sour and not too sweet and the kiwis are not that sweet either, so it will balance the taste of the strawberry sauce

aaaannnnddd you're done!!!

So hope you guys like this tutorial, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask Cheesy

Have a nice day and thanks for reading  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin
16  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / *UPDATED!!* Mismatched conspiracy of a folded photo album on: September 25, 2012 04:53:26 AM
Hey guys!!  Sorry I was busy yesterday and didnt get the chance to write anything in here, just uploaded the photos and off to next thing to do...

I was bored and watched some vids from youtube about folded scrapbooking photo album with my roomate.  So, we planned to do some arts and crafts later that evening..

So I shall say, BAAAMMM!!! here's my own folded photo album but I'm not gonna put any photos in it..Yepp imma lazy kid..

In the photo below, I have to colour my stamp with marker to make the gel more stiff and easier for the liquid base ink to stick to it because before this i had problems with the stamp where the ink doesnt fully spread out on it and making the design freaking ugly and like WTF???!!!

yep an ordinary butterfly knife turned into arts and craft knife..

And yeah! thanks for viewing.. Grin Grin Grin


these photos are in every pages of my other folded album... Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
