Anyways, back to my reference of 50 cent...I decided that P.I.M.P. shall stand for...(drumroll please)....
Which leads me to my latest craft that I again found rummaging through the many pins on Pinterest. Craft and Creativity posted a blog on how to "pimp" your earphones. They weren't actually going for a pimpin' look....they actually wanted a way to keep the Apple earphones from tangling up everyday when you stash them away in your purse, bag, pocket, drawer, etc.
|A picture from Craft and Creativity's Blog entry of the PIMPED earphones. Cute, right?|
What to buy:
- hama beads (I have to admit, I had a hard time deciding which color of beads to buy!)
- X-acto knife (I bought a pretty, pink one!)
- earphones (I had the standard Apple phones that accompany the iPhone!)
- cutting board (I found it useful, borderline necessary to protect my kitchen table from my pretty pink X-acto knife!)
|[Like I said, it was hard to pick my colors, so I went with the multi-colored pack!]|
You take your hama bead and slice it down the side with your x-acto knife. Next take your thumb nail and separate the two sides and then snap it on to your wire of your earphones.
It wasn't until the 10th bead that I successfully latched on the wire that I felt confident in my skill (not my pace)...therefore, I turned on the most recent Grey's Anatomy episode! So maybe my speed was due to paying attention to one of my favorite shows. :) However, I am happy with the end result. See my pics below! :)
After all the hard work..I reveal my P.I.M.P. earphones! I will be trying these out tomorrow as I drive to Akron to see my dear friend from OU! Call me, then you will know what I am talking on, lol!
|[This is just from the mouth piece up...this took about a half hour!]|
