Crafts: bow belt fix

On Monday I went shopping with my cousin and found a super cute belt marked down to $5! It had an elastic band and a snap in the back, aka not adjustable. I could tell that it was several inches too big. Problem? Naw. I bought that shit anyway.

As you can see, it hangs a little low…

Man, ever since I got an iPhone, taking pictures has gotten so much easier! But the quality is obviously not as good as my digital camera. I’m going to vote it a toss up because this project took 15 minutes with picture taking, and you just can’t beat that.
