DIY Collar Tips

So I'm back! I went to Geneva for my birthday, it was lovely there and the weather was so warm!
I'm 18 now !!! 
For my birthday I got a Nikon D3100 camera and a graphics tablet :)
Now I have some really disappointing news, so I used my new camera to photograph todays outfit and after a couple of shots the screen on the camera said 'Error: Press shutter release  button again' I did this but unfortunately the error message wouldn't go away and I couldn't take anymore photo. :(
But I've packaged it back up and we're going to send it back to Amazon and hopefully get a replacement... but if anyone knows I can fix this I'd be SO grateful! 

UPDATE: A replacement got sent out and I received it today :) ahhhh, so happy!

But anyways, back onto the main post.
Here is my outfit featuring my new DIY collar tips.
I plan to make more of this, as this one was just a tester to see if I could actually do it! Thats why in the upclose photos they don't look too great!
Oh, and I bought the supplies off Ebay i think it all came to about £5 for everything I needed. And then i just borrowed my dads tools :p

I'm wearing:
Blouse bought off Ebay
Corduroy shorts from American Apparel
Brogues bought off Ebay 
Scarf bought from MozzyPop


I've had my eye on buying some collar tips from ASOS for ages now. But when I saw's post showing a diy tutorial I just had to do it!


my new (broken) camera :(

Probs for the collar tips, I think they are amazing! So happy you got a replacement, nothing more annoying than getting faulty stuff (just got a lens with a manufacturing defect... grrr)!
