Questions concept

Being a blogger, I can sometimes find it hard to come up with ideas. So to make blogging easier, every month, I will be posting 10 random questions, so I have more time to think of ideas, and so my readers can get to know me better.

1. What is your favourite Yankee Candle Scent?

– Bahama Breeze or Mango Peach Salsa

2. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?

– Los Angeles, because the weather is gorgeous most of the time, and the majority of my favourite YouTubers live there.

3. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

– Jacket Potato with Salad, because you can change the toppings, and I just love jackets and salad in general anyway.

4. If you had a TARDIS, which time period would you visit?

I was browsing on my new favourite website Pinterest, and came across “sharpie mugs“. I instantly fell in love, and wanted to try it out myself. I however used a plate instead of a mug, for no particular reason other than the fact that I had no plain white mugs. I love Disney, so I thought it would be nice to incorporate one of my favourite Disney quotes too. I had a lot of fun making it, and I’m sure you would too!

YOU WILL NEED:

(click the picture to enlarge)

1. CHOOSE A QUOTE/PICTURE FOR YOUR PLATE

il_570xN.375304615_5429

It took me a while to find the perfect quote, so don’t worry if you can’t find one for a while.

2. TYPE YOUR QUOTE INTO A WORD DOCUMENT, PRINT AND CUT TO SIZE

IMG_1201

Also, make sure the font size isn’t too big when you’re typing.

3. TRACE THE WRITING ON TO THE BACK OF THE PAPER

IMG_1202

If you don’t do this, it will show up backwards.

4. TAPE THE PAPER TO THE PLATE, AND TRANSFER THE WRITING

IMG_1204

Make sure you press really hard with the pencil so it transfers properly.

5. REMOVE PAPER

IMG_1205

The pencil should have transferred enough for you to be able to see it.

6. TRACE THE PENCIL WITH SHARPIE

IMG_1207

This step is probably the hardest, but take your time and you should be fine. If you make a mistake, carefully wipe it away with a wet tissue paper.

7. BAKE FOR 30 MINUTES AT 175°C/350°F

IMG_1213

Make sure you preheat the oven first, or it won’t bake properly.

8. ENJOY YOUR PLATE!

IMG_1208

Remember, if you don’t think it’s turned out perfectly, don’t worry, practice makes perfect!

9. AFTERCARE

IMG_1215

After your plate is finished, I would not recommend washing it with a dishwasher. Also, when you’re washing your plate, do not scrub too hard, as you may cause the sharpie to erode.
