Rubies Begins Belt Mod Tutorial


So what do you get when you merge the rubies belt:

With the kids dress up utility belt:

Wait for it....wait for it....


You get a custom begins belt with 2 detacthable functional metal pouches:

I know...i still have to paint the belt to make it one color....anyway, I brought in my begins belt to work to show my coworker and i got bored so i decided to create a mod for the begins belt when i saw that the kids toy belt had detachable pouches and wondered if i could add them to my belt and make them functional somehow....i'll post a REALLY EASY tutorial tonight when i get home from work with pix if anybody wants to do it too....

Re: RUBIES BEGINS BELT MOD....


Okay...here's the tutorial with pix...
1. First off, of course you need the Rubies belt and the Kids DresS Up belt that you can find at Target or TRU
Rubies belt

Target / TRU Dress up belt
Image

2. As you can see on the Kids Dress up belt, the "metal" pouches are detachable. There are a total of 2 pouches on the Kids Belt....unfortunately, they made one slightly smaller than the other for some weird reason...but no biggie...Go ahead a leave off the pouches and the GPS/phone device so that you can see all the pegs on the belt with the screws.

3. Go ahead an unsrew all 3 pegs from the belt. You'll end up with the peg with the screw in it and the backing that holds the screw in place (the backing isn't really necessary, just for reinforcement).
Image

4. Go ahead and take 3 links from the Rubies belt (i'm sure all of us have extra links from the extra belts we ordered). For each one, you will make a small hole big enough for the screw. I used the point of an exacto knife and just twisted until the hole was big enough and then attached the pegs with the screws to the holes you just made...again, you dont have to use the backing....its up to you

5. Now go ahead and reattach the link back to the Rubies belt any place that you like and clip on the pouches / GPS device
Image
Image

6. Paint it with the Krylon Gilded Brass Spray paint like everyone is suggesting in other threads...(i still have to do this step too)

7. Presto chango, you know have a Begins Belt with two functional pouches
Image

THE END
