Chocolate Box & an Embellishment

Hi Crafters,

This is last day of year 2011. I wanna end this year by making some sweet crafting thing.
N what can be sweeter than a choclate box. So i made a choclate and will be gifting it to my friend (obviously filled with lots of chocolate ). Here is the box-
I made it using brown coloured handmade sheet . I will be adding cocoa rich chocolate to it thats y chose brown sheet and to make it more browny I added few stripes.
With the ribbon you can easily hold it.And to make chocolates easily visible from top i added a clear transparent sheet. And lastly added a velcro in front to make it more secure.

And here is the box with chocolates-
I m loving it !!! Hope you too !

And the last work of my year 2011 is this small embellishment.

For this I cutted a heart from red sheet of a wedding greeting card. Covered it with satin ribbon. I first sewed ribbon with needle & thread. In the centered of the heart i placed a readymade triplet of rose. Thats it. Linking it to Crafting Aberrigines.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Shoe Box Recycle

Hi peeps,

How u r doing? Just two more days to go for the year 2011 to end and towards the end of this year i am doing a bit of recycling and also making a tutorial on it.
So friends, I recycled a shoe box into a jewellery box. I took a spare shoe box-

Take the lid of the box and remove all staplers from it .Now cut left and right portions of lid into half circle (D shape) as shown-

Take a thin sheet of thermocol ,larger in size than lid, approx 2-3cm larger.
Paste it on lid of cardboard in dome shape and it will take time as this is the toughest part..

Now stick D shaped part of the lid to thermocol and to make it easier a cut a D shaped thermocol piece .Refer this pic, it will make it more clear-

So lid of the jewellery box is ready.
Take a spare piece of cloth and cover shoe box's lower part and above prepared lid with it.Cloth will adhere the lower part and lid tightly.

So this way you can recycle old/waste cloth pieces also.
Now decorate the box as you like.I used glitter paper for inner part and strips on outer part.

So tell me how is this jewellery box looking.

Hi there,

Year 2011 is in it's last few days. So its time to greet near & dear ones with new year wishes.
So, I am busy in making cards for this purpose. Just want to show you one finished card.
Here it is......

The black flower is completely handmade and i outlined it with 3d fabric liner.Also used 3d liner to create patterned strip. And in the center are the pielane glitter balls (got from priya's giveaway). Now i am in love with these glittter ballls.
Here a closer look-

I liked Pielane glitter balls so much, that i decided to create pattern with it only. The leaves are also handcut.

Candy Holder and A Card


Wow …what a Saturday it was …Every year 26th Nov. is a special day for me and our family. It’s my sweeeeet nephew’s birthday. Last few days went away in preparing for his birthday party. He turned 6 this year. Time runs away so fast my god. We had a great party yesterday. We enjoyed a lot.  Played games, dance and ate yummy food. Full on masti.
My nephew is fond of paper crafting specially cutting papers with my scissors and gluing them in his craft book. I always craft at night when he is sleeping . He asked me to make something for him. So I  made a candy holder for him and gifted him. He liked it soooo much.
I made a caterpillar in front of this candy holder from the circles cut from the patterned paper used in side walls. Entering this for ICR Challenge12  and Kavitha's Hanging Out Challenge

I also made a card for him. Everything in this card is hand cut except the two form gift stickers.I also wanted to submit my entry for Crafty JC Challenge, so i made card keeping in mind the color pallette #3. I never restricted myself with colors or any other thing while making my project. I just use what i think is best suited.
But really it was fun making this card. Entering this card for Craft JC Challenge Pallette#3.

Thanks crafters for visiting

Paper Jewellery from scraps

Hi All,

Today's post is about making use of pattern paper scraps. There are many ways to use paper scraps.
And one way that i think is to make jewellery out of them. It's little time comsuming but result is soooo amazing.
Let's see how i did it-
I took some leftover scraps.

You can also join different types of small paper scraps to get a long paper to make bead. Then cut it in the following shape-

Then with quilling tool I rolled them down till end. Glue the end.

This is how I made beads. They look so beautiful. I made approx. 10-15 beads.

Now you can arrange them into the shape you like. Add a jewellery thread or a thicker cord to it. And this is the final result-

And this will go for Priya's Challenge.

You can also combine multicoloured beads. That also looks nice-

 Hope u enjoyed this post.
Thanks For Visiting!!!
