Butterflies

 Dear Friends

A very good afternoon. 

Today I made two curtain fold cards

All the instructions were given by the host of Butterfly Challenge Dear Valerie Anne. I just followed her instructions. Thank You dear lady

I took a piece of 11.5*4 inch piece of butterfly patterned paper. on the left and right hand corner mark 1 inch. on the left hand side it should be from the bottom and right hand side it should be from the top. Join the two marks.  Then score at 1,2.5,3.25,4.75,5.75,7.25,8,9.5 and 10.25. Then cut along the line you drew. After than mountain fold and valley fold alternatively. turn to the other side and secure with double sided tape. Then i took a piece of pink color cardstock measuring 4*5 and attached the curtain fold patterned paper and decorated to my hearts content. A black gel pen was used to draw the tentacles of the butterflies. 

On one card i attached a pink colour butterfly and a baby butterfly and a flower and attached carrot orange gemstones. 

On  the other card I used a pink colour plastic butterfly with a glue dot and tied a bow using carrot orange jute thread. I also attached a carrot colored gem stone to hide the glue dot which was used to fix the bow.

I stamped the sentiments Happy Birthday and Congratulations to finish off the cards

Ribbon Holder

 Dear Friends

A very good morning.


My little ribbon collection was messy as it was in abox. So I decided to make a ribbon holder. I found a cardboard box and painted it blue to suit my colors of pink and blue. I rolled a piece of cardboard and made a knob too.  I found another piece of cardboard and folded it to fit my cardboard box. Then i cut two pieces of cardboard and pasted to the two sides. Rolled a piece of paper like a dowel and I painted everything blue. This is my completed ribbon holder. The box under the dowel too holds pieces of ribbon.

As I told before I have made a resolution to make all the containers I need using waste materials as boxes are too expensive and i can use that money buy some crafty goods.

Pen Holder

 Dear Friends

A very good morning to you.


 I had my pens, scissors, glue in different holders and it was taking some space. So I decided to make one holder that can fit all my supplies. I took a box and sealed one side and from the other side i cut it at a slant. Then I pasted a gift wrapping paper from a gift I had given my husband in 2010 or earlier. One of my holders hold colored gel pens, a long ruler.paint brushes  and my old pair of scissors.That holder was put at the back and i divided it so that my water spray bottle can go to the other side. The container that holds my most often used pens, scissors etc went to the small container which is a cardboard box which held an eaudeclogne bottle. The other side holds my small glue bottles. I made a small plate from cardboard and adhered to the front to hold erasers, safety pin [which i use as a pokey tool] as well as clips. I cut two yoghurt cups adhered wrapping paper and attached to the side. One holds rubber bands and the other holds binder clips. The best thing is I can take it anywhere if I want. Recently i went shopping and decided that all the boxes that i need will be made by me unless somebody gifts them to me as boxes are so expensive and sometimes I cannot get what i need.

Masculine birthday Card

 Dear Friends

A very good afternoon.

I had to make masculine Birthday cards for a dear friend of mine






I took a piece of A4 paper measuring 4 by 5 1/2 inches and made a shirt. Then i took a 2 by 2 inch square and folded that into a tie. I attached a blue color brad as a tie pin. Then I attached that to a card base. Then I attached a sentiment. The other cards are simple Birthday cards to which i attached a blue color embelishment. These are my simple masculine Birthday cards. Hope you like them.

Chaos










 Chaos

Good Morning dear friends

You must be wondering why I named the post as Chaos. I wanted to make some masculine cards. I used a black ink to stamp the sentiment and as it was light i colored with a marker and five minutes down the line the ink was in two spots of the card. I went to die cut a sentimnet and the measurement was wrong and i had to discard the card and mind you i didnnt have any more cardstock of that colour . Lol. what i did was i cut the card stock in two and saved the good piece. The other one i turned it to the other side and die cut the same sentiment about four times. Since it was masculine card I made a shirt and Tie and put a tie pin too but because of the ink bobbos I had to redo it again. Have you experienced such days. I will never forget yesterday as this was the first time I experienced such chaos. At the end of it I made four masculine cards and i have ordered some stamps and dies to make more masculine cards.

Here are my Masculine cards
