Wall/Photo Hanging made of Yarn and Skewers

It was my friend's birthday and I wanted to gift her something made by me. I had her pics from our various trips outside. So thought of getting them printed and prepare a wall hanging. If you will look at the below pics carefully you will be able to make out how simple it is to prepare it. It requires only a yarn,4 skewers and few stuff to make them look pretty. I made the hanging double sided. One side are the coloured pics and other side black n white and sepia images. So total of 8 images. Here is how it looks.

Recycled/ upcycled / Altered Glass Bottles

I had few used olive oil glass bottles at home. So thought of trying my hands at painting them with my acrylic paints. Painting on bottle is much different then on canvas. Had to give them multiple coatings to give a finished look. Here is how it looks.

hope you like them.

Happy Birthday Dear Sister

Father's Day Card

I prepared this card for the Father's day. The theme I choose is about 'all that he loves' can make a similar card with all the things your Dad loves. I stuck a Shirt, a badminton racket, a car and a book. The shirt and book has little space to write a special message in it. You can check out how to make the origami shirt in the kids craft section of my blog.

Bon Voyage!

One of my friend is going to India . Thought of preparing a Bon Voyage card for her. Hope she has a safe journey. Here is the final product.

Card has been prepared with a white card stock. I have stamped leaf and daisy with my rubber stamp and stuck that piece with dual side tape. Another tag ' Bon Voyage' has been stuck directly on the stock. I have stuck two butterflies (pink for her and small blue for her baby boy ) with wings folded upwards to give some dimension. I wrapped it in a tissue paper with a red string. Here is how it looked.
