Happy Holi!!

The festival of colors has arrived!! ūüôā The preparations for Holi are going on everywhere with full enthusiasm, energy and joy. For this year’s Holi decorations, I made these colorful flowers to be decorated in the New Jersey Satsang hall. These are very simple to make flowers made out of construction paper. I have also made a tutorial of making these flowers just with photographs. Check it out!!

Balloon Cards or Pop up Birthday Cards

Here are a few Birthday Cards that I made recently which were inspired by balloons!

Fabric Bookmarks

Bookmarks always make good gifts for readers (or if the bookmarks are pretty looking they may even inspire people to read :)). Bookmarks can also be gifted along with cards. These ones are  fabric bookmarks and they were very easy to make. The green base with blue flowers is paper and the darker green on top of it is DB fabric. For making these bookmarks gluing ribbons over the fabric really helped in locking the edges and in preventing the threads from coming out.

3 Diamonds Wall Decor

There is always a time during the year when we are a little bit more free than usual and we think of ways for utilizing that time for some constructive work. During one of such occasions I thought of making this decor. This decor is made  totally out of patterned paper and is easy to make but one may feel a little monotonous cutting similar shapes in maroon and green. The edges are made with red glitter glue and yes it was a little tricky to dispense it evenly forming a line.

These were sold at Satsang Exhibition Sale at New Jeresy (2010).
