On the lid I have written ‘Best Friends’ on a tag, cut out a star and stuck it on the gift tag. I used a black and blue theme throughout the box as you can see.

The inside looks like

Balloons and gift boxes have been used to decorate the blue sides of the box and the rest has been customised using quilling paper.

I stuck a pyramid gift box in the centre which opens up to read ‘Happy Birthday’ and also serves to spice up the gift a little πŸ™‚

More Personalized Birthday Cards

Just like the greeting card with ‘Father’ or ‘Mom’ spelled out, we can also make specialized birthday cards with the name of the person receiving the card. This brings an added flavor to the ordinaryΒ idea of gifting a greeting card and makes the person feel extremely special to be gifted such a lovely card in their name ! πŸ™‚

The card spells out ‘Sravs’ which is the name of the birthday girl. It can be made to spell out anything as per your wish.

Each individual page looks like this

20 things I love about you !

This is a great gift to give someone who you won’t be seeing in a long time or someone who’s turning twenty ! The twenty things can be anything from I love your smile, I love your kind heart to I love the way you take care of me and so on. They can be written in small handmade envelopes like I have done or in handwritten notes encased in a glass jar.

To make it even more colorful and pretty and mysterious I put the envelopes in a hand stitched pouch made out of transparent wrapping paper !

I also attached cute little gift tags and tied the whole thing up with a white satin ribbon πŸ™‚

It needn’t be just 20 things. It can be more like a 100 things and so on. Another way to encase the little notes as i said earlier is in a glass jar like this

Pastel Pink Jewelry Box

My handmade jewelry box opens up to reveal three circular trays for storing assorted jewelry and other trinkets. It has been decorated in pastel colors and satin pink ribbons to hold the box together. I was very excited to see the final box after spending so much time on making it. It turned out better than I expected and here’s how it looks—

The festival, Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan is a Hindu festival and is also a secular festival which celebrates the love and duty between brothers and sisters.

There are many models of rakhis that we make which can be customized especially for you and this is one of the simpler models.

Stall #76 :)

This is our first showcase and let me tell you we had so much fun setting up our stall at the Mahila Business Mela in Hyderabad. The exposure was very refreshing and we met so many people who actually encouraged us in what we were doing ! It was a two day exhibition and our stall was a roaring success,pardon me saying so myself πŸ˜€

Right from setting up and decorating our stall we managed everything ourselves. The appreciation we received made us realise why we took up crafting in the first place and overall it was an extremely fun and learning experience. πŸ™‚

Looking forward to showcasing much more of our work. Happy crafting ! πŸ™‚
