Here’s how the card looks before the looong process of opening it begins —

This may look a little confusing so let me help you out here ! The peach pull outs are pasted to the back of the black doors. They also contain photos on the front and back and a big message in the centre.

On pulling out the heart papered doors you get

This in itself can be designed as a single card but in this model it serves to add flavor to the entire card. Now on opening the striped strips, we come across a classy red pouch that holds many photo tags and birthday messages !

Handmade Wall Hanging

How do we display our photos? In photo frames would be the most common answer. Here’s a different way of displaying your photos in a very creative way. I made a wall hanging that can hold three photos. It is a two way hanging meaning that it can be hung on either side ! Here, lemme show you how-

This is one way of hanging it. I do love the butterflies ! They add a very cute touch ! More than three slots can be made to hold photos. Now the other way of hanging it itIMG_20151125_115722368

This is a gift ordered by a loving son for his amazing parents. I’ve written notes to that effect on the back of the hanging and stuck paper flowers to create an adorable picture. So this is the second way of hanging up the gift πŸ™‚

Exploding Boxes

As you can see I’m becoming an expert on making and designing various exploding boxes. They have become really popular with many people wanting to gift their loved ones with an exploding box of their own. They make great gifts to present someone really special and can be used for all occasions. The box that I made was ordered by a loving husband to his wife wishing her all the best πŸ™‚

I incorporated a pastel theme all over the box and this is how it looks

Once you open the lid and the box explodes out,the inside looks something like this

Heart Stamped Card

Take a look at our heart stamped greeting card. It gives the impression of being Β a pop up card due to the intricate folding with a birthday message written at the centre of the card.The cover of the card looks like any other card with a design and a tag-

Check out the cute heart stamps and the curvy font of the birthday message ! Its a simple idea but an elegant one at that πŸ™‚

 

 

DIY Photo Frame

To deviate a little from all the CD photo frames and stuff, here’s an idea to make a lovely photo frame that looks elegant and extremely neat. This is due to all the folding that takes place when making the said frame. I, personally love the diamond shape (in which you place your photo) that you get once the frame is done.

So here’s how it looks

You can fold it upon itself,giving it an appearance of a book. For a nice finishing touch,tie a ribbon around the book.

Happy Crafting ! πŸ™‚
