1st bday Invites

Hello all

Happy to post again, hoping to make it a habit again. So today are some 1st bday invites made to order recently. Here are the pics first

Its a pretty simple and easy to do one. But i liked the concept a lot. The number '1' is handcut. I dint have a die for numbers so i cut it by hand and glittered it myself. It is quiet easy to glitter with local glitters. Fevicol in one plate and glitter on another plate. Actually i dint have time to buy glittered sheets, it was a last minute one, so i went in for handcut and self glittered 1s. Though this saves you a lot.

First rounded and distressed the edges, then the golden thread was tied three times around the card and arranged neatly, then stuck the '1' on top of it.


I liked this concept a lot that i tried it for my son's bday too, with spiderman theme. Coming soon in the next post. Hope you liked it today. Thanks for dropping by.

Mangalyaan Model

Hi everybody,

a big hello to all. I know i have been missing from blogland for more than 3 months. April and May we had summer camp for kids where we did LOTS of projects. But for now am going to share one of my favorites. My daughter had a 'Speech with Property' competition last year and the property we chose was 'Mangalyaan'. And here is the model i did.

The model is based on the numerous photographs available and i have tried to replicate as much as possible. The blue squares are the solar panels. The central cube is designed to show the payloads and the propellant tank. And the large circle is the antenna. 

I started off by making the central cube which is very much similar to an explosion box. I kept adding other elements by trial and error. A lot of recycled stuff like an empty pen without refill, half a gems box, box lid, etc has been used.
