Multifold Card

Hi people

Here is a multi fold card or u can even call a mini album :)
It was a special request for the engagement ceremony. It was the first marriage in the family of my client where the bride and groom dint know about each other. I know... its peculiar. They usually marry within relation it seems. So this a first for them that the bride and groom are complete strangers. So i was requested for a project where the couple could jolt down their likes and dislikes about each other, dat is basically get to know each other.
And this is wat i came up with.
A mini full of heart shaped tags for lil notes. Check it out

I liked the title.. wat abt u?

First fold

Second fold

Third fold

Third fold (2nd album)- central panel for photo

4th fold

5th fold- full open

Another fold

Both the albums were more or less the same with few changes. It was real bulky. A total of 20 tags could be accommodated in the pockets for each album. All the tags are heart shaped, forgot to click a pic with all the tags pulled out. I have used border punches for few of the pockets
I wanted to put a lot of flowers but the pages were too bulky and so i kept it simple with a single TH tattered floral. The flower centre are adorned with small beads, very small ones.
The couple loved it and i am happy.

Thanks for dropping by.

Floral Arch!!

Hi again

A quick post again today. Ill be sharing many projects which i missed sharing here. I wonder if many would have heard about 'Aarathi plates'. Its a tamil custom during the wedding. We welcome the bridegroom just before wedding with these decorative plates and by applying tilak on his forehead. Its become fashion to decorate the plates according to a particular theme.

The theme here was Peacock. I chose the peacock colours of blue, gree n and gold and made a floral arch with it. It sure was back breaking work. All the flowers are handmade using itsy bitsy daisy die. I had to make around 35-40 flowers to make an arch without any gaps. 

I also used cherry lynn olive branches for leaves and pearls and pollens as fillers. The base of the arch is done using metal strings usually used for flower making. 

Hope u liked it and thanks for all the New Year wishes everyone. Wish u all a happy crafty year ahead!!!

A huge photo frame!!

Hello ppl...

Wish u all a very happy and prosperous New Year 2015!!

Here is my first post for the year... a photo frame. It measures 12 * 12 inches. And the frame is purely handmade including the base. Here are the pics

I have taken a red corrugated sheet for the base. The pretty yellow daisies are from TH tattered florals, i have done the centre with small brown crystals. 

See this pretty wood veneer... loved it to bits. I bought it from Shailey Agarwal, Chennai. I had been waiting for a project to use it and this one seemed right. Just adorned it with small pretty flowers and leaves.
And some doiles and metal charms... and we are done

Here is the base i made, i used wooden cardboard used for packaging, and the stands are made from cardboards too. Gave it a finished look using washis and varnish.

I also made a box to go along with it, PP, laces, washis and ribbons for it. I loved how it turned out. Thats it for today. Hope you all liked it.

Thanks for dropping by. Have a great year ahead.
