Binder Clip Photo Stands

I have been gifting a lot of handmade things to friends but it’s been a while since I made anything for hubby. When I saw binder clip photo stand on lulupu.com today, made by Snehal, I thought I can make one for hubby. Then I could find lots of similar videos on youtube.

See what I came up with…

Photo will go where pink heart is.

Isn’t it totally awesome?! Hubby totally loved it.

Materials I used:

2″binder clip
Patterned paper for base
Plain papers for flower, leaves and tags
Scallop punch – ek success
Flower and leaf punches
Butterfly stamp (have no clue which brand, it’s a wood mounted stamp I found in my stash)
Coffee and black colour inkpads
Twine
A button
PVA glue

That’s all I guess :-)

Ciao,

Quilled Birthday Gift

Today is my best friend’s birthday and I wanted to gift him something special. What could be better than handmade gift, no?! So I made a quilled card and framed it. Have a look…

Coptic Stitch – Handmade Journal

This is my first attempt at coptic stitch book binding. I think though I can definitely improve on my skills, I still liked the results. What say? :)  :)

Let’s see how I went about it…

Steps:

1. A4 size papers, folded into half

2. Make pin holes in the fold at equal intervals

3. Coptic stitch will bind these papers into a bound journal (the link to coptic stitch is provided for your reference, though I have learnt from somewhere else!)

4. Prepare your journal cover (I used a card board, a foam sheet and fabric)

5. Attach these covers to the bound journal

6. I have used a satin ribbon to give extra jazz (it is purely optional)

7. Voila… it is ready :D

 

I am happy the way it looks. Now it will be gifted to a dear friend :)

Ciao, till we meet again :)

Love,

Sakhi
