Dream Catcher

Cub’s friend loved the dream catchers that I made earlier and she wanted one.  I had promised to make one for her and what better occasion than her birthday. So here it is… The one I made for her.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Ciao,

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? ๐Ÿ™‚ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ˜€

 

I am happy the way it looks. Now it will be gifted to a dear friend ๐Ÿ™‚

Ciao, till we meet again ๐Ÿ™‚

Love,

Sakhi

Wah Taj!

It was hubby’s birthday a few days back and I was a little confused as to what to gift him. Then a brilliant (!) idea struck me and I bought him 500 pieces Jigsaw puzzle (I wanted to buy 1000 pieces one, but sadly that store did not have it!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆย  ). Dear hubby worked on it laboriously for almost four day (minus a few hours, hee hee…) and could accomplish the task.

Symbol of love was completed with a lot of labour of love ๐Ÿ™‚

Surpreeeeezzzzz

My BIL came to Bangalore yesterday and he said that I have got a parcel from my SIL. I was surprised to hear that since I had not asked for anything from her.

The box was all tapped withย  “Fragile” tags… I got even more curious as to what can this big box contain. I opened it with enthusiasm of a child and woila, what do I find inside!!!

I had passingly mentioned to SIL when she has last visited us that I wantedย some kind of tea-ย glasses with stand (routinely used at the roadside tea stall in India) and I was unable to find it in Bangalore (or probably I was not searching at the right places). I had resigned to the fact that I might not find it here. But she had not forgotten about it and she searched and searched and finally got it for me and sent it from Mumbai. I was thrilled to see what I wanted for so long…

Ah… what a beauty! It will be fun to have and serve some awesome “adarakhwali chai” (ginger tea) in this cold weather.

Thank you soooooooooo much Seju for this lovely and thoughtful gift. I cannot tell you enough how I have loved it ๐Ÿ™‚ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

And guys, this was not enough. There was something else too in that box…

A beautyful cloth bag with some small gift for cub. SIL’s daughter had sent a birthday gift for Cub… What a cute penstand with a cute handmade doll… as cute as herself. Thank you so much sweetheart ๐Ÿ™‚

I am just so happy to get this super surprise gift and so is cub… Thanks again ๐Ÿ™‚

What say guys???

Love,

Sakhi
