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:
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
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!! 😦 ). 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 🙂
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 with “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 wanted some kind of tea- 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 🙂 🙂
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 🙂
I am just so happy to get this super surprise gift and so is cub… Thanks again 🙂
