I had no idea of this beautiful craft until my friend Ramya taught me this. She is a gem of a friend, humourous, active and very talented. Thankyou ramya for teaching me this beautiful craft.. Now i can create my own matching jewels. :)

Here is a picture of my First jewellery set - Chain, Bracelet and Ear rings

Materials Required:
  • Cardboard box - 1
  • Colour sheets of paper
  • Cut out of any design
  • Glue
  • Scissors

How to make it:

Choose a cardboard box that can hold at least few of them. The height of the front of the box should be few cm's lesser than the back (just like a post box). Cover the box with coloured sheet of paper of your choice and glue it. Cut out designs from a magazine that can go as a display in the front of the box or even some photos or pictures of nature, animals or flowers will do. Glue it in the front and decorate as you wish. I used a photo of a flower vase and decorated the sides with some glitters. This is a wonderful craft idea for Kids.

These umbrellas are used for decorating milkshakes and desserts. I have a hobby of collecting those cute little umbrellas whenever i drink or eat some desserts at the restaurants. But, those here are handmade ones to decorate the juices and shakes i make for my Cooking Blog.

Materials Required:

  • Colourful sheet of paper - 1
  • Markers
  • Toothpicks
  • Glue
  • Scissors


How to make it:

Mark the round shape on a designed sheet of paper (use a magazine paper for shiny surface). Cut out the round shape and fold into two. Open and again fold on the other side and repeat until you get eight lines. Prick a toothpick at the center and apply little glue to make the toothpick stick with the paper. Open to get an umbrella.

Materials Required:
  • Tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Thread


How to make it:

Cut a long strip (about 15 inches length and width of about 5 inches) out of the tissue paper. Fold it into two. Now you have a 2-ply sheet of dimension 15* 2.5 inches. Cut the full stretch of the paper until the center (not on the folded side) with frequent intervals (about 1.5 cm). Twist the ends as shown in the above picture. Starting at an end, crush and roll it to make a flower (Insert a metal string while rolling if you need a stem). Tie with a thread.
I used the festive tissue papers that is used for stuffing tote bags and gift boxes.

Materials Required:
  • Salt can - 1 ( made of cardboard)
  • Blank white paper
  • Small piece of cardboard
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Colours ( crayons or water colours)
How to make it:

Empty salt can, peel the outer covering and take off the metal closure on top. Make an opening (not too big) until the center of the can. Take a small piece of cardboard and make a slot at the center. Glue it on, top covering the opening. Paint the can with colours of your choice. Draw the required pictures on a blank white paper. Colour and cut out the pictures. Stick the pictures on the can. Let it dry.

My theme is space travel. Here, i used black paint for the can and yellow for the borders, top and bottom. For galaxy effect, i did spray painting with white colour. I drew some planets and space craft on a white paper, coloured them using water colours and cut them to stick in the can.
