And ............. Blast ! Finally an Explosion Box

And ............. Blast ! Finally an Explosion Box

Yes..... our crafty blog land has witnessed chain blasts in the past few weeks with an post on explosion box almost everyday......

And so here I am posting another blast ... Though many crafters have tried their hands on explosion boxes it was my dear friend Jovi  who inspired me to try one....

 I made this box on order. One of my neighbours wanted to gift their would be daughter- in - law something different and they asked me to put my creative mind at work and come out with something unusual... So I decided to make an explosion box coz even though we as crafters are very well aware of this specific article, for the non crafting people its a total WOW.. Yes again this was made and delivered last month but somehow my laziness is getting over me .....



So here it goes .. I couldn't click many snaps .. This is all I have ....




The Box :)


And here's the exploded view... I mean when opened.... I bet , nothing can beat the expression's you capture on one's face once you open the box.....
I tried to make a circular cake and it looked like one but I forgot to take a close up view of the same :(
I made four tags for the outer layer so that every one can scribble messages separately.

I however didn't wanted the inner layer to fall completely on the outer layer when opened . So I made banners with Washi tapes and tied the end of the inner layers to each other .
This is the link from where I got the idea for banner 


Here on the side you can see my lil one"s foot. She loves to watch me crafting .. And yes she even got her first certificate in Drawing ma king her mom proud :)

Happy Crafting,

New year, new resolutions and finally a post :)

Hello peeps,

How many of you make a new year resolution ?????? Hmmmmmmmmm probably all . That includes me too :) and now the important part ... How many of you stick to it till the next resolution comes up ????? Probably    most of you ... but this does not include me :( ... Yes my new year resolutions are always followed by new resolution ... not to make any resolution from next year ... which again I am unable to keep... well that's me :)

Last year end I had been constantly warning myself that in the year to come I have to post daily .... cards are being made but somehow I fail to post them ... Lazy me ... At last here I come up with my first crafty post of the new year after OMG yes after a total 15 days... but better late than never ...

I made a maze book ... yes my first .... and I finished it up in flat one hour ....


This is the cover page ( sorry for the poor quality of pictures )Flowers are handmade yes... thanks to Jovita for all the help she extends ( here help means everything ... right from dies, stamps , punches , advise and moral support . She is my WA ( whatz  up ) friend :)


The second page ... Since it was a birthday book I used the cupcakes and birthday stamps all over .... 

 Every page has a hidden tag to scribble messages ( yes ... I love to write long long long messages ... though my hubby calls them essays :( )



Since I didn't wanted the book to be handed over openly ( It looses the surprise element then ) I came up with this small bag ...

I personally feel maze book is a good option if the card is being sent by a group as people as everyone gets space to scribble their feelings for that person :)

Happy Crafting,

Lovely new things in new year :)

Hello Everyone,

Wish you all a very Happy and prosperous new year filled with loads of love , happiness and crafting goodies....

Yes there .. Loads of giveaways announced in our crafting land. Among them one is a lovely giveaway from our very own Kalindi  .. Yes it is almost two years since I got to know her ... It was very generous of her to put up a full post on the ATC she received where as some people even fail to acknowledge receipt... Well to continue with Kalindi ... That was the start of knowing her... As we started conversing ( mostly via chat ) she came across as a very chirpy and straight forward person who can say right things right openly...

Her posts are one of the few I look forward to .... not only is she a good crafter but a better writer ...

So girl ... All the very best to you for all your future en-devours ...

And there will be lots more posts to come ... Have been very lazy of late to post ....

Till then happy crafting friends,
Meghna
