Tea Light holder Cards


How are you all doing? Crafting much? The state of affairs on this end is sad. I talked about holiday hangover in my last post. Sadly, I am still not over it and kind of lost about what I want to do next. I have been catching up on your blogs and that's about all that I have done for the past week. While looking at Pamellia's latest post about her gift for her mom, I suddenly realized that I do have one forgotten project that I never posted. Her's is gorgeous! Do check it out.

I made some tea light holder cards for Diwali gifts before my vacation and never bothered to post.Now that I have nothing worthwhile to share, I have decided to share those here, even though they are not my best work and maybe make me cringe a little. These are super simple and in some cases boring too.:-).My excuse is that I was in a hurry and I am sticking to it.:-)

Here are some of them which were a bit passable.Others I refuse to share.:-).I made use of scrap papers,stickers and some stamping and heat embossing.

Here is how the inside looks for one of the cards

I had not added a tag or a pocket when I took the pictures.Ideally you need to have something on the left side to write your greeting /message.

Okay that's it.I hope I wake up from my slumber and do something creative today.Wish me luck.:-)

Anything But A Card Challenge #41 : Anything goes


First of all apologies to all my bloggy friends for being remiss in visiting your blogs and admiring your creations.I have been missing from the blogosphere on account of some long due vacation and then the ensuing holiday hangover. I need to do a lot of catching up.:-)

I am slowly getting back into a regular schedule and today's project is my DT inspiration project for Anything But a Card challenge #41.The theme this time is 'Anything Goes' (as long as it's not a card), my favourite kind of challenge theme.:-)

My project is something that I have done before too.I made some faux tiles and used them to alter some boxes.I love the look of these tiles and also love the fact that it is a wonderful use of all those little cut outs or tags you get in paper collections.

Making these tiles is super simple. Cut chipboard into the required sizes, adhere your chosen designs with mod/podge or glue. Use Mod Podge Dimensional magic or Glossy accents and apply an even layer and let it air dry.

.Do not move or touch or tilt your tiles till they are dry. I left all of these to dry overnight. If you get bubbles while applying the product, use a sharp needle or a pin to prick the bubbles.

The photos do not show it but these do look a lot like tiles and have a nice gloss feel and finish to them.

Hope you like this project.We have new inspiration from our talented team every week. Do check them out and if you have crafted some stuff, go ahead and share with us. We love looking at your gorgeous projects.
