Engagement Ring Tray..with Quilling

In my previous post I mentioned about an order for an engagement ring tray. Since both the bride and groom had an hotel industry background, we thought of making a restaurant theme ring tray with miniature quilling. We bought a bamboo tray  and decorated it with ribbons, beads, pearls . 
                Also, quilled miniature stuff was stuck on tables made from cardboard.  My friend made fruits, pasta, ice-cream, french fries and little quilled roses. It was a fun experience.

We received an order for an engagement ring tray. I was super excited  and made some of these miniatures for the same. Hope it doesn't make you hungry....:)

             I will share the pictures of the engagement ring tray in my next post.

Yum Yum!!

The classic combo!

How about some wine???

Wedding return gifts...

We received an order of making 100 bags ( bags containing haldi-kumkum, rice, betel nut )  for a wedding ceremony . An offering of this bag and a gift was made  to all married women attending the ceremony. It is a ritual performed to signify her marital status. 
          We came up with an idea of making dolls using thin plastic bags and filling rice for the body and betel nut for the head. These sections were tied using rubber bands and were covered later with some ribbons and lace. Other details were completed using fabric colours. We used stickers (bindis) for eyes and lips. Hope you like them.


3D Quilling-Miniature Plants

Hellooo....It's been long since I have posted on my blog. I was busy with some personal issues and was unwell. I kept myselves busy with crafts to ease stress and boost my confidence during this phase. Finally, everything's all well now ...
        I made some very simple miniature plants. One of them was a gift to my friend while the others for an order that we received.  

Simple is beautiful!

Quilled Birds

I had mentioned about these quilled birds in my last post. I fell in love with these cuties when I saw the pictures and the video here. This you tube video made it a lot easier. I have not yet decided how I would put these to use.  I can make a mobile or may be.. frame it .  

        I was in such a hurry to try making one of these  that I literally used a torn grocery plastic bag  ,a small piece of thermocol sheet as the base and drew  the sketch as quickly as I could. Look at the last picture  ( very untidy). I was really excited when the first one was done and made 3 more. 

       My husband loved them too!

Pineapple Gift Box

Few days back we received an order for a decorative gift box for an engagement ceremony which had to be completed in just 2 days. We thought a lot and were not sure if we would complete it since both of us had guest at home. Since there was not a lot of time in hand, we had to hurry . We bought a plastic jar, ribbons, coloured stones, glue and started with our new creation. Our customer had given us the freedom to do whatever we wanted since she was impressed with our previous assignments. Folding those ribbons was a bit of a task but we were really very happy with the results. Also, our customer and the guests appreciated our efforts  during the ceremony and promised to give us business in the near future.
