Love Mail Box

Hi Crafty People,

I'm back again with a Love mail box. It had been long in my mind, and had seen it about 2 weeks ago on pinterest and had loved it. I dont remember the board where I saw it, but it had been on my to do list sincee then.
You know, everytime I see something good, I note it down and look down upon the instructions on the net to find myself one and make it.
I found the instructions here http://www.simplymodernmom.com/2010/01/special-delivery-paper-mailbox-tutorial-and-pattern/
but I did some alterations to suit my dimensions.

Here's what I made:


 I had made an prima rose flower following a tutorial, it's the pink one there, I agree that it's not very pretty so have decided to make more of these till i get perfection :)



I have made 2 mini love cards along with it to be kept inside the mail box !


This is how the mailbox looks like when completely closed.. I have handwritten the Love sentiment on the flag and have outlined it with silver sparkle pen. My new thing here is the stamps !!!
I hope you all liked my new creation!!
All Thanks to simple modern mom!!!

  10. This is a fabulous project Manu. Lots of work and detail involved. Our Challenge this week at Creative Craft Challenge is 'New Beginnings'. This could be for example a change in your life, new baby, wedding etc. Unfortunately I could not see that connection with your project, you had mentioned new stamps which would not be relevant to the Challenge set.

Hook on to the Explosion Boxes.. this time it's a carousel one !!!

Hi Crafty People..

I'm certainly hooked on to making Explosion Boxes.. they are sooper dooper fun to make and there is such a lot of craziness in making them, a part of this craziness comes from the fact that, it's fun to watch the recipients reactions (of course, if you personally give it to them).. they are always amazing :)

This time around, I experimented by Making a carousel explosion box since I wanted to make one of each shape and size.

Here is what I made !!!
A Carousel Shaped Explosion Box with a Love is.. Card..

I have tried my hand at making madhubani painting earlier and a preview of the madhubani inspired magnets can be viewed here.

Gond paintings are native to gond tribal community which hails mainly from the areas in central India. India has such rich and amazing forms of art that it's truly wonderful to see and try some of them.

Gond paintings are amazing to look at, truly intricate yet very very simple. The designs are basically evolved from everyday life yet the intricate dots, dashes and lines which fill up these everyday life inspired art form are amazing to fill up.

Here's what I made






Made on Stretched canvas with Acrylic paints.

I hope you all liked my humble attempt at making these. Custom orders for making these paintings are open. I will be happy to make one for you. For details,…
