cardboard Organiser

Hei guys,

I made a bottle organizer with cardboard. Just cut the cardboard in the below shape and stuck them together and later used a cable decorator sticker and covered the outer sides of it.





Hope you like this idea.

newspaper weaving


Newspaper weaving :

               There are no proper records of how and when newspaper weaving started but it is said that it's the most easy way to recycle a newspaper that many across the globe do it for either their household use and for sale. I believe this technique would have started in the 19th century as that's when newspapers became very common among people and some one would have gotten this idea of crafting.


               A website namely wisegeek states that "Paper weaving is a popular school craft, particularly for young children. Weaving helps children develop dexterity and coordination and can also reinforce lessons on colors and patterns. It does not take a lot of talent to make a simple woven mat, and young artists of all skill levels can participate and quickly master the technique.". It also states that Ancient Japanese Art of Origami included Paper weaving as well as in Korean traditional crafts. So might be there are the mother to this creation. 


                 Another website (Dickblick) states that ancient basket weaving technique emerged into Paper weaving. It also shows the initial paper weaved technique. see below and if possible the sticky link of that website too. 

               
                        There are many around the world who have found out different objects that can be made out of this technique. For example, a basket, a bowl, a bag, animals, birds, home decor and this list goes endless. 

                see below pictures of one of the model i made with this weaving technique. 







Lets me share the technique of making the raw material for this weaving technique before I leave. 




 I have used weavers pictures on the internet to describe the technique and the website is linked below for further references.

Polythene flowers

Tired of loneliness and lack of craft supplies has made me use the least expensive Rag way to make crafts. I have used Paper rolls as the stem and polythene bags for the flowers and stem wraps, and some thread to hold the polythene together. And tadaaa my polythene flowers.. Loving them and I started giving it out to friends houses near by and they are loving it too.  


Fun is some of them started collecting colored polythene bags for me so I can use them for these, and my cupboard is stacked up with bags of polythene.. :)

Bottle and rice

Hi world,

the place I'm put up rite now does not have any craft store near by, and I haven't got an opportunity to loaf about to find one such place where I can buy some materials and hence need to use those items that I can find in my grocery store.

I used tightly rolled Newspaper rolls as the stick to make the stem of the flowers, and polythene grocery bags for the flowers, bugs and the wrap for the stem. cleaned an olive oil bottle for the vase and filled it with food colored rice and acyrlic colored rice layering it up neatly.









hope you all like it, follow my page if you do.
