Birthday Favor Bag Contents - Day#2

So the next common item that went into the favor bag was pens/pencils and ofcourse they had to have a handmade feel. My client didn't want the plain store bought ones. And can you imagine, this became the most challenging tasks of all. I was clueless as to what to do :D

I tried a couple of things (pattern paper, masking tape, etc) which didn't work out for me before I had my light bulb moment in the middle of the night :)

And so here's what I did. I took these boring black and grey pencils,

And turned them into these bright and cheerful ones with a felt topper to keep their tips cozy :D

And here are my cute little felt toppers. They just make me happy :D

I wrapped the pencils with some fun kids print tape that I received as part of my birthday present from Tejal last year. All the felt toppers are hand-stitched :)

This is one of my favorite items in the favor bags! Will be back again soon with the next one!

See ya soon!

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 

Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching

Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

Here is another variations I came up with.
