This used to be, a kitchen towel roll !

I don't know how long it has been since I recycled something and oh boy, I missed it so much. So when I saw the challenge at Lulupu blog and the It's a wrap challenge at Lessology, I knew what I had to do.

I picked up a kitchen towel roll tube from the HUGE pile that I have been saving to recycle and turned them into these cute birthday favors. They will be so perfect for a space themed birthday party :)

The idea isn't my original and I had seen these somewhere on the net, most probably at Marth Stewart's site and I had been wanting to try making these. They are super simple to make, easy to produce in bulk and can be used in so many different ways. I have shown you these has candy favors but use them as party decorations, table place cards, use them to display table numbers or how about label your food with these. The possibilities are endless.

And I am so excited to think of all the things to do with these rockets, that I am secretly hoping for my daughter to ask me for a space themed birthday party in the future :D

Hope you'll give these a try!

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.
