Craft with Kids: Easy handmade card using yarn + Video

A lot of you ask me how I manage to craft with a very active little one around and what activities we do together.

Starting this year,  I will share easy ideas on crafting with kids. These would be activities that will also help improve their fine motor skills. The supplies used will be bare minimum and easily available locally.
Don't forget to assist your child and enjoy crafting with them.

                               ******************DISCLAIMER*******************

My daughter is 4.5 years old. Please make sure your child is old enough for the activities before you give any of them a try and don't leave them alone with sharp tools like scissors. Stay safe, be happy !

  ******************  ******************  ******************  ******************


For today’s craft activity, we’ll make a simple card using only 3 basic supplies, we’ll need card stock, some yarn in different colors and glue and that’s it.



To start with, draw some shapes on the card stock with a pencil. I chose to draw flowers because they are the easiest but you can really draw any image you like.

Trace the pencil lines with glue and adhere yarn. A simple as that :) 

Watch the video here to see the complete process (My daughter, Aadya makes and appearance too :) )



I hope you enjoy watching these :)

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?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.

Birthday Explosion Box!

Here is something that I am very proud of. This was my first attempt at a 3D paper cake and I adore how it turned out. More loved because I am not really a pink girl and this explosion is all pink and I still love it :)



Don't ya love that cake? By the way, I recycled the "Happy Birthday" from an actual birthday cake :D
I am entering this for the Lessology Challenge#29 - Birthday Party Lulupu Challenge#17 - Fancy Me (I fancy special fold cards and I fancy trying out new things) Itsy Bitsy Challenge - Pretty with Pink (Pink, pearls, pattern papers, posy, paper clips, photographs)
Hope you fellas like it !
