We created Crafty Party Favours for one of my friend's son's Birthday Party. This was customise craft packages where we collated paper craft projects for kids from 3years to 10 years age group. It was nice to create a product/service with consultation from our client (8 year old Birthday Boy)

So we decided to have two different sets of project for two age groups 3yrs - 6yrs and 6yrs n Above.
We included craft projects which are quick and easy to make. Also the end product was something that the kids can use or are proud to show others!

Crafty Party Favours - Customise Craft Package Included the following
  1. Blank Greeting cards with matching envelope X 2
  2. Ribbons X 3
  3. Googly Eyes X 2

  6. Packed in White craft paper bag. (The bag can also be decorated)
  7. Customised and artistic Name Tags for all guests
All the guests loved to receive a very unique personalised gift bag at the end of the party. Many happy parents called us to thank for such creative projects which their kids can manage to do on their own without creating much mess.

This was very satisfying and fun project for us ! Let us know if we can help you create unique craft packages for any crafts; we love creating tailored packages :)

Basket Weave Scarf - Crochet Project




Hello Readers,

I am back from a short Maternity break! Yes we welcomed little boy in our family in MAY 2013. 

I am so glad to have completed this project, so now my Father-in-law can wear it everyday for his morning walks!
I love basket weave, but knitting it takes a long time. So I was browsing some easy patterns in crochet which won't go wrong. I found this beautiful picture tutorial on Pinterest.

I used Acrylic Panda Yarn about 200gms and used 3.5mm Crochet hook


Do share your winter crafts!

Salt Dough Decorations - Fun Crafts for kids



 
I am very proud to posts some of my little girl's craft work on this blog today! 
Introducing 4th Generation Crafter in our house, our daugther 3yr old Shreya.

 I loved the idea of creating salt dough gift tags on Pinterest. So I thought of introducing this art to Shreya and create something unique and fun.
 Materials:
Plain Flour
Salt
Water
Rangoli Colours (Coloured Limestone Powder)
Water Based Glue
String
Cookie Cutters

 
 Step by Step process:

1. Mix the salt and flour with water to make a pliable dough.

2. Roll the dough and cut various shapes with cookie cutter.
Make whole in each shape for tying strings for hanging later.

 3. Bake these shapes in microwave for 20-20 seconds at 900W.

4. Ensure it firms the dough without any discoloration

5. Apply glue to one side of the shape and dip in preferred rangoli powder and shake off any excess

6. Let it dry in sun for 30 minutes.

7. Tie fancy ribbons or strings and make a bunting for your kids room.


Shreya loved doing all the rolling , cutting and colouring process and is very proud to display it in her window.

Its a good activity to keep kids busy for 2-3 hours for quiet play time.

Do share your thoughts and views on it.

Happy Crafting
