This is used to .... CD Cover

Hi friends,

This is my second post on recycled craft. This time I have taken an CD cover. After placing the CDs inside the album, these cover will be left behind. It can be converted into a mini book / catalogue / guide / scrapbook / Wall hanging.
Here is my Idea.

Cut the CD cover into two halves. Now keep the CD on a cardstock/chart and cut it in the shape of CD cover.

Now choose what you want to put inside it. I have chosen the basic quilling techinques and sticked each shapes on the chart paper as below.

Punch two holes in the edge for the ribbon to run. Now tie it all together.

It will be perfect gift for kids/ anyone to spend their holidays.

Those who are taking quilling classes, You can give this to your students. They will certainly preserve it like a treasure.

Materials used:
Waste CD Cover - 1
Velvet paper(dark pink pasted over the CD), beads & chart - local shop
Punch papers - Itsy Bitsy

Hope you all enjoyed.

Elephant with Umbrella

Hi friends,

Elephant is always close to my heart. I don't know why? From childhood i have seen elephants in all our temple and family rituals. It will be adorned with nettipattam, bells and necklaces. A person mounted on the elephants will hod a coloured umbrella. 

Unforgottable are those days. Now I am totally detached from my home town. Missing all those rituals. Hence decided to do a quilled wall frame of baby elephant with umbrella. Here he is..

Isn't he the cutest little elephant ever!
