Another new month and I have stumbled on yet another hobby to keep me busy…Paper Craft!
I used to make cards and notes to my mom when I was little but gave up paper craft for fabric when I started college. In the last two weeks, I read up on the net and watched some tutorials on YouTube and Etsy Storque on making paper boxes….
In the past two weeks I made:
- 3 paper boxes made from handmade Origami paper from Sri Aurobindo Handmade Paper, Pondicherry ( a pack of 50 squares in different colours from Landmark, Spencer’s Plaza)
- 5 bookmarks – 4 given to friends and family, one is MINE
- Customized a journal for my friend- with a bookmark and gift tag.
- A pair of earrings
My first Box- dark red and tomato red paper box with lid.
Second Box for Suppie- blue and butter yellow paper box with gold design on lid.
Third Box for a colleague’s little daughter Srinidhi ( I had a custom request for a girly pink box). I also included a pair of lilac earrings for Srinidhi in the box.
Personalized Journal- book mark and gift tag
P.S. I am taking up orders for Christmas so let me know if you need paper boxes -I’m willing to work out deals 😀
UPDATE: I will be starting on my first Official order of 10 origami boxes for my friend K – 8 November Saturday was supposed to be Delivery Day but K’s being generous and extending the time to next week…Hope I don’t let him down…Will post more pics of the complete batch later.
