DIY magazines stand

We usually try to sell magazines after use instead we can use them in  a different way. These stands present one way. You can see in the picture that i made one stand for my cute teddy bear and  the other one  for my Lord Ganesha.

To make the teddy bear stand. 

Get  the magazine you want to work with. First  open a page and  fold it like a triangle both sides as i have done in picture 1 and 2. You have to make sure that the lower edges of the triangles form a straight line so as to get a perfect shape.

You  have to fold the remaining  pages as you did  with the  first page. see  picture 3.

After folding all the pages, remove the cover pages and staple the first and the last folded pages.

Finally the stand is ready. 

To make the stand on which i have placed Lord Ganesha.

You have to fold  all the pages half length wise.
Remove the cover pages like before and attach the first and the last pages.
That's all! You are done with the stand.


Awesome and still simple, isn't it? Why don't you go and make one right now?

Beads flowers

I beaded these flowers almost 22 years back for designing on a sari.The work involves patience.Again now i started these beading works.   i will try to post my tutorial on this flower making.
To make this flower one needs patience as the beads are so small in size. actually i clicked this image for a close-up view . i beaded these to embellish on my sari . but before doing so, i attached these on my daughter's top. I then changed my mind and removed them from the top and snapped this photo at that very moment. That's why you can see threads coming out of the flowers.
