Hello everyone,
This is another version of the rakhi / rakhee I posted yesterday and probably easier one if your child can handle needle and thread.

If you missed out the earlier version I posted yesterday,you can find it by clicking on the pic below.

Rakhi making instructions - version 1

Material required -
- Beaded Lace
- Organza ribbon

- Stones/buttons for decorating the center
- Piece of ribbon
- Glue

Skills Required -
If someone can handle the needle she/he can do it..........(Which essentially means NOT FOR KIDS)
