Favourites from the year 2012.....A review post from Ideas out of the mist.

Hey everyone,
                As we reach the end of the year 2012 and welcome the next, I have put together a post of my favourite posts from the blog in the year 2012.So in case you'd missed any one of them just click on the pic / link and you'll land on the original post.

So let's begin with January.It was a very simple one with the basic idea of recycling and yet one among the most popular post on the blog.
A popsicle stick(ice cream sticks) pen stand.

In February came the ribbon bow ring post with the tutorial.

March saw the spiral ribbon hair clip tutorial.

In April I wrote a post on a handmade flower invitation cards for birthdays with a tutorial and it turned up well.

In May this year came the summer scrap book cover that I had made using the paper mache technique.

In June, I was on vacation and did not post anything.......:)

In July,  came many posts.But the one which is the most popular post from the blog till date was the rakhi making one with tutorial.The response it got surprised me.

And another one from this month was the school bus prop one.This is again a popular post.

In August I posted  a very pretty hair clips and accessory organizer / french memo board / hair bow holder with a tutorial.I love this one.

September  saw some posts on party games.A fun paper quiz can be found here.

And then came a number of posts on how to make Diwali lamps.Everyone was unique but my favourite one is this one.

November saw the handmade Monsoon themed invitation card for ladies meet / kitty.

And the final post is from December. It was a handmade evening gown birthday party invite.And I think this is the BEST creation of the year.It looked so elegant and girly and pretty.

Evening gown handmade birthday party invitation - A tutorial

Hey everyone,
                    I'm so delighted to share with you, a handmade birthday party invitation card, I made for a little girl in the neighborhood.It turned up real cute and I love it.It is a handmade dress card.So I've taken time to put together a tutorial for you ,if you want to make the same.
                     Here is what the card looks like.

To make one you'll need-
White chart paper
Decorative paper for the dress (Golden and lemon yellow in my case)
Ribbon of your colour choice
Binder clips
Scallop scissors (those that create a wavy edge)
Thin piece of card
Some patience..........LOL (And unfortunately this is not available at the stores)

Step 1 - Make a template for your card on a thin piece of card.Mine measure 4.5cm at the top horizontal line and 13cm at the bottom most horizontal line.Cut it out.I so wish I was a pro and could make a pdf template for you, so that you could have straight away downloaded it.But unfortunately I don't know how to do that and probably don't have the software.So I guess you'll have to draw taking help from the picture.Sorry.However if you can help me with how to make a pdf template,I'd appreciate that.

Step 2 - Make some mini bows out of ribbon.I used 2 colours to add some interest.

Step 3 - Place the template on your white chart paper and trace the outlines.Cut it out.
Take the decorative paper and cut it into size 13cm by 18 cm.Use scalloped scissors at one of the longer side to give it a wavy pattern.So that the dress gets that wavy look at the bottom instead of a straight line.Fan fold it(=Make pleats).
With the help of the template trace the top portion of the dress on the golden paper and cut it out too.

Step 4 - Cut out two thin pieces of paper to make the straps of the gown and paste it on the chart paper as shown below using fevicol.Next paste the top portion of the gown on the chart paper.

Fish Market - Couple Games / Ice Breaker Games for parties -2

Hey everyone,
                    Sharing with you today another couple game, which can act as an excellent ice breaker at any party that you host.Games like these help people to open up, if they don't know each other well ; Besides giving you an opportunity to host an entertaining party which people will remember for quite some time.
                    For this game you need a bigger space like a lawn, or if you're real fortunate to have a large drawing room that can act fine too.So for the preparation of this game all you have to do is to create a list of 15 common household products.I'll make a sample list for you.

1. Maggi
2. Lizol
3. Dhania powder
4. Lunch box
5. Tawa
6. Agarbatti
7. Mobile phone
8. Soap dispenser
9. Socks

Get it printed.Move the items
