Explosion box

Finally done with my first explosion box for a birthday gift.... 
I've added flowers ,lots of butterflies ,waste pieces of fabric here and there and I've done a recycling part too ...

To the cover of the explosion box I've added flowers.. The grey with white rose is made out of fabric and the green ones beside the flower are made out of tissue cloth...

The borders of  each opening are decorated with fabric... And I pulled out certain pieces of thread as I liked the look of it then.. 

The red rose behind the bird cutting in one of the opening( In the above pic the opening is in the top ) is  hand cut fabric... The red leaves in one of the border (In the above pic opening is in the bottom )behind the punched daisy is also hand cut fabric .

Now coming to the part of recycling ... were u able to guess what I have used to make the cake... Its the used thread roll... I had collected pieces of  it from the tailor and thus turned it into cake.. Lovely na !!!

Recycled craft

Was thinking for so long to do something different in recycling... 
And ya in this I've come up with many of the recycled materials here...
And seeing the challenge put up in Itsy Bitsy , I decided to collect certain things in colors of Silver
The base which is of silver color is the top of a jewellery box which I wanted for a long time to use it for some craft purpose as the box was damaged...

The wordings here read "Welcome to the world little one"... If its not clear in the pic.. I cut this using my Silhouette Cameo... Actually my first cut using it... I used Wedding card for the cutting and added Silver 3D outliner to add an effect to it... The white paper behind the cutting is also from a wedding card .. Stuck them to a small piece of granite stone which was lying waste around the house...
The thermocol heart on both sides ,I actually collected them from a shoe box and added pearls to them.

I did the mini cradle using craft sticks and painted them using Acrylic white paint.. The flowers and butterflies are made using A4 sheets and wedding cards

Coming to the Swan :-)..... The mother duck is painted white using Acrylic paint.. I used my baby boy's toy for it ... (Hope he doesn't mind..Lol) and the baby Swan I made it myself using Shilpkar clay. The silver ball in the middle my hubby had collected and given me once and now I've made use of it :-) ... Finally I added our snap to my craft stick  handmade canvas stand :-)

so what do you all think... Howz it ????
