This used to be...a book

This used to be, a book
Hi friends!!
Here I am with my latest project especially made for lulupu challenge...This used to be!! A BOOK! 


Well some of you may frown as to why did I do this to a book!!
Well actually this is my 15 year old book and I found it out a few days back in the in the huge pile of papers..all dusty ..I quickly picked it up and dusted it...but when I opened up the book...what I saw were holes!!! Yes..moths had eaten up the pages...some of them to the extent that I had to get rid of them!! when the  bookwas somewhat in manageable condition...
I decided to make a book birdhouse...There are a number if tutorials on the internet you can find out for yourself...
But to make life little easier..I decided to put up one here myself in case you would want to know!!
how to make:

step1: fold the first page of the book in half vertically ...
step2: Now fold the corner of this page into a triangle...
Step 3: turn over to the next page... And fold this page into a triangle from the bottom right corner

Step 4: fold the top part of the page into a triangle overlapping the bottom triangle  a little bit

Step 5: now repeat the step1 and 2 for the next page

Step 6: repeat the step 3 and 4 for the next page

Step 7:Keep on alternating between step 5 and step 6

Step 8: glue the pages



  • A 200 page book is enough to give you a flat birdhouse
  • If you wish you can use 2 flat birdhouses and attach them back to back to give a circular birdhouse...The above tutorial gives a bird house like mine with slanting slopes..

Hope this tutorial helps!!

PS: There are a few things I have put up in my blog as embellishments or album and scrapbook inserts .If you want a tutorial for any please let me know here.. It will be a pleasure to help.. 

Thank you...

White on White- Wedding Card

Hi friends!!
I have not been keeping well these days so my posts are rather irregular... Somehow I managed to make a few cards... All pain is bearable when I sit to craft :)
Here is a white on white card I made yesterday

white on white-wedding card

The beads weren't white originally...I acrylic painted them...and then dabbed on acrylic paint with a paint brush to give that added texture...the sentiment is computer generated...
The flowers are made of parchment paper and then acrylic painted...I have used the beautiful embossed cards that Priya gave me...she has a wonderful collection of these you can check them out..I have done a lot of layering and punched out borders from fiskars sunburst punch...used pearls and Brads as added embellishments from A1 craft supply ..the bow is made of locally bought net ribbon...and I love the way it has turned out!!
