1  Handmade Solawood Garland in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Butterflyhandicraft on: July 18, 2012 03:22:18 AM
Mrs. Nirmala (My teacher) thought me another Amazing arrangement .But this time it was not a paper but a wood. Yes Its called Solawood .I didn't think of creating flower using wood. My first question to my teacher was "How is it possible?" .

After some days Nirmala come up with this wood and I was like ... wow.

The process of making bud is extremely simple and anyone can do it.(will post video tutorial soon).

It all started by creating a single Solawood Jasmine bud.



After few minutes there were many buds.



Total 75 buds are needed to create Garland out of it. I did it and it was fun doing it Smiley. At last I finished 75 buds .Did little bit of coloring .

It was a time to tie them together. I handed them over to Nirmala. (You guessed it right)She is the Master Moreover I didn't want to make it worse by tying it myself Smiley.

But there is always a another way of doing it .You give these buds to any garland makers and they will do it for you Smiley .

Finally I got the beautiful garland made out of Solawood .



My teacher told me a funny incidence about Solawood garland. Back in 90's, She used to make these garland. At one fine day she decided to give it to her friend .It was her birthday. Her friend took it and wore it for the day. Next day she kept it in fridge thinking its a real jasmine garland J . The next day she wore it again. Every day she kept on following the same routine .Two weeks passed and now she started feeling something fishy about it. She asked the teacher and Nirmala revealed the secret Smiley .

Make it once and use forever.

I'm inspired by all your comments to craft some more.

2  Handmade Flower Creeper. in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Butterflyhandicraft on: July 09, 2012 09:11:25 PM
I was very excited when Mrs. Nirmala(My Craft teacher) was going to teach creeper arrangement. Making the leaves was the first mammoth target. Tying flowers together with leaves is also very time consuming. However all the efforts seems worth when I look at the final product. I loved the making of cute little flowers that goes with the creeper.

Here is the Final Product Hope you like it.

4  Art of Paper Flowers. in Craftalongs by Butterflyhandicraft on: July 03, 2012 03:42:52 AM
Hi Friends,

i used to feel sad when flowers were plucked apart from tree.The idea of separating them from their loved ones(a tree) for gifting our loved ones was a pain to me.

I knew nothing about making paper flower until i meet my craft teacher.

I will love if i find someone with same interest.

Posting here some of my creations.

I believe Arranging flowers has a closer resemblance to expressing your love.You can do it in many ways .The more you indulge the more it flourishes .


I knew very little about flower arrangement until i met my teacher Mrs. Nirmala.
I hope you like the outcome.(All credit goes to my teacher)
