I am on a roll! This is my 4th post for today. I will be on leave from Dec 23 to Jan 2 but since Manang’s going home to Samar to celebrate the New Year’s day with her family, I am expecting that I would hardly be able to check my mails and update my blog.
Anyhoo, lately, I’ve been into crafts and DIY projects.
I personally wrapped most of our gifts. The smaller gifts, manang did but I was still in charge of embellishments. I used the materials that we already have in the house: magazines, newspapers, blue ribbons (from Aki’s Christening and birthday gifts) and Japanese paper. Since our Christmas motif this year is blue, I tried to use blue and gray pages of newpapers and print outs.
Aren’t they pretty?
My concern now is bringing them to the office (and bringing the gifts from my officemate home) . The MRT guards require gifts to be opened. That I really don’t want to do because I spent 4 hours wrapping.
These two have paper pom-poms.
I like the contrast of newpaper and the blue velvet ribbon.
I was trying to achieve an artsy abtract-y fold here.
The bow is super easy to make. Just make four paper loops and tape them on top of each other.
And lastly, I am currently obsessed with paper snowflakes to the point that Rosie tells me to stop. Hehe
I love how the gifts turn out. Too bad we don’t have space under our eensy weensy Christmas tree. So I displayed them in the stairs! Nice, noh?
Sorry if I am fishing for compliments. Am just so proud of myself. Even my roommate of four years is amazed that my lazy hands are now into crafts. Martha Stewart and Sharon, watch out! Hehe. feeling!
