Woven paper basket

Hello everyone! Once again I'm trying out something new for myself for a change....something I've never done before but have always been intrigued to try for a long time now. I've seen photos of people posting about weaving paper baskets from old newspapers/old magazines in Facebook numerous times over the years. And each and every time I see them in my Facebook newsfeed, I would be telling myself that this is something that I want to do someday. I guess that day finally came and I am glad I did it!
I searched and searched for video tutorials on YouTube to learn how to make the simplest woven paper baskets that I could do for the first time. And I finally found one that I initially thought was simple to do. Little did I know that it was not as easy as it seems! Haha! 
Rolling the papers one by one and weaving them was really time consuming and tiring too. I didn't have a lot of time in my hands to spend making this paper basket. I only did it whenever I have some shor…

Second card design in August! Woohoo! Excited about that since I only managed to make just one in July! LOL! Been busy with other projects, I hardly have the time to make cards like I used to back in the days. It seems that making quilling kits is more in demand nowadays and preparing them do take a LOT of my time. I also have other work to do that keeps me away from the craft table. However I do hope to have more time to spend on designing cards if possible this month. I also have to make a few birthday cards for birthdays that's coming up soon. Gosh....there's just so many things to do and so little time. 
This card was requested by someone who ordered the tri-shutter card that I made in July. I was supposed to get this one done at the same time but I was just too busy at the time to do it. Luckily for me that I got me a very understanding client. She gave me all the time that I needed to get it done. 
You know it's not that easy to get new ideas for handmade cards…

First card for August! It just so happens that on the 1st of August, my Mom and I celebrated a dear old friend's birthday. So for that I made a card for the birthday girl who turned 62 this year. I still can't believe she's 62! Wow! Feeling a little old myself right now! We're 20 years apart! Known her since I was in kindergarten. Always thought that she was the prettiest school teacher at the school where my Mom and Dad taught in.
Anyways...back to the card design hahaha....as always, I would be rushing like a mad woman trying to get the card done on time as I was extremely busy at the time with orders. In the midst of figuring out what to do....I realised that she has never received a pop up card from me before. So, I thought, it would be a good idea for her to get one from me this time around. The fastest and easiest pop up for me to do when I have very little time is that pop up 3 layers or tiers birthday cake I bought from MR. DIY two years ago. I bought qui…
