Artsy-Crafty April

As usual didn't manage to complete the projects on time for the Artsy Crafty project at Shruti's blog. Anyways here are the entries.

Fruit Basket.



Eli the Elephant hat.


Growing up, we used to make papermache stuff by grinding together fenugreek and paper. But it was a tedious process as you had to grind it by hand. So when Shruti announced the April Artsy Crafty contest, I turned to Google baba for help. That's when I came to know about creating paper mache craft using paper strips and balloons. Below are some of the snaps taken during the process.

Update:
Added a few photos on how this was done.

@Me: yes, the basket is by Pappa and the Elephant is by Thambi. Have uploaded some more snaps.

@Uma: Thanks for dropping by. I love your updates about Pattu. Have updated with some details on how we did it. Yes, we used full length newspaper stips to make the handle.

I agree with many points. But in some areas, I feel we need to be more aggressive. Just my opinion. Love ya. Wedding Dress Shops, GPS Louboutin Shoes christian louboutin fur boots. Mother Of Bride
