Paper Quilling


At the Chennai Book Fair this year, I spent a good five thousand rupees buying books for my brats and also to gift to a few other kids! At the end of the purchase, I figured out that I hadn’t bought a single book for myself! Now, be nice and say what a good mommy I am to endure such changes as putting myself last 🙂 It’s another thing that I got myself a Paper Quilling and a Madhubani Painting kit, something I’ve been wanting to try for a long time! But it does not count, right? The stuff was sitting idle on my shelf, with all the covers intact until the need came! Vyas had to do a greeting card for his mommy as part of his craft class, and his next project is a paper bag!

Here’s what he did with a little help from me.. I helped him roll the strips on the pin and he did the rest.. He insisted on using chamkis which i wasn’t too happy about, but it is his project and he did it the way he wanted it.. He wanted to keep in ‘simple’ not for the aesthetics aspect, but sheer laziness to spend a little extra time on intricate or elaborate designs! Lazy BUM! Still, it turned out nice.. He wouldn’t tell me what he was going to write on the card though.. I’ll get to see only when it is returned after assessment 😐
