Christmas Nativity

I've always wanted to make this nativity set, but couldn't get myself to sit and make it. Alas, I couldn't resist, and so I  made this for Christmas, completed right before Christmas Eve. I should thank Cheryl from 'A Paper Life', who is the original creator of the Nativity set. This is my basic version. You can check her blog @

I am so pleased to see it finally done, since its only my first try; I will try to make it better next time. This is only my second 3d work.... I have a long way to go till I reach perfection ;) 

Thanks for stoppin by. 
Wish each one of you a very Merry Christmas

My first 3d Angel

With Christmas not too far away, I wanted to start practicing for my angels, so I would get better as I made more. This one's my first try at a 3d-Angel. I can do better, yeah.....:)

Cant wait for Christmas to come ;)

Birthday Card by request!

Here's a birthday card my colleague wanted me to make,
using lot of red :) 
Since it was for his Fiancee, I added 'a lot of red' 
and he was happy with the outcome. 

And offcourse.... his Fiancee loved it alot. 
After all who wouldn't love a handmade card, that too from the heart :)

3d Origami Swan

Origami is way different from Quilling and does need lots of patience.

I saw a picture of an Swan made with 3d Origami triangles and thought I should give it a try.... Well, I started cutting the paper, which was so tedious, cos I had to cut 32 rectangles from one A4 sheet of paper. I did cut 32rectangles from 16sheets and had 512 rectangular pieces. These were then turned into triangles, wow, that took all my patience, almost on the verge of quitting; but no with some encouragement and support from my Mom and Amna (check out Emirates Quilling Guild on Facebook), I didnt give up....   I continued... I folded the required triangles, then came the joining of pieces. I struggle to make the base, I think I joined and opened it atleast 6 times, and while I was going to give up (ya again) I thought I'll look up the instructions and see the video again.. only to find out, that I was doing it the wrong way... lol... my  mistake :P

But here you go, once I formed the base the building up of da body and tail of the Swan was a cake walk... 

Here she is... isnt she cute ;)

Well, next time (dont knw when that will be), but am gonna try makin a coloured one, this was just a trial :)
