Shells From The Beach Of Cadiz Spain(4)
I am blogging from a few years & I am enjoying this fun a lot.. The best part of blogging fun is to have some wonderful Creative Friends from all over the world, blogging is the best platform if you want to stay connected with some creative minds, follow the people of your taste & then enjoy the fun stuff from them.. how nice is this.. Although there are so many social networks for the similar purpose of connection/communication BUT having a blog or website is something more interesting than having any social media account.. well the both medias are inter-connected with each other these days. Social networks can provide you more readers & visitors as well so both medias are fun actually.. Eeww where I am going!! Back to the today’s post now.. I have shared some Shell crafts before too & here today I got some shells.. yay!! so why not to share with you!
During these couple years of blogging, I have received so many beautiful packages of creative things from different countries of the world, (sent by any company or any co-blogger) from Canada, Georgia, Washington, Los Angeles, China, Turkey, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Italy, UK, And this time I got a package from Spain..wanna see the stuff inside? check..
One of my crafty blogger friend Maria Mercedes sent me some beautiful shells from the beach of Cadiz, Spain. She lives near a beach & shares some creations made with beautiful shells, she is also sharing lots of other creative stuff of her handmade things on her colorful blog elolordecadiz.blogspot.com , she is very talented.. when I saw her handcrafted things, I was like.. WAOO..
The white clutch seems simple, I am thinking about decoupaging it.. shhhh don’t tell anyone, specially Maria.. haha. hope she wont mind my version when I will be experimenting something with it..well the scented candle smells nice!
Yesterday I was playing with these shells & thinking about using these in any of my crafty creation.(I have finalized what I will be creating..Mystery!! wink*) I shake this little shell & suddenly a little lazy worm kind of thing came out from this.. Awww..what a little poor guy worm came from overseas to meet Creative Khadija..(another wink*) haha, but seriously I am not that brave to hold it for a while, So quickly I pack the shell again in a plastic bag & disappear.. Later with the help of my elder brother I feel relax.. haha.. sorry I was excited so forget to take worm’s pic..but believe me he is still inside this shell..
I was thinking when Maria was collecting the shells from the beach one morning, This shell worm was not sure about traveling overseas & about breathing in the air of Pakistan..from beach to around hill areas.. how interesting it seems.. this is how from where something belongs & where they reach one day.. mind blowing.. isn’t it? So never ignore the little things, they can be more unique & powerful.. the other shells are still lying there on that beach may be, but see this one have enjoyed the air travel as well.. haha. sorry I am so talkative today!!
Thanks again to Maria Mercedes, I will be using her gifted shells in a creative way & I hope she will be enjoying!
Thanks for reading the post, I hope you were not boring!
Here you can see some of my shell crafts, but excuse me first, these posts are from my archives when I start blogging, so ignore the little mistakes & rough posts/pictures!
Have a great Day!
Anthro Inspired Bracelet(9)
Making jewelry DIY is fun, Although I wear these not all the time but I like making these & sharing the easy ideas about jewelry making.. so fun.. So That’s why I like sharing these easy DIY ideas with my friends via blogging too. Today I am also going to share a bracelet which is anthro inspired. A wrist accessory tutorial today..Wrist accessories are always catching my interest more than any other jewelry stuff, do you like bracelets & cuffs? If you like them, then definitely you would like to learn the making of these accessories for creating wrist accessory for yourself or for gifting others too.. SO let’s have a look at what I am sharing today!
I saw this bling & beautiful bracelet by Anthropologie & I love it.. specially when I remember there was a bling patch I was having in my crafty closet.. so I thought to why not to use that in making of a Anthro’s Inspired bracelet.. my version is a bit different but not bad I guess.. because its making is super easy! you don’t need to have a bunch of stuff to create this simple bracelet.. all you need to have is just a few things & its done.. let’s see the how-to now..
Things you will need to have for making this anthro’s inspired bracelet
For its making, first you will be measuring the size of your wrist & then cut the belt or leather piece wherever you are about to paste the bling patch. The size of patch is bigger than my wrist, so you may not notice the base of the belt while I am wearing the bracelet. I cut the belt & then paste the patch over it with adhesive glue.. that’s alright now! And my hairy arm( haha, ignore it plz..!)..so what if these are not neat..I did some blur over the pic but it doesn’t work well..right? well its winter & arms are covered with sweaters & coats..I dont thread these now! haha..
So here it was an easiest version of my anthro inspired bracelet.. its not exactly the same but a bit inspired by their version.. what do you think? Things are not that difficult & hard but its up to us how we treat with these things.. like this bracelet.. so what if Anthro’s version is difficult & expensive.. & you may be unable to create exactly like this bracelet but you can make things in your own way.. create with simple & easy things..use less stuff & try your best then.. I hope it would be easy for you because I make this in a few minutes, not so difficult really.. let’s try this & you will find it fun..
And here it is my most recent Anthro’s cuff DIY..
I hope you will like the post, keep creating & enjoying the easy fun stuff..
Spring in Pakistan(10)
February is going too fast,isn’t it.. well my February is going great as well Alhamdulillah, there was rain at the start of this month but later these days we are having sunny days now! everything seems so bright & fresh.. isn’t it a great feeling to enjoy sunny mornings & noons during winter? well I was reading over at my co-bloggers sites about snow in the US, it was oops,, to much..! looking cute but I think the people who are facing that snowy season are not much excited as I am feeling here in a sunny bright day.. haha..
Aww.. my nails.. not manicured,, seriously! but I have to do soon! In Pakistan, when the mustard plant grows in the fields & open areas, its a random sign of upcoming spring season, these mustard flowers ( sarson kay phool ) are known as spring sign. anyone remember the song by tina Saani.. phool rahi hay sarsoon..? so the basant season is also around.. we have to welcome the sunny spring season now! Don’t you like seeing fresh buds everywhere? hmm.. who don’t by the way!!
I capture many pics & all were looking cute.. isn’t it..? And would you believe all these spring images are by my phone camera..!! oh yeah, 12 mega pixel phone camera result is not bad I guess..Right!!
This above fresh leaf is also from my home garden but its edited with the app Color Splash, its a free app with a cool option of making images colorful with black & white look.. go & get it if you are in love with smartphone photography, its fun..
I capture this dry branch as well, I have shared at my Instagram too..the reason I capture this dry branch is because life is not always so colorful, bright & fresh..there are always ups & downs too..which is a part of life.. we all feel down and dry sometimes, but there we go.. spring is waiting for us but be patient!! so relax if sometimes it feels dead & dry, there is always a hidden happiness & colors behind every autumn..
Enjoy the colors of life & face the dryness sometimes.. Everything is temprary.. nothings lasts forever.. so Enjoy EVERY spring,summer,autumn,winter,moonsoon, snowfall, hails & storms.. everything.. because things happening right now will be leaving one day..
I know I know I know really..its not easy.. may be easy to write but facing the ups & downs is not an easy task. I Wish everyone may have a wonderful life filled with tons of happiness & colors of spring..
Have a blessed start of this upcoming season. Be thankful for everything you have..! and have faith, Best is yet to come!!
Happy Friday..Thank You!
iPhone Keyring Making(12)
Making fun stuff with little ordinary things is always an enjoyable part of my crafty job. I enjoy creating these little fun things with a small effort. Its always fun to try these because ordinary things makes me happy, in one of my previous post, I was sharing with you about the random visit when I was at a book store & I have got some little things from there. My today’s fun creation is also among one of those things.
I made a keyring with an eraser which was designed as an iPhone. As I am a big fan of all these smart gadgets, so I thought to create something crafty with this. And its making was not something difficult or tricky thing.. it was totally easy & fun!
These were the erasers I bought from a local books & stationary store. There I saw too many colorful & fun thingies…but unfortunately I have crossed my school level studies.. haha.. the things were not suitable for more than 8-10 years old kid..
You can see these iPhones are not updated versions of iOS actually.. I think these are iOS 5 or 6 installed.. haha.. there I was noticing some mistakes too.. like the app “Safari” is here written as “Compass” & the app “Messages” is here “Text” for copying something, you must have the talent to copy!! but these made in china erasers were fuuny!
I take a needle from my mother’s drawer, it was a needle for sewing sweaters with no-sharp tip. So I made a hole over the place where I was going to add the jump ring. So with the help of nose pliers, I open the jump ring & fix it well in the hole. Then I add the keychain with it.
While making this keyring, you will need to be careful because an eraser is a soft thing, so be sure to work carefully! otherwise it can may be breaking from the hole part..
isn’t it easy to create fun stuff with totally ordinary thingies? Well I have an another idea, I will may be covering the surface with mod podge dimensional magic, so the 3d look of that transparent emboss effect will be making its look more interesting! right?
I am going to see these keyrings, if you want to buy any of these.. feel free to submit your queries & orders at kkcreativemind @ hotmail.com
Creativity is not something invisible, it always around us, all we need to do is just to figure out where it is.. so always feel free to make things with ordinary stuff..I mostly create with ordinary materials & unusual things.. believe me its not a shame.. its fun! ( I am doing this crafty fun creating from more than a couple years.. shamelessly.. haha) how dare someone to say anything to my ordinary craftiness.. Lol.. I am my own worst critic.. so nobody can do this job unless I am here..! haha..so enjoy the life happily & create the stuff smartly! don’t worry if its ordinary or average! just believe that its something special.. because YOU made it.. & YOU are not someone ordinary!! Yeah.. Enjoy!!
Thanks for visiting me & enjoying my crafty fun ideas. Have a look at a beautiful click by me with my iPhone.(the original one, not that eraser.. haha)
Edited & Instagrammed version of lemon plant from my home garden.
Have a great day!
3D Card Making with Thermocol(8)
Making handmade cards is just Fun! I love experimenting with different kind of paper things for paper crafts & handmade cards, & every time my experiments give me new dimension of craftyness..whenever I am trying these card making ideas, every time the end result is different as I were thinking before its making. I gather things for making a card but sometimes I skip few things from those, & there is mostly addition of some other things in it. Today I will be sharing a 3D card which I have made for a friend of mine who is a kid. yeah, believe me I have some Kids friends around me.. lucky me.. well its basically a greeting card. I was trying to make this card more colorful as you know kids likes colors & bling stuff.. So I did it with some sharp colors.
This 3 dimension card is perfect for kids.. sharp & bright colors attract kids mostly.. lets have a look how I have made this.. I work with this fun material & I already have done work with this before.. you may remember my posts from last year.
The material I have used for the making of this card’s 3D look, I use thermocol sheet. if you will remember once I shared a few of my presentation work which I made with these models, here is the archives, so you can see what I have done with these thermocol pieces before.. I had great time making these models during my studies..
For making this card, you will need to have a thermocol sheet of half inches, poster paints, glitter glue, knife, paint brushes, foam brush, card sheet & any transparent glue..
First I draw the name of my friend at thermocol & then with the help of a sharp knife I cut the sheet.. for some small areas I use hot soldering iron too. then I color the name in two colors.. and make an outline with yellow color. when It was done, so I make some glitter glue dots over it..
For making the glitter glue dots over a hard/paper stuff.. I dip the paint brush’s back side in the glue bottle & apply wherever I was going to point those.. so easy & with better result for making some glitter dots.. Then I cut the paper sheet for placing the 3D design. I also apply the glitter dots on sheet too..
While working with kids on any kids crafts, you must be careful about the minor things which can be dangerous sometimes.. like sharp knifes/ hot iron/ messy garbage (can be harmful while inhaling breath) so if you are working together you must keep these things in your mind. so the crafty projects can be more fun. if you are a craft teacher, I will suggest you to do special care while creating! kids likes to paint & draw, so do a project with thermocol sheet.. its fun! You can see some Styrofoam crafts from my previous posts HERE.
I hope you all are having a great day!
Heartistic Painted Shirt-Valentine’s Day Craft(12)
As the valentine’s day is coming near,Love is in the air.. I can see lots of interesting craft ideas & fun sharing everywhere at blogs.. I enjoy getting these ideas & cool stuff although I NEVER celebrate valentine’s day ever,, I think my everyday is more special than any V-day etc.. My everyday is filled with Love, Alhamdulillah.. so isn’t it fun to enjoy every day without any reason? well its not bad to enjoy the day with family & friends while watching TV & lots of fun as usual as its always fun there at weekends etc.. Well for those who are celebrating this day, I want to ask have you done anything yet for your blogs or for yourself? or what are the ideas in your mind for this day.. is there anything easy & unique you have done for yourself or for your loved ones? let me know..
I am always going towards all the easy kind of things, that’s why you can see all things easy by me at my website. I usually get tired by the things while creating. so mostly I head over towards the things which are easy to make. less effort & best result kinda things. so why not to create something easy but enjoyable..Valentine’s day crafts are visible everywhere around these days. And I made a project too.. so have a look at what I have done!
See..? isn’t it Heartistic? Here is the Formula.. Heart+Art+Artistic= Heartistic.. & The formula near me is; I+Heart+Art=Heartistic.. isn’t it fun formula.. lets see who understand my fun formulas & who don’t.. hehe
1- First I place a paper/card inside the shirt, so any color penetration can not be disturbing the front side of the shirt. I draw a shape of heart with the same pink color marker, it was just an outline idea before starting the whole design. 2- I apply the paint on foam brush & then use the foam craft brush as stamp pad..be carefully! 3- Start stamping & designing the shirt. 4- fill the whole heart with the design.
I made the design at the border of the shirt. when it was dry, I take a paint brush & add some dots with it in the design, now its looking more completed. but I missed one thing! while editing the pics, I notice.. I should be designing at the arm cuffs border too.. I add some glitter dots too in the design.. & it was so fun!
Lets see.. how is it? Not bad I guess!! I was not in a mood of filling the whole shirt with the design, but it was good having just a heart shape in the middle.. isn’t it fine? or if you want to fill it with more hearty stamps or designs, you can go for it..I like this simple version..
(If you want to buy this designed shirt in any color with these hearty shape & lovely look, you can place your order at firstname.lastname@example.org .I would like to design a shirt for you.. and shipping worldwide is Free.. so feel free to submit your orders)
Here are a few of my tutorials on Valentines day crafts. I hope you will like it..

My Birthday & DIY Glitter Hearts Balloons(12)
It was my Birthday this 21st. Another awesome year passed wonderfully Alhamdulillah. I am so happy & very thankful to my God almighty for each & everything I have in this beautiful life..specially I have an amazing lovely family & some wonderful friends in my life. nothing can beat these caring relationships. Every year when my birthday comes, I feel like another year passed.. if the life is increasing or decreasing? confused..hmm.. but always be thankful about what you have in your life & throw the garbage of negativity outside happily & relax. I don’t care if the life is decreasing, Life I have passed in my past was awesome & I am super hopeful to my Allah Almighty about my future years. if happiness is written there in my fate, I will be happy for Sure & if there will be any sadness written by God in my luck, so nobody can protect me from any kind of harm if its written in my by Allah. So I am super hopeful & relaxed about life & things going around me. everything is great & all is super awesome.God Almighty who gave me this wonderful life, He will definitely be protecting & blessing me with more awesomeness & happiness..
Come on to the crafty side of my life..These days I am sharing more about random stuff of life around me.. don’t you like reading these?
Actually there were many balloons I were having during the birthday bash fun. So suddenly I thought to do something fun with these. As these days its Valentine’s day celebrations going on at world wide web, so I thought why not to do something crafty like V day’s inspired. so have a look at what I have done. for making some Heartistic Balloons, all you need to have is a Heart stencil & glitter glue with foamic craft brush. that’s it.. I cut the heart shape on a card & made a stencil simply. so there is not a big deal if you want to create your own stencil for this crafty fun! First draw a heart on a card then cut the shape & your stencil is done! You will need to do some simple things. place the heart shaped stencil over balloon & fix nicely with your fingers. then brush it well with glitter paint. I use extreme glitter paints by plaid. the shape can be disturbed if your fingers will be slipping from holding balloons while doing all this. so you will need to fix these well or hang nicely. let them dry well & you have done it. if you think the shine is not as much as you want, you can also putt some glitter powder over it, sprinkle carefully & then coat it with mod podge gloss. so glitter will not be falling.
My birthday was celebrated by my family at 12 mid-night. my brothers & sisters in law were giving me surprise while my parents were not even familiar with the date on calender.haha they were also surprised because they forgot my birthday until they saw the cake.. haha.. it was fun how you were most special to your siblings & your parents forgot your special day sometimes.. hehe.. so sweet of my family.. they make my day more bright & awesome. God bless my family & friends.
In the morning I saw these balloons above hanged with my bed, when I saw these, it suddenly reminds me the late night fun & it was so cool. happy days MashaAllah.. I enjoyed my day a lot..
Well I receive wishes from my family & friends and even my Teacher call me at landline phone & I was surprised how she still remember my birthday every year, even after my leaving the college, about 3 years back.. She was teaching me during my Textile & fashion studies, so you can give the big credit to her about my creativity side. I learn a lot from her..
And here is My Niece..my elder brother’s daughter. I hold her little beautiful hand while cutting the cake. she is 6 months old but she enjoyed all this fun late night.. in fact she was surprised about what is all going on suddenly.. haha..
I hope you liked this post filled with some of my personal stuff along with a tiny tutorial on how you can spice up some simple stuff & its not a difficult job as well.. use some creativity & have fun!
Craft Planner Design(11)
People always expect too much from you, its great to do much for others while doing art projects but specially when you are having an crafty mind & some fun ideas in it all the time..Craftiness is super fun, and after having a tiny bit arty crafty nature, people always expect that they will be seeing all things creative by you.and sometimes if by chance there will not be any creativity coming from yours side while doing any work, there will may be one word at others tongue..WHY? haha.. believe me..sometimes I feel lazy & I left some ordinary thingies without making them beautiful with my creativity.. its my experience that people notice that thing more as compared to my any other crafted creations more than ever before..because people always wanna see something creative & fun from yours side.This is exactly what happened with me a few days back..
I were at a book store with my elder brother & he was busy in shopping any of his book or something while I was looking here & there about what to do else boring, so suddenly there on a small shelf where I saw some tiny beautiful thingies, they were so cute & so many, totally kids stuff..like colorful cartoon themed pencil, erasers, sharpeners, and all thing related to a KG or Montessori level school going kid.. I like those but I don’t need these thingies..so what? haha..buy these otherwise..no matter if you need to have those or not..well no problem if these are useless for me but its fun seeing these on & off.. So I bought a few things & my today’s post is also among one of those. I bought a small pocket size cute diary too..
So here it is the design/drawing I have done at the first page of this diary.. as most of you people are familiar with my name Kiran..So here it is.. this diary is kinda reminder/planner/task-to-do kind of thingie, in which I will be writing random plus necessary things about my crafty life..
I use a black pointer pen & a few colorful markers. I draw my name & make some flowers with black pen, & then filled some colors in it with the help of colorful markers. pretty simple & easy.. isn’t it fun? so you can create it with your own choice of colors & design..
I hope you liked it.. my today’s post is not something tutorial or anything super crafty or interesting, but it was just a fun idea on how you can restyle your ordinary little things of daily use. I draw this at first page & whenever I open the diary, some warm/vibrant colors are always welcoming me with my name Kiran..( meaning of the name Kiran is Sunshine, & something which always sparkle).. so this colorful shiny page is suitable for me with my name.. I am so happy at everything I have, no matter if its small or big.. So enjoy every little moment of life..because it will never be back again, so Have fun & be bright all the time.. stay successful my friends..
You can see all of my freehand designs & sketching HERE, If you want to buy any of my colorful sketches/drawings or your names done by me, you can drop me an email & I will be making your name drawing too.. I ship worldwide..
Have a Great colorful & bright life ahead..
DIY Anthro Inspired Cuff(28)
Its Winter…I am enjoying..as its one of my favorite season, so what if its brrrrrr cold outside, I was not going outside & mostly were enjoying at home while creating & making fun, so its the perfect time to craft & create without getting bored.. Well its cold here, mornings are foggy & days are sunny with cool wind coming from Margalla hills I guess.. & the evenings & nights are more cold..I am waiting for the rain but I don’t know why there is no perfect rain of winter yet.. I want snowfall too but it never comes here in the area where I am living..ahh.. let’s see..Well whatever the weather is, I wish its filled with happiness & success with the blessings of Allah Almighty..
I have shared many anthro inspired accessories in the past, so today again I am going to share something inspired by anthropolgie. so come on to the today’s post now! I am going to share a wrist accessory tutorial today..Wrist accessories are always catching my interest more than any other jewelry stuff, do you like bracelets & cuffs? If you like them, then definitely you would like to learn the making of these accessories for creating wrist accessory for yourself or for gifting others too.. So let’s have a look at what I am sharing today!
While browsing around and checking the Anthropologie webpage, I saw a navy blue velvet cuff which was looking so pretty, that was wrapped with navy blue velvet. so I like that & thought to try. the other day when I open the Anthro’s page, that velvet cuff was replaced with this above two cuffs, that was may be sold so they place another cuff there. but I was inspired by that velvet cuff so I tried my version, its super easy & fun idea of making a cuff.
TP roll, Velvet Ribbon, Scissors, Glue, (Mod podge & hot glue) Antique sequins & embellishment.
Whenever any jewelry piece is broken or damaged by chance, I save that in my crafty closet for any craft idea. there are many rhinestones & bling accessory pieces are saved in one of my decoupaged box. I reuse them in my crafty activities mostly. So never throw your ordinary little broken jewelry specially, they can be useful again in other craft projects of yours or while working with kids crafts etc..
After making its cuff shape, then cover it with a thick coat of mod podge, and start wrapping the cuff with velvet ribbon which is about one inches wide. cover the card paper tube with velvet ribbon & when you will be reaching near edges then cover the space of tp roll with cuff totally.
Now Let it dry and then fix the big metal jewelry pieces first, then small sequins & all little thingies you want to embellish. I gather the stuff which is vintage & antiques inspired. so its contrast with dark red velvet seems well.
While working with hot glue gun, you must be careful. as it can be a kid craft too so kids must be careful. The strings of hot glue were sticking with velvet but you I try to manage well. its not easy to work with glue gun sometimes. Well if you are going to try this project with your kids, you must be careful as it can burn the soft skin of kids. it will be an easy & beautiful kid craft. a gift idea for the girls who want to share anything handmade with others.
I hope you liked the post. & if you want to buy anything handmade by Me.. drop me an email at kkcreativemind @ hotmail.com
Have a great day!
Keyring/Pendant Making With Dough(20)
A keyring is used by everyone of us and its an item which we hold in hand almost everyday..isn’t it? our car keys to our drawer’s..there is mostly hanging a boring/simple type chain with any ring..it doesn’t seem so good, specially when you have a tiny space of creativity in your big head..haha.. well here while talking about myself I must be telling you about one thing first..Sometimes my creative job feels serious too.. want to know how?ok lets see how! whenever I have something simple in my hand(like a simple keychain etc.), my family & friends taunt me in a fun way that I should be having my ordinary things in a more creative way..they all know me very well how lazy I am sometimes but see how they dont stop saying just to see something creative by Me..haha..so I laugh at their sweet taunt & words..and then it inspire & encourage me to try something creative with any of that simple thing..
So here today the keychain/keyring I am sharing is also a part of a story, once my keychain broke & I left the keys inside cupboard because I never lock my cupboard. when my friend saw that broken keychain, she ask me why not you make anything beautiful which will be looking more well at your cupboard lock place. So I thought I must be working on her suggestion now! see what I have done & how I have made this keychain which can also be used as a pendant.. lets see..
This keychain is made of homemade dough, once I make some big amount of dough, I made so many little crafty thingies with that. This key chain is also a part of my homemade dough creations.
If you will remember, once I made a pearl & clay pendant with this engraved stamp texture design.. there some dough was extra & I make the texture over it but didn’t create anything with that piece. It was saved in my crafty space from a few months. so I tried to create this keychain out of that little piece. and the fun thing is, it can also be used as a pendant..isn’t it..?
for making this clay/dough keychain, you will need to have some dough with the texture over it. then let it dry.
First I cut the hard/dried piece of dough with scissors, and make any shape you would like. make a hole for adding the jump ring. I did the hole with a nail screwier slim tip.then seal it with mod podge & when it will get dry, add the jump ring with the key chain.
Here in the above image you can see the two options, Chain & Keyring both. its up top you how you create & what you create. a Keychain or a pendant. And the mod podge sealer is for sealing the piece. and glitter glue is for some shine.
Make an outline with glitter glue. I use green, golden & red color glitter glue for making it more bling-ful.. and the turquoise rhinestone is for fixing in the middle. I use UHU adhesive glue for pasting. u can also use mod podge or any other transparent glue.
And the key chain is done! let it dry totally & fix your keys in the dough keyring.. a handmade keyring.. isn’t it fine? I think it would be a perfect gift as well, so this kind of handmade keyring will remind your friend about you whenever they will be holding & seeing the keyring at their place.
I remember once when I was in grade 4, we made a flower ornament in our craft class. our teacher was having a simple keyring of her class table drawer. we class fellows decided to use it there. we attach that with our teacher’s keys..when she came in class she was looking at her keys(in fact searching) but when she saw that was with a ribbon ornament keyring, she became very happy! my teacher was super sweet.. Mrs. Zulaikha Yousaf.. how pretty & wonderful She was.. May Allah Almighty bless her with lots of blessings!
This is an easy idea of kids crafts or gift item. You can also gift these kind of little gifts to your family and friends, so whenever they will be seeing your handmade love.. they will definitely be appreciating your handmade stuff. so keep creating & keep giving these kind of easy gifts to your loved ones. sometimes less is always More..
Another dough keyring by me from archives ..You can get the recipe of thie homemade dough HERE. and in chance if your dough get failed, you can try this paper weight idea.. haha..hope you would like it. you can check my all the clay/dough creations HERE

Every year during the month of December, I like sharing a detailed post with my readers about website review/recap, in which I write about my top rated creations & tutorials of the year… Another year is about to End now,,And I am going to share another review post with you all.. This year was a busy year for me & I wasn’t able to share that loads of fun as I have shared during past years! Lets see what you have enjoyed at my page & what you have missed.. so have a look again..
During April I found some problem in my camera, that wasn’t working well, so there were just ONE tutorial in the month.. I were having some giveaway posts & other stuff, but the sharing by me was not much!
During July I create less because it was Holy month of Ramadan, I were busy in my religious duties So I skip working on blog.
October was the month of pink..because of breast cancer awareness month. So I were sharing some Pink creations..
I usually share 4 tutorials every month with some random posts.. and sometimes giveaways or sponsors spotlight too.. the year 2013 was fun but life was more busy than before & in fact I were more lazy.. haha.. blogging is fun! the best way to utilize your skills & sharing fun with others. This year I got more new awesome followers & bloggers.. my all people are so nice, I am so thankful to World Wide Web for this opportunity so I have some amazing & creative people from all over the world.. You all are valued a lot.. stay blessed & be there with me during my blogging journey in coming years too.. I like reading your blogs & all fun!!
Here you can see my previous years recaps & reviews about my creativity..Have a look..
Wish me Luck for 2014, so there will be more awesomeness & fun! Wish you a Happy new Year in advance!!
PaperWeight Making From Trash To Treasure(12)
As you know I am always fond of recycling & reusing extra/used stuff, So here Today again I will be sharing reuse of a totally trashed thing! I love this colorful piece of art by me after so long..hehe..seriously..well do you have any guess about what is this colorful thing made of?? you may read the caption of the image so no more mystery here..
Actually once upon a time I made some Homemade Dough for crafts & jewelry type things, and I made a few things too but later I totally forgot that I still have it saved in my crafty closet… When I saw the tight jar in which it was saved I said to myself “oh yeah its something important inside” BUT when I pick it up, it was dry & in a lump shape.. totally trash!! But I thought why not to create something with this trash.. so at the same time a light bulb blinks in the Khadija’s Creative Mind & it started working on….!! have a look what was the colorful/useful thing I have done with a trash dry dough..
Let’s see what to do if the dough gets dry or the making of dough failed for any reason.. So now you will not be throwing your failed dough lump outside.. wait until it dries & then start working on by making this colorful Paper weight.. its super easy & so fun! best for kids crafts..and not bad for gifting others..
Now check the easiest How-To reuse the dry dough/ failed dough. All you need to have for this fun idea is just a few markers & a paper cutter. you can also use scissors too for giving it a cracks/mosaic/abstract look.( Mod podge is optional)
First I torn the plastic bag in which the dough lump was fixed. Then I take the paper cutter with a slim nib & started making abstract designs & lines with the cutter. and then I picked up some sharp colors of brush markers/markers.
The cracks look was so fun, So I tried to enhance it by using black color marker, First I cover the cuts with black marker line & it looks like a web over the lump..isn’t it? wait a moment so the marker color will get dry..
You can check the recipe of this handmade dough HERE & see all the crafts I have done with this recipe HERE. I hope you will be Enjoying my all ideas & Tutorials related to dough crafts..
Have a colorful day everyone!
