Recycled Jeans with Handmade Flowers

 Handbags made from old jeans pants....don't they look funky and cool . I added the handmade flowers to give more girly and trendy look. Mansi from Diecuts & more showed me how to make the flowers which are on the first bag through Skype chat (awesome idea). I attached them to a safety pin so that the flowers can be removed from the bag whenever needed. I covered the entire flower with matte decoupage so that it will not get squeezed up. 
Homemade handbags ready!!!!!

These were made from different style jean one with a straight pocket . Plaited strips of jeans for the handle. Added some flowers to hide the button.

 This bag was made from my daughters jeans, she loves it.

Primary Colors Card and Rubberband Bracelet

I started making this card for PTT Color/Picture challenge. I wanted to use only the primary colors for this project so I found 2 different pattern sheets. I tried to keep it very simple just focussing the colors. Hand cut the star from the pattern paper and cardstock attached it with the brad.....added the sentiment with a safety pin.
Rubberband bracelet, I saw this on the youtube. They made it with the rainbow loom...I don't have that tool but I used the same technique to make this kids loved it and they also made more for their friends.

I like to enter this card for the following challenges

One Stroke Painting

One Stroke Painting was started by Donna Dewberry, its a decorative painting.With one stroke painting you can easily learn to "Shade and Highlight"all in one stroke. I learnt one stroke painting through books and videos (let me tell you I'm not an artist).Once I mastered the different strokes it was easy to complete the pictures.
