Finally everything has settled down.....everything is again calm.... the chaos is over (atleast for the time being).... and I can finally go back to living my life as I want.... and do what I want and love....
I have done some crafting in the past few weeks and have a lot to share.... I have so much pending things to take care of.... In the next few days I will share some projects I was working on....
First a good news.... I got a new Paper Shredder...... YAY ^___^
I used to cut most of my paper strips for quilling with a paper trimmer.... which was soooooooooooooo time consuming..... and tiring... Few days back I went shopping for my craft supplies and found a mini paper shredder... :)
I was so happy and excited that when I got home I started shredding paper and making quilling strips of beautiful and yummy colours.... :) it was so much fun... I can make hundreds of strips in a matter of few minutes....and all the strips are even (3mm).. I don't have to waste time measuring, marking and then cutting each and every strip of paper... and I can now devote all that extra time I saved to crafting... ^__^ However the edges of the strips are a little rough but I don't have a problem with that... :)
So, here are some of the Bookmarks I made with Shredded paper strips (first 5 photographs)... :) After I made the bookmarks I applied a coat of clear gloss varnish to hold their shape... give them some strength and to make them waterproof.
Supplies Used :
Jumbo Paper Clips
Hot Glue Gun
