Paper Dahlia

A small card with paper dahlia !

When I read about paper flower challenge I was not sure about which flower to try .My garden gave me the answer have a look ...

This is dahlia flower.I thought why not try this one ? Its quite big..has 5-6 layers of petal.I made small paper dahlia with 3 layers of petals and tried to make the leaves as real as possible.Paper dahlia turned out good but its no where near the real one !

Punched polka dots !

A card with punched polka Dots and Fringed flowers .

 Punched green polka dots are used for background .Being a gr8 supporter of reusing, how could i throw away the  green punched paper strips so used them at base.The green strip is not cut evenly it looked nice as it is so kept it like that . I love  green and blue combination and had some blue fringed flowers made earlier.Flowers were made from 1 inch strips.3 strips of shades of blue and 1 white strip for  center.The sentiment is hand written.That's it !

Pyramid shaped Box

This pyramid Shaped gift box is made out of thin cardboard sheets which come as packing with shirts. It is decorated with combination of paper cutting(borders), warli art and paper quilling.                             
I have quilled four different figures on  sides of the box.

To continue with tribal touch a jute thread and beads were added which tie the sides of box together.when opened it looks like this.

It has enough space to keep small gifts. (I gifted a friend bangles in similar box.) 
I am entering this box for  Snehal's challenge (make any kind of box).
