Handmade engagement ring tray

Hello friends,

Here is one more item that was crafted for my engagement. The engagement ring tray itself!!
We browsed the markets in Mumbai to find a decent tray. But either we didnt like the designs or they were just way to expensive!!!! Hence came up with making a tray at home itslef!! Due to crunch of time, was not able to click pics when the making was in progress, but have the final shots!!

Hearts... is what our theme has been. Even our invite was full of hearts!! :)  The entire border was made out of scraps. Thick magazine pages cut out in small size and rounded them up. Stuck blue ribbon over it. The green roses are from local shop. Red paper is velvet paper.

This is the top view of the tray. The 2 small boxes were made for the ring. They are thermocal  boxes covered with velvet paper. Put a small slit in it for the ring

here is the entire completed tray, with the pic of the bride and groom :)  The photographer loved the tray and did a photoshoot of it :) And my in laws loved it as well!!

Do let me know how you liked it!!

Easel Cake Card : Engagement

Hello friends,

A midst the engagement preparations, I hardly found much time to craft, leave alone blogging. But after the engagement mania has settled down, I will share a few items that I made as part of engagement gifts!

Since a few days, I have been toying around with the idea of making a easel cake card. Easel cards are my favourite!! Easy to make and the give your card a fab look. But the cake part i felt a little challenging!

I wanted to gift my fiance something new and out of box, so came up with experimenting a easel cake card. To my surprise, the card mechanism ended up being extremely simple. But the toughest part was colour combinations :) Try as i might, the crafter in me wouldn't rest until I felt the overall look and feel JUST RIGHT!!! Completed the card in one evening, but i literally crafted till the break of dawn! :)

The card when opened and kept upfront

A closer look at the couple pic.  absolutely loved this stamp and enjoyed colouring it!!

The cake adorned with pearls! and flower

Have added handmade fabric roses here. My fiance loved the card and I felt extremely happy seeing his happiness.

Please do let me know how my experiment has turned out to be! Your comments meant alot!!
