Guest Designer - Snehal Watwe Welde

Hello creative friends,

Kripa here with our Special Guest of the month. She is a regular participant in our challenges and has tried her hand at many forms of art. Over to Snehal Watwe Welde to tell us a little more about herself and also share a tutorial.

I am from Pune and I’ve lived all over the country and outside because I am married to a chopper pilot serving in the Indian air Force.I am a hotel management graduate and have been crafting ever since I can remember...though different forms of art. I discovered paper crafting 2007 when I was at home after my second one was born. Since then, there has been no looking back. I started with making things for Defence ladies commitments and then extended it to gifting personalised gifts to friends and family.As far as my crafting style is concerned, I don’t think I have a particular style, or even if I do, I don’t know what it’s called  :P. You can figure it out yourself. I blog at 

My project is a gift for my daughter’s teacher - I have recycled an old Mithai box to hold some essential supplies for her.

I will try through pictures to give a step by step procedure of making the box. First I took a Teal card stock and stamped it with wood grain stamp, distressed it and used mists on it.

Then measured the box and cut the paper into strips to glue on the top and sides of the box. 

Rest is simple - embellish the top of the box. I've altered some clips for the teacher to organize her stuff.

Hope I inspire you to create something for this challenge.

What a clever up cycling idea! So, friends, have you linked up your project yet to Challenge #37 - all you have to do is use background stamps + mists (Read more here) and you could be in the running to win Rs.500/- voucher!
