Dressing table organizer/ DIY /cardboard craft~ from my craft’s corner

Hey you creative people. Its been long that we have talked about something creative and fun as well. So here I am today sharing one easy(read lengthy) DIY with you all. So hello everyone from Riya’ craft’s corner 🙂

Last time I posted a cereal box turned desktop organizer DIY I got so much of love from you all,I decided to do a bigger project but on a minimal budget again.

I had my dressing table all messed up with bottles and tubes lying everywhere on a tray making it dirty and messy. So yesterday I made one “cardboard desktop organizer” which will keep all my stuff at places and organized and at the same time it will give my dressing area a beautiful look too so that we can get ready beautifully every morning 🙂

Before we start, let me tell you that it took me the whole day (with lunch, dinner, leisure breaks ofcourse) to complete this project. So lets get started.

I have these cardboard boxes from online shopping lying around in my store room. So i cut off one of them this time.

I just used the cardboard flaps. Those were enough for this organizer.

Step 1 –

Materials required :-

  1. Cardboard pieces (like ofcourse 😉 )
  2. Covering coloured paper (I used this cute Christmas theme green and white wrapping paper)
  3. Ruler
  4. Paper cutter/knife
  5. Glue gun and glue sticks
  6. Liquid glue
  7. Pair of scissors
  8. A paint brush (for evenly distributing the glue over cardboard for pasting paper)
  9. Decorative washy tape rolls
  10. Decorative fabric lace and plastic flowers (from school craft supplies :D)

PS- Ignore the quilling stips in the above picture, I didnt use them :/

Step 2-

Cutting the cardboard pieces into desired dimensions.

I am keeping the 5 pieces of drawer separately till I use them to not get mixed with the rest.

Tell me if the image is not clear. I will upload the dimensions seperately.

Step 3-

Wrapping the pieces. Wrap the pieces with wrapping paper from both the sides using liquid glue. Use the technique that suits you best.

Believe me guys(girls :)), this is the lengthiest step. You need to have patience if you are doing it alone like I did 😦 though after you finish, they look so cute 🙂

Step 4 –

Start joining the parts to make the base using hot glue gun.

PS – be extra cautious while using hot glue if you are not habituated yet. I burnt myself a little 😦

Here my drawer and the base model is ready.

Step 5-

Making the knob for the drawer.

I have taken 2 plastic flowers of blue and green colour and glued them together.

Then attach it to the drawer front again using hot glue gun.

Step 6-

Gluing and attaching the other partitions carefully.

Bulkhead is the one on the right up. You need to slide it over the drawer section. And the 5*11 is the small one above it placed horizontally.

Step 7-

Decorate the front parts with fabric laces. And give a finishing touch by sticking washy tapes at the back edges of the frame to make it more durable and look clean.

And your brand new handmade table organizer is ready to be used. 😀

Step 6-

Place it on your dressing table and put all your stuff systematically as you like.

One set

Another set

You can use the drawer to keep your hair accessories, bracelets or whatever you want to.

Isn’t it cute and neat?

So this is it for today’s activity peeps. Hope you all liked my today’s DIY project. And if you like it, you surely going to make one for yourself. And if you do, don’t forget to share with me on my facebook page.

Also don’t forget to leave your feedback in the comment below:)

Until next time.

Much love

Diwali 2017

I know it’s been two weeks since Diwali but finally I get to sit with my blog just now. And I am so happy and in peace. So lets get started.

———————————————————–

This year, we went to Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh to celebrate Diwali with our sweetest family. So lets start with my family that I got after marrying my husband 🙂

Without family, celebration is not celebration.

Hence its the festival of lights, diyas, rangolis and night, I got ample of opportunities to try out different combinations of manual settings. On the Diwali eve, I played with the depth-of-field a bit.

Though it’s not perfect 😦

#Bokeh

Light in night.

Be the unique you.

These were the ones I had to satisfy myself this time. Now let’s move on to the Diwali night. *Diyas* rangolis *and ofcourse*click click*

We made this rangoli at mom’s mandir.

T-light candles on quilled candle holder made by my SIL. I loved how it turned out as a center table decor.

Now allow me to introduce my model, my rangoli and craft partner (whenever we meet), miss fun, my sweet sister-in-law.

.

Finally a day Pic. 😀

Completed rangoli using candles and bangles 🙂

When we both were in home, we had to have a photoshoot with fairy lights. Loved playing with it. || High brightness recommended for better view ||

*Enjoy * and give me feedback. It will help me to improve.No headband, no issues 🙂

Follow your light, and see yourself shining:)

If you have to, get lost in yourself 🙂

Smile and the world smiles with you.

* Hazy but cute *

This was it for today. Hope you liked it. Don’t forget to share your lovely thoughts. Once again belated

Much love
