    Re: Three C - chocolate cup craft

    PROCEDURE (along with pictures)- very simple

    The secret weapon that i have used to make the chocolate cup is the BALLOON.

    1. Melt chocolate bars in double boiler over hot water.

    2. Cool this chocolate syrup for 3-5 minutes.

    3. Inflate a balloon(always wash and dry the balloon before use) and tie it.

    4. Hold the balloon and dip partway into melted chocolate.

    5. Place the chocolate coated balloon in freezer until solid.

    6. Then untie the balloon(dont pop it) to release the air from the balloon.Remove the air very slowly so that the chocolate cup does not break.

    7. Peel the deflated balloon from the cup and keep it in freezer until ready to serve.

    8. Serve with Icecream and toppings like whipped cream,gems,nuts,choco chips and fresh red raspberries as your heart desires.

    Re: Rakhi done with woolen thread

    Thank you Latha, I learnt how to make the flowers on You tube.

    For the Band I just used 6 strands of woolen thread and tied them just how we plait our hair....... It is easy......We get the Loom for just 10 rs in the market. and you can make them if you have left over wool at home.Try them GOOD LUCK..:thumbsup....Harina

    Dear swaran

    I appreciate you for trying it.

    Dont use the cooker.
    Fill the saucepan with 1 inch of water in the bottom and boil it.
    Chop the chocolate bars into pieces and place it in a stainless steel bowl and set the bowl on top of the saucepan with the boiling water.keep it in low heat and melt the chocolate slowly and keep stirring it.

    here is the picture:

    [​IMG]


    keep the melted chocolate outside for few minutes so that it cools down.
    Then dip the balloon in the melted chocolate.give atleast 3-4 layers for coating.

    remove the chocolate cup from the fridge only when it is hard.

    I hope the procedure is clear .

    "Jadai Alangaram" with step by step photos and procedure....

    Dear Everyone,

    As usual there is a short story behind all my crafts !!

    I made this Jadai Alangaram for my SIL for her
    Ambal Mugam. She is behind me since last year and finally I accomplished making this for her for her golu. This is a surprise for her as I have not discussed this with her as yet.

    I have taken step by step photos for those who want to attempt this.

    Materials required: Small Bangle, Woollen thread, Zari lace, Kundan Stones, Zari ribbons, Beads, Black Cloth, Needle, Thread, Readymade Rakkodi(optional), Fevicol.

    Method: First wrap the bangle using the woolen thread and from one corner make a braid to the length required. Then wrap the circle with zari lace.

    I made the kunjalam (parandhi) with 3 big beads. The pictures will help you the step by step of making it. I first cut 3 small circles of the black cloth. Then I did running stitches leaving little space on the edge. In a circular form. I then kept the bead inside the circle and pulled the thread (see picture) and then tied the bead. The same way I did for all the 3 beads and then joined them all and covered the stitches with some colourful and gold beads. I then fixed this to the braid with few stitches nicely and tightly. After this fixed some kundan stones here and there on the braid and also with some thin lace.

    With the help of zari ribbons I made something like a flower to adorn the back of the circular bangle (just like a halo). In the front I fixed a readymade “Rakkodi” that I had and some artificial flowers (readymade) (see picture) with the help of fevicol.
