    Hello Madhu
    Thanks for peeping in........... It's all your FB with gives me encouragement for doing so. Fun don't ask I just enjoy doing them these are more attractive ones acutally there are many more like tea bag folding, irish folding, but they have they own beauty in them. Now my friend with whom I use to enjoying doing them have joined here if you will see her collection wow they are marvellous. Only thing is, she is a working lady and doesn't get much time but still she does them which has to be appreciated. You will see her variety of cards in few days.

    Sorry Uma for the delay these are quilling paper these are thicker ones I still cut them in half and use them.
    The other one is the cutting board and the paper cutter.. Cutting board you get different size and shapes I have this rectangle one.
    But for these stuff you need a bit practice. onces your hand comes on it then you can create anything.

    Hello Bhuvana
    That was really a wonderful one for the first attempt.
    Instead of using a thicker thread use fine one like anchor thread you get to do emboridery work just take one string so it will look more delicate.
    One more tip for you draw the picture on another paper and mark the points where you have to put holes and keep the paper on the card and prick them so that only the holes will be visible on the card not the markings.
    and the backstitch used is fine will give you one more type when you pass the needle from one hole leave the next hole and pass through the 3rd hole and remove out from the 2nd hole, then put in the 4th and remove from 3rd here you will get a straight line. This way you can use for the outline of the bird. For the branch that backstitch is fine.
    You need to ask anything feel free.
