DIY Tutorial: Flower arrangment for wedding gifts

>> Wednesday, 13 May 2015

Artificial flowers arrangement to decorate wearable gifts (hantaran).

In many culture, gifts are being presented during wedding ceremonies. In our traditional wedding practice, wedding gifts(hantaran) are "culturally mandated" to be presented by both brides and grooms either during the wedding or their engagement ceremonies. Although religious wise, is not a mandatory, the inheritance of this cultural practice are widely executed until now. To learn more about our cultural wedding ceremony, click here.

I had my own wedding about a year ago, and I have presented to now-my-husband, a total of nine gifts - few wearable items, food and cultural items. To make them presentable, I had decorated all of them on my own, using combinations of different types of artificial flowers. Apart from making them looked beautiful, I have ensured that they are earth-friendly, which means are recycle-able. The same flower arrangements are not to be thrown away (like many did) but instead, can be transformed into decorative flowers for your dinner table or display cabinets - of course, the easy way. 

I have composed the A-Z of how to do this here (please click) and hope all of the photos displayed, will guide you through the process till the end (since the write-up is not available in English)

Painted fabric Flower, painted leaves and painted vase. Brilliant designer.

This is a DIY of fabric flowers for display. Take any artificial flowers of choice and assemble. Take any fabric, trace and "starch" them. Reassemble the whole pieces and it is ready.

Or, interestingly, you can paint them too. The petal, the leaves, up to your creativity. This one is my favorite, looks like a bunch of Hydrangea at first glance. Oh and the middle - buttons, artificial stamens - will do any.

DIY - Two Tone Folded Roses Flowery Bow

>> Friday, 17 October 2014

So you bought a little gift or present for a friend or relative, daughter or a little sister. You have wrapped it nicely, perhaps it is not too expensive but if you can tun it into a presentable present like this, it will look expensive and nice :)

You need two DIYs here: a two-tones folded ribbon and a flowery bow. The only supplies you need -ribbons, craft glue and a scissor.

As the name implies, the folded roses will use the fold and twist techniques. And to make the flowery bows is really simple - you need to cut ribbons into different sizes, then glue them. Then glue the pretty two toned folded roses in the middle, and you aree done
