Cross Stitched Gift Box

Posted on 16 April 2012 | Comments Off

Do It Yourself Cross Stitched ContainerCross-stitching is a celebrated and accepted style of decorative embroidery.

A cross stitched pattern will typically have numerous stitches in a cross shaped pattern.

The combination of the patterns come together to form the image or design.

The two most popular forms of cross-stitch embroidery are counted cross stitching and stamped cross stitching.

Each form has a variety of options and patterns available.

Cross stitch is fun and easy to learn! It requires only a few supplies:

  • Graph. This is the pattern or design you chose to stitch. There are thousands of free patterns available on the net to choose from.
  • Needle.
  • Floss. Embroidery floss is a cotton thread used for stitching.
  • Embroidery hoop. A plastic embroidery hoop is helpful to hold the fabric while you stitch.
  • Scissors.

Round Easter Box

Round Egg Gift Box With Easter Bunny

Adorable Easter Gifts

HAPPY EASTER!

The Easter Bunny is perhaps the biggest commercial symbol of Easter. Though bunnies, eggs, Easter gifts and fluffy, yellow chicks in gardening hats all stem from pagan roots.

They were incorporated into the celebration of Easter separately from the Christian tradition of honoring the day Jesus Christ rose from the dead.

According to legend, the Easter Bunny (or Easter Rabbit) brings children baskets of brightly coloured eggs, chocolate, toys and games on the eve of Easter Sunday.

Have you got any? :-)

Some sources say that the Easter bunny first arrived in America in the 1700s with German immigrants who settled in Pennsylvania and transported their tradition of an egg-laying hare called “Osterhase” or “Oschter Haws.” Their children made nests in which this creature could lay its colored eggs.

A Round Easter Box is a great gift box for your brother, sister, best friend

Yellow Chick Easter Basket Gift Idea

Adorable Easter Gifts

Giving a chick or an egg at Easter is a tradition that has its roots in distant history.

Eggs are widely recognized as symbols of new life, and are used in various spiritual traditions – as symbols, they are most familiar to most of us in Western culture as Easter decorations and treats. Eggs, chicks, and chickens are as prevalent as the bunny at Easter.

In Greece, children and adults alike play an egg cracking game called tsougrisma on Easter. Players attempt to crack their boiled eggs against their friend’s egg; the last person with an un-cracked egg is considered the lucky one. :-)

The Greeks traditionally dye their eggs red, symbolizing the blood and passion of Christ.

The most popular treat to hide inside an Easter egg is jellybeans. Americans consume more than 16 billion of them at Easter – enough to circle the circumference of the globe three times!

A Chicken Easter Basket is an excellent gift idea for anyone in your family: for grandchildren, grandparents, son, daughter

All you need is tread, scissors and some colorful felt. For the design see inspiration over here:

Flower Gift Box

Posted on 7 March 2012 | Comments Off

Flower Gift Box For International Women's DayInternational Women’s Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day, is marked on March 8 every year.

In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political and social achievements.

Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily Eastern Europe, Russia, and the former Soviet bloc.

In many regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother’s Day and St Valentine’s Day.

Daisy Gift Box

Posted on 5 March 2012 | Comments Off

Daisy Flower Gift Box To Fill With MessagesWhen you pick a daisy, you are actually picking hundreds of flowers at the same time.

That’s because daisies have evolved a special trick to attract more pollinators, which is to hide a whole field of flowers in the head of what seems to be a single bloom.

All the plants in the daisy family use the same trick – by clustering together many tiny flowers they produce a structure that looks just like a single big flower.

The daisies that grow in our lawns contain two different types of flowers – central radially symmetrical yellow ones, and an outer ring of bilaterally symmetrical white ones with a massively elongated petal structure.

You may not know this, but daisies are also edible. They have a mild flavor and can be added to soups, salads and other dishes. They’re closely related to artichoke and are high in Vitamin C.

Make a pretty Daisy Gift Box with the help of Mel Stampz’s blog:

Hot Air Balloon Box

Hot Air Balloon Best Gift Ideas For HimDid you know that…

The hot air balloon is the oldest successful human-carrying flight technology. It is in a class of aircraft known as balloon aircraft.

On November 21, 1783, in Paris, France, the first untethered manned flight was made by Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier and François Laurent d’Arlandes in a hot air balloon created on December 14, 1782 by the Montgolfier brothers.

Hot air balloons that can be propelled through the air rather than just being pushed along by the wind are known as airships or, more specifically, thermal airships.

Gift Box For Birthday

Posted on 18 February 2012 | Comments Off

Best Birthday Gift IdeasHistory of Birthday observance can be traced back before the rise of Christianity.

In pagan culture it was believed evil spirits visited people on their birthdays.

To protect the person having birthday from the evil effect, people used to surround him and make merry. A lot of noise used to be created in such parties to scare away the evil spirits.

In those times there was no tradition of bringing gifts and guests attending the birthday party would bring good wishes for the birthday person.

However, if a guest did bring gifts it was considered to be a good sign for the person of honor.

If you wish to make a present for your mom, sister, grandma or anyone else in the family, see this

Birthday Gift Idea Chocolate Cake Gift BoxHAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! :-)

Eating chocolate cake as part of a full breakfast can help you lose weight, say scientists. :-)

It sounds too good to be true but new research says having dessert – along with the traditional fry up – burns off the pounds.

Morning is the best time to consume sweets because that’s when the body’s metabolism is most active – and we have the rest of the day to work off the calories, a new study shows.

A homemade felt chocolate cake for sure will not make you or the beneficiary gain any extra pounds, yet it is a gorgeous birthday gift!

All you need are needle, threads, scissors, foams and adhesive. See Anncoo’s work here:

Felt Chocolate Cake

Actually it is an excellent gift box to fill with

Anyone in the family would be delighted to receive this nice birthday gift, present it to your mom, your dad, your sister, your brother, your grandma, your grandchild
