Sunflower Summer Gift Box

Posted on 24 July 2012 | Comments Off

Stunning DIY Sunflower Gift Box Made Using ClayDid you know that…

The default direction of the sunflower head is to point east towards sunrise (the location of the sun when it rises over the horizon in the morning.)

During the day motor cells in the sunflower stem tilt the flower bud to try to receive a maximum amount of sunlight. By evening, the sunflower head is pointing west, towards sunset (the location of the sun on the horizon just before it is no longer visible.)

This causes the sunflower to basically trace a 180 degree arc, tracking the sun’s position throughout the day, from horizon to horizon, sunrise to sunset.

Overnight, the sunflower will reset to its original eastward positioning and wait for the morning, ready to follow the sun’s path once again.

Once blooming however, sunflowers no longer exhibit heliotropic behaviour, and the stem is generally frozen into an eastward-facing position.

Make summer last forever with a pretty Sunflower Gift Box made using FIMO soft modelling clay.

Mom’s Keepsake Box

Posted on 20 July 2012 | Comments Off

Mom's Keepsake Box As Parents' Day Gift Idea DIYParents’ Day (fourth Sunday in July) is significant because it honors parents everywhere who are vital to the developments of future generations.

This day has been celebrated to show our honor and express gratitude to the two most important people of our lives.

This special day is a tribute to the efforts of parents and encourages everyone to show appreciation for their own parents.

In 1994, the U.S. Congress unanimously passed a bill to create a national observance for parents.

On October 14 of that year, President Bill Clinton signed the bill into law, thereby establishing National Parents’ Day.

Parent’s Day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday in July each year. On 2012,  this special day will be celebrated on 22nd July according to Gregorian Calendar.

Whatever be the occasion, Mother’s day, Father’s Day or Parents’ Day, we try to convey our love and regards to our parents with some special gifts.

You could make a handmade keepsake box for your mom, and insert

3D Flip Flop Gift Box

Posted on 5 July 2012 | Comments Off

3D Flip Flop Homemade Gift Box Project For Seasonal Summer OccasionsFor many Americans this summer, the next best thing to sinking one’s toes into the sand is sliding them between the straps of a pair of flip-flops.

Flips-flops are being seen everywhere this summer, from city sidewalks to the fashion runway.

History buffs take note: the flip-flop is one of the first types of footwear known to man. The pharaohs wore them.

So did the ancient Indians, Assyrians, Romans, Greeks and Japanese.

Only in the 20th century, with the cheap mass production of rubber, did flip-flops really become the world’s favorite shoe, if only because people couldn’t afford anything else.

If you are looking for seasonal summer gift suggestions, here is a great idea.

Piece Of Cake Gift Box

Posted on 21 May 2012 | Comments Off

Easy To Make Piece Of Cake Birthday Gift Box“THAT’S A PIECE OF CAKE” = Something that can be done easily and pleasurably.

The light-verse writer Ogden Nash had this line in ‘Primrose Path’ : ’Her picture’s in the papers now, and life’s a piece of cake.’

The thought surely derives from the fact that for most people eating a piece of cake is easy and a pleasure. :-)

‘As easy as pie’ is an American expression. Back in the 1890s ‘pie’ was a common slang meaning anything easy, a cinch; the expression easy as pie stemmed quite readily from that.

I’m still wondering about those phrases…

A piece of cake is easy to cut, but not so easy to make.

And what’s so easy about pie? Have you ever made one? Did you also make the crust? I know there has to be SOMETHING easy about pie…

Oh, forget it. Let’s make a Piece Of Cake Gift Box instead. :-)

Little Cute Japanese Kawaii Animal Bags Do It YourselfSpread some kawaii joy around with these adorable animal bags!

Excellent gift idea, guaranteed to put a smile to anyone’s face!

What is “kawaii”? Kawaii is the quality of cuteness in the context of Japanese culture.

It has become a prominent aspect of Japanese culture, entertainment, clothing, food, toys, personal appearance, behavior, and mannerisms.

Popular cute characters in Japan: Hello Kitty, Tarepanda, Felix the cat, Mickey Mouse, Winnie-the-Pooh, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit…

The word “kawaii” is pronounced similarly to the name of the Hawaiian island of Kauai and the word is also spelled like “Hawaii” with a “k” in place of the “h.” As a matter of fact, kawaii has become very popular in Hawaii which is where many Japanese immigrants live and also where a lot of Japanese tourists visit on vacation.

Cute Puppy Gift Box

Posted on 17 May 2012 | Comments Off

Cute Gift Idea To Make For Dog LoversThe bond you have with your puppy begins the moment he comes into your life and never stops growing.

You can nurture this bond though affection, training, grooming, playtime, general exercise and participation in various activities.

Puppies are highly social animals and spend most of their waking hours interacting with either their mother or littermates.

Many dog owners do believe that that their adorable little puppies can laugh, although the experts tend to argue about whether or not canines actually have the physical capacity to display happiness in this particular manner.

Dogs may “laugh” by breathing a certain way and making certain noises, and they may also appear to smile while they’re “laughing”. :-)

A Cute Puppy Gift Box is a nice gift idea for any dog lovers and fun to make. See here how Rebecca Ednie has made one:

Round Retro Container

Round Polka Dotted Container For GirlfriendSpot on! Get the retro feel with polka dots this summer! :-)

An early recorded use of the term “polka dot” is in 1854 in The Yale literary magazine.

The pattern is named for the dance of the same name, making one suspect there is a connection linking the pattern to the dance.

Instead, the name was settled upon merely because of the dance’s popularity at the time the pattern became fashionable. Many other products and fashions of the era also adopted the polka name.

Make a polka dotted Round Retro Container as a gift for your daughter, mother, best friend. You can be sure that any woman will love it.

Cupcake Birthday Box

Perfect Printable Birthday Box With Cupcake Prints On ItDid you know that…

In the beginning, cupcakes were sometimes called “number” cakes, because they were easy to remember by the measurements of ingredients it took to create them:

One cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour, four eggs, one cup of milk, and one spoonful of soda.

Clearly, cupcakes today have expaned to a wide variety of ingredients, measurements, shapes, and decorations – but this was one of the first recipes for making what we know today as cupcakes.

Make a delicious cupcake for a birthday to celebrate, and a pretty Cupcake Box along with it.

May Day Basket

Happy May Day Basket Homemade For TreatsHappy May Day! :-)

On May 1 is an ancient northern hemisphere spring festival and usually a public holiday; it is also a traditional spring holiday in many cultures.

May Day marks the end of the unfarmable winter half of the year in the Northern hemisphere, and it has traditionally been an occasion for popular and often raucous celebrations.

The earliest May Day celebrations appeared in pre-Christian times, with the festival of Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers.

May Day was also celebrated by some early European settlers of the American continent.

In some parts of the United States, May Baskets are made. These are small baskets usually filled with flowers or treats and left at someone’s doorstep. The giver would ring the bell and run away. The person receiving the basket would try to catch the fleeing giver. If they caught the person, a kiss was to be exchanged.

Printable Cat Gift Box

Posted on 29 April 2012 | Comments Off

Cute Printable Gift Boxes Cat Template For Cat LoversDid you know that…

The cat was seen as a sacred animial in ancient Eqypt, and the history of domestic cats dates back to as early as 8000 years. Ancient Egyptians shaved their eyebrows in mourning when their cats died. And if someone killed a cat, he or she could get the death penalty.

Cats are some of the smartest animals and can interpret a human’s mood and feelings.

You might think it’s disgusting when your cat brings you dead prey (like a bird or mouse), but you should thank her anyway. She thinks that she’s bringing you a present. Our cats don’t think of themselves as small humans. Rather, they think of us as large cats. :-)

A sweet Cat Box is a nice present for any cat lovers. It is very simple to create, just check out the printable template over here:
