the flower pots

I got an order from an old friend requesting 2 flower pots for his friend.

So I was kinda nervous at start because I did this way back before so I was forgot. I use my previous picture as reference and wallah there you go!

before assembled.

After assembled. So cute!

The real size. See how tiny it is! It's only about 2".

I also made a plactic see through boxes for those 2 tiny pots so when I wanted to handover to my friend, the pots will stay intact and in shape. I hope he will love them! And I hope his friend won't forget to water it so it will bloom beautifully :P

I enjoyed making this, because of the 3D effect. It's super cute. How I wish someone would give me this as present, but it will sounds really funny so no flower pot as gift for me eh?

word puzzle project - part 2

I managed to finish the project. It's a simple project so it wont take time too long. It's just me who is popular with the label : LAZY. Hehehe

But I didnt touch up the right side of the board coz I wanted to write the words in the puzzle and the names and also the date it's completely perfectly finished. But it was satisfying once I hold it up on the wall. I wanted to send for framing so, once its completely framed I will post the perfect photo here :)

Ok, now I can proceed with zFi project and KL view project!!

p/s : My sister suggested I add some background to this, I will see what I can do about it. Hmmm....

word puzzle project - part 1

I came across this idea of using a word puzzle and add some quilling on it. No, it's not the ordinary heavily quilling. It's just the simplest one.

I went to Jusco the other day accompanying my sister coz she wanted to get something for herself and ended up with nothing. Haha. But for me, I got to hold this big giant cardboard I got for myself for this project entirely. I also bought a marker pen and a pair of glue with sharper nozzle.

Once I reached home, I got so excited to start this project :D

But it's tiring to do all this work on the floor due to unorganized workstation. Hehe.

Making lines to cut the remaining.

I dotted to make straight lines.


See, the word puzzle?
Can you even see the hidden words?

I only managed to make 3 letters, I, A & H today.

Yeah, it's tiring to work on the floor. Arghhh!!! And my leg got numb from the bending over.

I got another 8 letters to work with. I want this to be in my wedding picture that's why I want to keep it simple. 

It's just a simple quilling. 

But it means a lot to me.

Will update once finished :)

amazed by the maze

I dont know why I came up with the idea of mazing up using quilling strips.

It's not something that I can be bragged about coz its just lame. But I like it! :D

I tried it on a small card with thinner strips. So it ended up like bullshit. It's like a 5-year-old quilling card *I think a 5-year-old kid quilled card is even better, haha*. Huh. I know. It's just LAME. Haha.

Let me show you...

See the maze. And the ugly love birds. Haha

And then I get the chance to build a larger maze. An order from a colleague. For his anniversary. Ohhh how sweet, isnt it? *puke*

Anyway, making a maze surely not that simple coz you have to sketch it on a paper first, then you draw the lines, and you also need to have the way to find the love (or whatever you have) in the middle.

I also had a chance of making a stick boy and a stick girl. Weeee~~~

the sketch

the stick girl

the stick boy

the love maze

my hard work pays off!

the card

I dont know what to try next.

Just wait and see....

KL view project - part 4

Already Part 4 is it?


Just a quick update.

Managed to fill up spaces between the names. But only for a name. Hahaha. I got tired, my back hurts, my eyes also got tired because I had to memorize which spaces to fill up and to measure the sizes. Urghhh! Yeah, I gave up already. I have to remind myself over and over again to make sure this one done by next year coz I have that zFi project waiting in the line. Huh.

See the name : FARHAN :)

I will be able to finish that by next week if I'm not that busy. Hahaha

Dream on.

KL view project - part 3

Been busy with work lately, but I slowly finishing this project if I have some time in between :P

This is the update. Glad that it turns out pretty well I guess. It takes time to fill up the spaces between the coil, so it's kind of pain in the ass to stare at so many black coils and searching for spaces, and rolling the paper strips, and cut out in different sizes due to different size of spaces. Hah. But, I'm currently satisfied with the outcome. Anyway, it's still 95% completed.

Full view, without the birds.

the spaces.

 the close up.

Adding birds to keep it lively. Heh

Yes, the names.

I just need to finish up filling those spaces between the names. Then I'm done!!! And then I'm going to send it to shop to get it framed :)

So to ditch you zFi project. I will start on that after finishing this. Urghhh!!!

KL view project - part 2

I was all up today coz I was so excited to finish this project. Unfortunately, I AM A FULL TIME GOVERNMENT SERVANT. So I couldn't just sit and roll all day. Haha

But I did go back late today, just to glue all the coils on the line so that easier for me to fill up the space.

I was kinda feel a bit enlighten by a colleague who asked about the KL view project when she saw that. I said to her, that this is still under consideration on opening this for orders. Coz, I think the least it would take me to finish this is maybe around more than 2 weeks if I am busy. One week top if I go back late everyday.

So this project is like an experiment, which I hope to turn out well  :)

Here's some pictures of the KL view project..

The Petronas Twin Tower

The KL Tower

The full view.

I have to roll more coils to fill up those spaces. I think I will get a back pain for days due to rolling and gluing for days. Arghh!!!

Wish me luck! :P

KL view project

I was so lazy days ago.

And the thought of how boring my life would be without a project kinda making me exhausted and unexcited indeed.

Yup, I started a new project TODAY. Yeay!!

I was planning on doing something like THIS cos I was inspired by the city view and it looks simple yet the artsy feeling make me wanted to have one but I didnt have the material first hand.

Fortunately, found a piece of thick white paper and then the qulling begins....

I sketched the shape/ picture of KL view on a paper.

The sketch is based on this picture I found on google.

Folded the paper follow the sketch.

Then, glued the folded strip paper 
on the thick white paper as based. 

This is the KL Tower, one of the tallest building in the world.

Fill it up!

The strips.

I just can't wait how it will turn out to be. I might not be the most creative one, but I do know what I like and how do I wanted it to be.

I just remembered, that I haven't had the chance to finish up my zfi project. Pathetic.

But I promise I will, maybe not now coz my room is freaking messed up! So I need to clear out and sort things out before I started my zfi project again.

the cocktail

My friend's colleague ordered a birthday card for her daughter with a cocktail theme. Previously, I made one before and she asked if it can be remake. So, I changed the color and the cocktail accessories for this card.

Thanking an ABC (Air Batu Campur) straw I got from eating ABC during tea time, I managed to used the straw on the card for more feeling of a cocktail. ^^

The flower I used is from my partner in crime previous design, which she changed her mind not to use it, so it saved my time from rolling papers all over again! :)

the orange slice.

the flower.

The everything.

Let's cocktail!

some of the quillings...

Someone has ordered a baby theme frame for his boss that will give birth to a baby girl due this week or next week, I'm not so sure about that. But he requested to receive the order this coming Saturday.

I helped my partner in crime doing the baby foot steps and when I rolled the strips I started to have this cute feeling.. it's a baby feeling I guess. ^^

foot with the toes on a mat

It's quite a happy feeling when you can do so many things with quilling even a baby foot step!

I guess that's how we roll in an arty world :P

An order from a lovely colleague.

I was making a frame to a colleague, she said it's for her hubby's birthday this coming November. I was so lazy the fact that I need to do this as a favor of a partner in crime. Haishh. Moreover, the theme is FLOWERS. Which making me a little bit off since I dont know how to 'play' with flowers. And yes, I dont have the experience in flower arrangement which I think it could helps. A LOT.

I managed to finish this frame today and yes, a lot of complaining came out from my mouth about how to do this, how to do that, how to make this look good and blablablablaaaaaa. But, finally it turned out well. At least for me :D

Colorful frame border

Yup. It's like a rainbow.


More flowers.



This frame can be stand both portrait and landscape view. I thought it would be fantastic since you can have both in a frame :)

I dont know why, I'm not in love with the flowers, but the colorful rainbow-like border is totally me! I LOVE COLORS :D

Till then, lots of other arty/ crafty projects are in mind. Yet, I still havent have the time to really deal with my zfi project that has been abandoned like months ago. Being a full time worker doing this as a part time making it a lot harder when you are throwing yourself a project because at the end of the day your priority is STILL is your customer. Hahaha.

Anyway, happy Monday people :)

mini bookshelf project

Wahh banyaknye kau punye project?

Whatever. Meh aku ajar. Step by step lagi. Ala2 acara tari menari gitu.

Semua ni kotak yang dah siap di-operate pastu
lekatlah balik ikut size, ketebalan & citarasa masing2.

Tengok, aku dah pun siap buat base.
Tinggal tempat letak buku pulak.

See... dah siap pun. Senang je kan?
Kalau tak nak nampak kotak sangat, before gam

This is the book. From a staples box.
Wrap with colored paper.

Balut. Balut.

This mini flower pot nih saje sebagai

Ok. This is it :D

Mini bookshelf with mini flower pot.

Bukan susah pun. Sori lah. Flower pot tu tak sempat nak amik gambar pulak kan?? Tibe2 dah siap. Ahahahahhaha penipu.

Memang lah orang cakap mengarut je buat bookshelf. Mengarut je buat mende2 mengarut nih. Tapi, its like something yang aku rase, zaman kanak2 dulu aku tak boleh buat, sekarang aku boleh buat, WHY NOT JUST DO IT?? And I did.

Kesimpulannye, aku nak pakse anak2 aku nanti same2 ngan aku buat benda2 macam nih. It's kinda mother-daughter-son bonding time heh poyo lah kau.
