'C' learnt Gift box packing and decoration for a school competition. Children had to pack a gift box and decorate it in class. He did practice at home and learn step by step method. I gave him a paper, Golden Ribbon (Gota), a fairy, star stickers for decoration and cello tape. He did fairly well in packing (teacher even asked if he had got it packed at home) and pasted all decoration nicely.
I made this fairy using nylon stocking and wires. I already had a small doll lying with me (of course recycled from a Rakhi). For added effect, added some flower petals in magenta color, two green leaves(though leaves are hardly visible) and stamens (used in flower making) with a ribbon and golden lace.Here is a closeup of fairy with petals. This was first time I tried using stockings to make things and found it quite easy and satisfying. I hope to continue this in future.
Here is side view of gift box which is actually empty from inside.
