I got a knitting kit for a Christmas present. I finally made use of it in one of the weekends, and knitted a cap for my kitty! Yesterday I finished knitting a blue cap for myself. I'm putting it to good use. I already wore it to school to show my teacher and all my friends. My mom has asked me to make her a cap too!
This is a picture of my Diwali rangoli and I had made it just before going to school on the day of Diwali. I had only 10 minutes to make it and in those ten minutes managed to fight with my little sister Surya to get the bowl with more color powder in it! I chose to make a "Diya" because I didn't want to pick a big design and risk going to school late. I wonder why my mom doesn't allow me to make my diwali rangolis the night before?
I had used two sheets of paper, a scissor, and a glue stick to make this red mask. I drew a mask design on the red paper and cut out the features like the eyes, nose, mouth and the ears. I then placed the black paper underneath my red paper mask to make the pattern stand out. I was pleased with what I had achieved!
Kirigami is the art of making patterns cut from tissue paper. Kids love to make snowflakes in school, using scissors to cut designs out of paper-squares.
In this pattern, different colors of cut tissue paper were placed underneath the top white paper to make a colorful design.
