Birthday Card Ideas! DIY

         Hey guys, and welcome. Valentines Day is over, I hope you had an amazing day, now go check your calendar if there's anyone's birthday, there has to be ALRIGHT. Or if there's not than its OK because the cards that I am making today you can make in advance so you always have something to give someone even if you forget their birthday, not particularly birthday.

        And also be sure to comment down  which card was your favorite, cuz this post was little difficult to bring up to you due to some technical problems but now I'm good, everything's good.

         These cards are so cute and easy to make, does take a little time to be honest but way worth it although the white one is really easy, takes less than 30 minutes. Like that's, that's, I have no words but guys you are going to die when you're going to see how cute they. I am already dead if you're wondering. Lmao

          Also please don't mind the fact that I took ideas from pinterest and Google cuz pinterest, duh! SLAY PINTEREST, YOU GOT THE SWAG. lol. But really now I think I really like Pinterest, dang! Alright where were we, again don't mind that I am pretty much making a replica of the original cards cuz come on when it come to thinking and using my brain, to be honest I am zero.

           I made these beautiful cards for my teacher's birthdays, which was on 6th February. We, as a class also made her this large card and individually wrote some fun stuff and wishes inside, it was pretty cute. Guys, she was literally crying from happiness, as she was reading her tears were dripping down her eyes to her face and on to the floor. Uh! made me emotional :**), the class was looking at her quietly. Then when she came in our class, when it was her period. She really appreciated what we did for her and said that her in laws would never remember my birthday. I feel sad for her, but all and all we did what we could. That's all!

         Alright I think I've done enough talking now let's begin  with the cards cause that's why you're here, probably you didn't even read anything from above. I bet!

         Alright now I am serious, let's begin

     Let's begin with the Cropped Balloon Card:

It's very easy and quick to make and I actually this on an envelope but obviously you can make it on a card, originally it was on a card but you know here on My Crafty Crane, we don't do orginal stuff, I mean we do but we mostly change up the original thing.

•  A4 sized sheet or envelope (White or any color you like)
• Yarn or Twine
• Glitter Sheet (Again any color you like, make a contrast)
• Pen (Any color sharpie or pen, I personally like dark blue)

• Fold you A4 sized sheet in half to make a card, at this stage you can trim it to size or shape.

• Cut you cropped balloon using glitter sheet, go in and out with it and finally you get there. It's very easy.

• Next glue your balloon on your card and then using your thread, make a loose knot around that little area and secure with glue, then just settle it down and glue.

• While that's drying up, go in and do some calligraphy. You can write whatever you like but I went with "Happy Birthday".

• I think it's it, just write your wishes inside and you're done.

  Now let's make the Candle Card:

• A4 sized Brown Paper
• Card stock (any color to make the candle)
• White cardstock
• Golden or Yellow glitter sheet
• Twine
• Pen ( any color you like, I used black)

• Fold you A4 sheet in half and cut out your candle shape with cardstock then small stripes with white card stock then stick those on the candle to represent some small detailing on the candle and glue the candle on to the card.

• Cut the little flame with you glitter sheet and glue it above the candle.

• Then using your thread or Twine,  tie a knot around the candle and secure with glue.

• Do some calligraphy again and write whatever you like but a usual I wrote 'Happy Birthday'

• And you're done.

    Lastly let's make the Triple Balloon Card:

This card was a little time taking and required a few extra supplies but at the end way worth it.

• A4 sized sheet (any color you like, I chose black)
• Random colored and textures paper (to make the balloons)
• Glitter Sheet (again any color you like)
• More Cardstock ( plain white or any color you like)
• Pen (black and pink pen or any color you like)

• Like usual fold your black cardstock in half then using different colors and textures of paper make your balloons. You can add detailso in to it and make it as cute a possible and attach it on to the card.

• Using the glitter sheet , cut a strip and stick it on to the spine of the card.

• Next use your cardstock and cut a piece of paper and write 'Happy Birhday'. Now it's not necessary that you cut a pieve of cardstock, you can write directly on to he card but my base was black so it won't be visible.

• OMG! You're done!

     Ah! These cards turned out so spectacular, I am obsessed. It is my generosity that I was able to hand these over to my teacher but they were made for her.

     So I hope you guys will recreate at least one of theseason,  cmon they're too cute to say no. Am I right? I am so right! But be sure that when you make these, you tag me on Instagram and use the hashtag #imacraftycraner and I'll like and comment.

  All and all, I love you loads and will see you in my next post. Bye

DIY: Valentine's Day Coasters

     Hi everyone,
             How are you? Welcome back, I missed you. I kinda did. But..... today like today I am up with another post for you. I had my hands on these coasters which are really simple to make.

They might not look so good in the picture but they are. The heart one is a perfect pair one so you can have one and the one you're giving to can have one. <3 ♡<3 ♡

Now to begin with the heart one: 

 Alright, all you need is 
 • Cork or cardboard (not cardstock)
 • Mod Podge
 • Coloured sheet (any color you like) 
 • Wide tape
Let's begin: 

On your cardboard, make a heart and cut it out then make this zig zag pattern and cut that out as well. Try to be as neat a possible so that when we cover it with paper it looks neat.

   Alright then cover to half hearts in mod podge and for the next step take your time and cover with paper. Next, it's really important step although I didn't do it because I wasn't giving it to anyone :P but you have to. With your wide tape, stick it on your coaster until fully covered to make it eater proof. And you'really done. 


                                Now for the next one:
All you need is: 
 • Cardboard ( with smooth edges )
 • Black pointer
 • Wide tape
Let's get started: 

Alright, begin with cutting your shape, any shape you like. I went with square. Next with a pencil write whatever you like, I wrote ' love '. 

Then with a pointer, outline your saying and cover your coaster with wide tape and you're done. 
  Although this coaster is simple and literally takes two minute of your time but still is so awesome and cute. 

  Thanks for joining in and I'll see you guys next time. I have an exciting post and sorry that planner post has delayed but I'll cover it. Don't you worry :).

How to Prevent Nausea in Car!!

     As its the first post of 2017, I decided to do a post over dealing with nausea, you may wonder why. I suffer with nausea a lot so I decided to help what makes me feel better. New year means new adventures and traveling, me and my family recently went on a long trip wedding and nausea in any case was with me. Now even the thought of car make me bring nausea. I have discovered some ways to prevent nausea but I made sure that I was telling them right so I also did Google to check.

1. Have your Meal before Travelling
    You always want to be full before you travel so you don't feel exhausted and disturbed.

2. Have a Drink
    Now when I checked this one on Google, it did not recommend drinks. But in my case it helps, so you can also try.

3. Packet of Chips
    Sometimes you do crave something salty or spicy in the case of nausea. Packet of chips is really nice to munch on, but if you have a sweet tooth then you must crave sweet so keep some candies or chocolate or cookies.

4. Travel at Evening
    Now you must be wondering why I didn't say 'Travel at Night' because it is considered dangerous or probably I'd say un-safe, and in the morning the sun is very irritating and causes nausea and also you need to be fresh and active so you're not sleepy.

5. Fresh Air
    Fresh air is such a life saver, you can open the windows or take a break. Stop the car by and just spend a few minutes in the fresh air.

6. Reading Books
   It is considered that looking at one thing causes nausea and vomiting in car, I've been through that.

7. Chew Gum
   I just don't know that chewing gum is such a life safer, helps so much but I don't know why.

8. Don't use Phone
    Screen also causes nausea, try not using it but then if you're wondering. " what do I do then?". Listen to music, make a playlist and ta da.

9. Choose you Seat
    Now I am not very sure about this one but I did see this on Google and also my mother thinks it's helpful. My mother would never sit in the backseat for long drives because it's uncomfortable and causes nausea for her. You can try and choose you seat but on Google it said front seat is helpful.

10. Take Sickness Pills
      A doctor would recommend Sickness Pills if these hacks don't work, we'll they should but you know you can't always stop your car or travel at evening or others.

   So these were the hacks that help or my family at least,  obviously so right information I did check on Google and found most of them work but only the second point wasn't clear to me as it did not recommend drinKS but obviously you can try and let me know

It's 2017

So I just did a post probably 2 hours earlier in 2016, and now it's 2017. I just came in after the fireworks, sorry couldn't film the fireworks because the lighting was really bad. But all I wanna say is Happy New Year, weird to say but true that 2016 is over. 1st January 2017. Yay. But I always get, I bet you too, but the next I am always fine the next day because it had to happen.


Happy New Year!!

     When I was typing the title, I took the last bite of my last donut. Eating the first is the easiest and the last is so miserable.

       I t's currently 8:30pm on 2016's last day, was that even right. I don't know. To be honest, I am so not celebrating the new year, it's not that I don't want to. It's just that I am so lazy that I am  currentlyrics in my purple seat pants and my red flannel. It sucks, right? I am so right. 

      I remember the last New Year's Eve. I was wearing my sunset leggings and my pink striped grey sweater and my boots. My sweater said 'hey' like I was saying hi to 2016. 

       My entire family from my father's side was here, my lil brother was sleeping and we all were taking pictures. It legit feels like yesterday but no, nope, it's an year later. I did have an amazing year, but the next year has to offer more. 

       We may or may not be moving in the very beginning of January. Like moving our house. I am excited, decorating my next room and taking you along. I wasn't able to make that many decor this year because when I started my blog,  my room was all decorated (I don't even like it). Yes, I don't like my room, becaaaauusse I have been living I  this house, actually in this room for consecutive 3 years. And you know these three years were my life's growing years and my liking and dislikings changed continously. But don't worry, I do have a theme for my next room.

          But yeah. By the waaaayyy, I have something for you very soon, probably in a week or two, I'll show you how to make a planner, completely from scratch, I'll show you how to make every single page, dashboards, inserts and a insert pouch too for your supplies as well as some supplies.  And it is totally budget friendly, I actually  used everything that I had already. In a way I didn't even spend a penny. Aaaand I didn't even use any printer or something, everything single, little thing is from scratch. I am so excited that I was able to bring something like that. 

        We here in Pakistan may not drink on New Year's Eve but we do have some amazing fireworks, exactly on 12:00 am. I am right here, writing a post and waiting till 12 to see those remarkable fireworks. Wait, really I hear them already. Not even kidding,  it's just 9:00pm. Wow. But the real are not here yet. 

     Again enjoy, live your life and make 2017 a better year. Bye. I am going to see the fireworks.

   Today I wrote this post because our blog has turned 1, I don really think I'll celebrate because yesterday was an amazing day so it's more like I celebrated. I don't really know what to write but it's been really great experience.

     Again Merry Christmas (although christmas's over) and a very Happy New Year. I can't believe it's been an year, all those timea when I apologized for not doing a post but I'll make 2017 a better year. Hopefully because I don't have magic and I don't wanna promise. Yes.

    Alright enjoy your life, live it the way you want to but always be positive, make 2017 a memorable year. Alright Buh bye.

Extreme Last Minure Christmas Gift Ideas!

    Did you forget someone on the list, cmon it's Christmas eve. I know you're freaking out. As you can read by the title it's Extreme Last Minute Ideas. I am going to be showing you some very last minute gift ideas which sure are cute.

   1. Chocolate Chip Cookies
      Who doesn't love these, bake a batch, tie them in cute ribbon and give me as gift. I'd be very happy to receive some delicious snacks. Now it's the holiday time, everyone has chocolates around. Go ahead and break up a bar and use as chocolate chips.  Click here to a recipe, I've tried it and definitely they were a yummy cookie batch.

   2. Accessories
       Now when I said accessories, there are many things. It is very vast, so go ahead and find some nic nacs around and pack em up, like your bracelets, or some chokers or even a cute belt would work. Gotta stuck those loosies up.

   3. Gift Cards
       When you're in a hurry, I think this one's the best. Depending on whom you're giving. Give accordingly, if someone like coffee and is that cafe person then a Starbucks cards is worth it. NO JUDGEMENT. someone who likes shopping and is beauty guru, Sephora Gift Card is the best.

  4. Book
     If you have time then you can buy one but if you don't,  and you're in extreme hurry then look in your stash and trust me you'll find one. Look for a book that is up to date with its condition, wrap it up and them put it under the tree.

 I hope you enjoyed today's post, Btw our blog is turning 1 right after Christmas on 26th and I'll plan something to celebrate. And also Happy New Year in advance. ENJOY.
