Hey guys! With Friendship day being this Sunday, DoubledotA decided to bring you some DIY tricks for your last minute gifts!
The US Congress proclaimed that the first Sunday of August is to be celebrated as The National Friendship Day in 1935. Since then it became an annual event. Soon, other countries adopted this practice of celebrating a day dedicated to friends. In 1997 Winnie the Pooh was named as the Ambassador of Friendship by the United States!
- Brush Kit :
Things required : A thick fabric , fabric glue and a ribbon.
Step 1: Make a crease on your fabric and fold it as per your required pocket size. Start applying glue from one side, and apply them in perpendicular lines till the crease.
Step 2 : Fold the fabric, and let the glue dry for a while. You can use heavy books to put pressure, and for a speedier process.
Step 3: Take a piece of ribbon and fold it in two, and then place it on one edge of the folded fabric. Use fabric glue to fix it firmly.
Step 4 : Now you can add the brushes, pencils, pens, and such other things in the pockets.
Step 5 : Start folding the fabric from the side where the ribbon is not attached
Step 6 : Tie it up with the ribbon.
See picture below for the steps.
This is a perfect gift for your artist friend, or a friend who is crazy about make-up! 🙂
Now this is completely upto you, but we here have shown you one easy example which you can give a shot to. 🙂
Things we need : A cardboard, a black chart paper, puzzle pieces, pearl metallic colour/ metallic dust with a medium, white paint, brushes, and glue.
Step 1 : Colour the puzzle pieces in any metallic shade. Colour the back side of the piece which is usually white, or you can apply white paint and let it dry, and then apply the metallic paint. For something extra, you can always add glitter on some of the pieces. Let the paint dry.
Step 2: Cut the cardboard in your desired size, and cut the black chart paper in the same size. Paste the chart paper on the cardboard, and let it dry.
Step 3: First, arrange your puzzle pieces in the way you want it to be, and then paste them on to the chart paper. There you have it!

3. Coasters :
Things you need : Pictures, cardboard, mod pudge, glue and scissors.
Step 1 : Cut out the pictures. These can be patterns and designs, or maybe pictures of you and your friend to give it a more personal touch!
Step 2 : Cut the desired shapes out of the cardboard — circles, squares, rectangles, polygons. Go crazy!
Step 3 : Paste the pictures on the cardboard shapes with glue, or you can apply mod pudge under the cardboard and then place the pictures, to give it a 3D look.
