The ItsyBitsy challenge this month is all about the TriColor and if you scroll down, you will see a number of submissions, all showcasing just how beautiful the tricolor is. I think the best thing about it is that individually the colors - saffron, white and green don't really mean anything but put together, they mean so much, to all of us.
So for my sister-in-law's birthday which is on the eve of Independence - the 14th of August, I decided to wrap her gift with these colors. And I had the best time doing it. I started with a simple white base, topped it up with a green chart, edges cut in a pinking style and finished it off with orange ribbon. It really was as simple as that.
Of course the crowning glory was the orange edge carnation I made out of tissue paper. Gorgeous isn't it. I actually learnt it as a child in craft class and I haven't seen it in the usual craft spots so I thought it would be great to share as a tutorial. The video at the end of this post shows how I put it together.
