I can’t wait to share a cute and pretty way to dress up Laddos(round sweet balls) for Diwali! They look super cool and are a memorable way to share with family and friends 🙂
All you need is fancy/color tissue paper ( I found mine @ dollar store), a thin ribbon (floral section of Hobby Lobby) , cling wrap or small cellophane bags (baking section of Michaels)
Start by wrapping the Laddos in a cling wrap or small candy bags and seal with a tiny piece of cello tape.
Now, cut a rectangle piece of tissue. It should be big enough to completely cover it almost twice. Roll it and twist the ends gently. Add gold ribbon to the ends.
Use a fancy box or a favor box(this one from dollar tree) and a candle holder. That’s it, you have absolutely pretty sweet and gift box ready 🙂
These gift/favor boxes make great return gifts for Indian festivals and weddings too.
Cheers and Happy Diwali!

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby and recently mother to an adorable little munchkin :-), an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and now currently @Portland, Oregan. Recently relocated from The Grand Canyon State and still adjusting to the gloomy weather here...
When we first we moved to US(2012) ,our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started.
You must be wondering HOW?
I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs.
Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav!
Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-)
And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :)
And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :)
Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
