I love these paper luminaries and are super easy, quick and practical.

They are punched with thumbtacks and here is complete tutorial.

Since, I am not good @ free hand drawing – took a printout of stencil pattern and punched all along the design 🙂 (stencil patterns)

Hi there, I am very delighted that you stopped by! I am Nima (Purnima) and live in The Grand Canyon State ( Arizona, US). It all started after I moved to the United States. I learnt about "Do-It -Yourself" concept from couple of TV shows and blogs. 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 ;). 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 :) It's been 3+ years and going great!!
