design team whimsy .... A yule fairy box


Today the day I show you my first project  as part of the design team at Lisa Kettle's designs... http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/MoonfairesWorld
 The first of many cute whimsy's


My yule fairy box
If you like to play too here's what  you'll need :

paper mache box ... any shape
Flora picks  I used a  glittered twig  and leaves  
moss
alcohol ink ( brown) 
white tulle
small snowflake  broken  to make wings 
small paper flowers 
tinsel 
Silver glitter 
an page from an old book  
small piece of lace
 one of Lisa's frozen Charlotte  
Lisa's fancy fru fru pearl pin  
 Lisa's glitter stars 
and the work fairy word taken from Lisa's fairy follies CD


Add the old book page to both the top and bottom of the box , glitter the side of box and lid.. put aside to dry.
spray frozen Charlotte with alcohol ink .. let dry.  
cut and fold the tulle in to ten layers , sow together  at the top with a running stitch... pull up to made a skirt  and add to the doll.   Using the lace  wrap around the top of the body, secure with dab of hot glue at the back.. add wings.
Make hat with more book paper, secure with hot glue to head.  Add flower to skirt and to hat. 
Add some tinsel to the pearl pin  and bend wire around a paint brush  to curl it. 
Make a small hole in top of lid and glue in the twig pick. glue down moss , glue doll , wand , small leaf and flower , glitter stars 

 Lastly add the word, fairy to one of the stars.

You have made wonderful Christmas creations, dear Wendy! One is more beautiful than the other. Too bad that I had this year not so much free time. I wish you have a nice festive season and a nice weekend, my friend.
