Fairy Garden Box

Hiya crafty folks! I participated in a swap on Craftster called "Invite Your Partner". Since my sister Lora and I have never been paired in a swap together, I decided to ask her to swap with me. Luckily, she said yes!

I made her a fairy garden, complete with twinkling lights!


The garden is in a former cigar box. I sanded the varnish off and left the wood bare.


The background is an older Pink Paislee line, to which I added upside down raindrops with a stencil and molding paste mixed with paint. I also added a few fairy-themed torn bits from a dictionary.



The poem was scanned from a poetry book by Robert Louis Stephenson.


The fairy lights!




Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are feeling creative, too.

Cheers,
Susan

I'm enchanted with my Fairy Garden Box!
I'm afraid I'm going to wear the light out, I play with it so much.
Thank you for making me this little treasure...I love it so!
