Fairy box tutorial



I needed a box for my seeds...They were in a drawer...I thought a pretty box would be a good idea...
First i got this fairy picture from Flower fairies. I like it because it looks like my girls...

In France everything has to have a purpose...That is just natural to us...So this is practical, pretty and fun...



A white shoe box...Chose the colors and papers...


2 different papers...but matching....ribbon too..


Perfume picture....Violette picture.


A lavender drying sheet...smells good and i like the texture...


Glued the ribbon making bows at each end...



I placed the flowers where i wanted them, then took them away...smeared glue and applied glitter so it would glitter behind the flowers...




Fairy..."Adore" stamp...





Hopefully this box will inspire me with my craft room...It is on the works...With the whole house. LOL

Gros bisous mes Cheries....

I am linking to some fun parties on my side bar.

I adore your fairy box, Frenchy! The addition of the dryer sheet is such a great idea! It is so funny, because the first thing I thought of when I saw the little fairy's face was that she looked just like your cute girls! Too funny!
