Fairy Dust Lantern ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning and happy Friday.  Today I am sharing a project from SVG Attic.  I created a fairy house using the 3d Hanging Lantern and Graphic 45 - Fairy Dust.

I love the way the lantern went together.  Everything fits together very tightly especially the top.  Take your time and work the top piece in carefully or you will crush it.  The lantern is small, only 3x3 square and about 7.5 inches tall including the ring on top. I changed the window cutouts so you could see the inside of the lantern better.  I used the Circle grille on all four panel windows and cut out the center to open it up.

I used small paper roses, daisy and mushrooms in the center to place my fairy on.  I inserted the wires from the flowers through the tiny hole in the center of the bottom piece and twisted them together underneath.  Then I built up some mushrooms I had cut out of the Fairy Dust paper using foam tape and glued them behind the center cluster of flowers and mushrooms.

  1. Really magical. So fun to read your descriptions of how you "manipulate" the designs in your singularly creative way. And I love your photo setting as always. Wish I could do what you do with a camera! Inspiring me as always.

  2. This is absolutely adorable! As Jodi said, so magical. It makes a person want to go outside to see if they can catch a glimpse of a fairy!

  3. Awwww I want to be that Fairy that lives in your lantern!
