Peppermint Fairy

I was so excited to get this great Sizzix Garden Fairy collection of dies and stamps -- I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them in the CHA2013Winter release!

From Garden Fairies to Christmas Fairies and Angels and figures of all kinds, I knew I would find so many uses for these items!!  My favorite project so far is this Peppermint Fairy I made with the Flamingo Scraps Christmas in July Brights Kit, some of which you may be able to find in the Flamingo Scraps Giant Warehouse Box!

I cut two of each body piece from a neutral pattern from the kit and cut one of each piece from chipboard.  I used my Xyron X and 500 sticker makers to sandwich the chipboard between the two pieces of paper, inked the edges, and assembled the body with small brads.  The base of the skirt is diecut with the docraft Doily Die and covered in layers of Maya Road TuTu Tulle and Pleated Tulle and Webster's Pages tulle and feather trims.  The wings are made of a misc feather butterfly and the waist and neckline are highlighted with tiny strips of pink and clear bling.

I have wanted to make something using some of the really wonderful vintage pics I have of my family.  So inspired by Pinterest in particular, I enlarged a picture of my Grandmother Emma, printed it on regular copy paper, cut out the face and adhered it to the chipboard.  A wreath of tiny paper roses completed my fairy!  Well, almost -- I added a banner made from some leftovers from my Tonya LIVE!!! City Sidewalks kit from last fall -- see, we promise you will use everything in Tonya's kits!!!
