Yardstick Fairy House

Hello friends!  Crafty Secrets Design Team has been busy creating beautiful Fairy projects.  Check out Heartwarming Vintage blog for some fun and inspirational projects.  I decided to make a Fairy House using yardsticks.  I’ve furnished the home with all things a Fairy loves.  Sparkling glitter, mirrors and all things shiny!  I’ve used “Creating With Vintage Patterns” CD for two of the background papers.  Altered Fairy Creative Scraps were used for all the images.  I love that the Creative Scraps are double-sided and offer so many choices.



Here’s some up close pictures of the furnishings.

this looks wonderful jan.
you have made this beautiful

may I give you a tip, when you have cut out the images go with a pencil around the edges.
be careful that you do not go on the image, you dont see no white anymore.
hope you don't mind that I say that.

greetings karin
