Small Green Girl
I fussy cut the girl out, and wrapped the box in
lime green tissue paper. To give the girl some
depth I added a couple of squares of mount to
her back. I then added the German Scrap to
give the feel of a garden setting.
A few small things like butterflies and flowers
make this a nice home for her. She is at home
in her garden or on her way to a St. Patrick's party!
Fairy with Flower
This fairy is particularly sweet. She is delicate and
really need a soft and cozy place to reside. I
wrapped the box in printed tissue paper, and
printed two (2) images of her. I cut the first image
to the size of the box, and fussy cut the second copy
of just the fairy. I added the mount tape and placed
it directly on top the first copy of the fairy, this adds
dimension and give a bit of a shadow. I put glitter
on her wings and her flower. I placed a large
German Scrap medallion on the back side to give
a regal feel to her home.
I once again printed two images of this fairy, fussy cutting one
of them. I covered the box in tissue
paper, and added some moss to the bottom and placed the
butterflies on it. I placed a band of German Scrap to the
top making an round shape that lets light in and highlights
the fairy and her butterflies.
I hope everyone gives this small shrines a try!
