Winter Fairy House

Posted on January 21 2017

Sonja is on the blog today with a cute little fairy lantern, how cute!!  Perfect for a little girls room, birthday party decor, or just to have out during the winter time for a bit of fun!

Finally I caught the Snow Fairy and there hasn't been any more snow since I caught her!
Step One: Choose your foil:
For this project I used light blue, silver, and dark blue
Step Two: Choose a file
After choosing a file, I find it helpful to cut the file in a heavier paper and attaching the foil to it for more durability on 3D files.
After cutting the base of the lantern out in white cardstock, I cut the base again in the silver foil and attached to the white cardstock. 

Step Three: Snowflakes
Now I had some difficulty in this area. Snowflakes are a delicate cut with intricate little pieces. The foil is delicate as well.
I found it helpful to have a utility knife to help me cut some parts out. The blade setting on my machine was at the lowest with the lowest pressure.
Step Four: Find a Snow Fairy
After cutting the fairy in black, I adhered it to the inside of the lantern to create a shadow effect.
Step Five: Add a light
The bottom of this lantern is open, but it fit my tea light perfectly so it would fall out when hung up.
The best way to catch a snow fairy is with sugar. You know what they say, sugar and spice....give a fairy sugar and it takes the spice out of her leaving us too much snow!
Materials Used: 
Rinea Foil
Silhouette 3

File from Silhouette Design Store
