Equipment:

My daughter just loves cardmaking and this design is her favourite. You’ll need:

  • Coloured card for the body
  • String or card for the hair
  • Netting or feathers for the wings
  • Stick-on gems
  • Glue or double sided tape ribbon & beads for feet and legs
  • Pipe cleaners for arms

Directions:

  • Cut a triangle  of card for the body and a circle for the head.
  • The hair can either be string or cut from card also.
  • Either cut a rectangle of netting and tie in the middle for the wings and glue to the back of the triangle body. If using feathers simply glue or tape at the back.
  • Stick the head and hair on. Draw a face.
  • Thread two beads onto a ribbon for the legs and feet and stick to the back of the body.
  • Decorate with gems or glitter.
  • Attach a bent pipe cleaner for arms.
  • Glue the completed fairy onto a blank card, or for something different, attach another ribbon to the top of the head and hang on the wall or from a bed canopy.
