And now let me show you what I made!
It is not easy to get into spring mood when we still have snow in our backyard. It is slowly melting away, too slow if you ask me! Meanwhile I love looking at my indoor plants including the newest addition - small fairy garden with fairy house.
I picked Samantha's beautiful bird houses Love Bird Mailbox and made some small changes.
- I deleted the mail slot opening and the opening for the perch.
- I duplicated the heart shaped window on the front and added it to three other walls.
- I reduced the dimensions of the original heart on the front and moved it a little higher, closer to the roof
- I added the rectangular for the door
I cut the house and the roof from different papers from Samantha Walker Traditions collection.
I cut four pieces of transparency slightly bigger that the window openings and added ribbon "curtains" to three large windows by stapling the ribbon to the transparency.
Time for assembly. The best part is that no glue is needed. I found it easier to close the bottom first, than the side flaps and the top.
This can be a great project to to share with children. They would love to decorate the house and add small trinkets to the garden.
My daughter loved our fairy garden. I can see her spending hours arranging the pebbles, making tiny clay mushrooms and garden decorations and looking for just the perfect fairy that will live in the garden.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you were inspired to try these or any other beautiful cut files from Samantha Walker Silhouette Store.
