I participated in a Matchbox Fairy swap over on UKS recently. The criteria was literally to make a fairy out of anything and house it in a matchbox sized-ish box.
This is what I made for my recipient - she is imaginatively named... Buttons, because... well... that's what she's made of.
Her hair is made of purple fibres from the Gauche Alchemy Purple People Eater kit - and her box is decorated with purple tissue paper from the same kit, Scraps of DCWV Once Upon A Time paper and punchinella/sequin waste (on the inside.)
She was great fun to make and I must admit I love her to bits. Think it's the buttons, just love playing with them.
This was the gorgeous fairy I got back from my sender - the oh so talented "Kitty Crafts."
Isn't she amazing? She put her in a coffin because she knew I liked 'different' things. All the fairies turned out so unique - I love taking part in these swaps and seeing the different ways people interpret the subject.
Thanks for stopping by :)
