Whimsical Button Fairy

The First day of Whimsy ... Nancy created these fabulous button fairies ... and I enjoyed every minute creating the little fairy
Supplies:
images: paper whimsy - silver paper lace, buttons, silver wire,
paper flower, blings, nestabilities, jingle bell


The biggest challenge was to find a substitute for the beautiful silver doily Nancy used in her creation. After a bit of a search I found this neglected silver paper lace which I've had for a long time but never used. I cut it with a Quickutz scalloped circle die. Otherwise I followed Nancy's instructions, I only added a little jungle bell - for Christmas, Petra.

Just stunning and gorgeous - I haven't made a button doll for ages and I think you have inspired me to make some more!!!

Love this, Petra but the lace looks just like a half doiley - would that not be a good alternative, sprayed silver? She has a beautiful face x
