There’s a little princess in each and every one of us, wanting to get out. Some days we’re the princess of quite a lot, sometimes we’re a princess because people love us, sometimes we’re a princess because we need a boost and being a princess makes us feel nice. Today, you’re the princess and I have your crown and magic wand ready! I was inspired by a whimsical play tiara that my sister gave me – it lives in my craft room. She put it on me to make me smile on the day we took my blog picture above. Every now and again when mojo seems to have left me, I sneak in and put it on!! From the first moment I saw Spellbinders S5-078 Persian Accents and Spellbinders S5-079 Persian Motifs, I thought the border looked like a tiara. Each element looks both vintage and regal. Each piece is delightfully filigreed and easily stackable with so many different options. I have several close up shots so that you can see the beautiful detail on each die template!!
The wand is very light with ribbon streamers and uses foil, cardstock and decorative pearls and bling. It’s essentially a medallion, and the back layer is flat and was cut from the foil.
The layers on the crown are less than 1/2″ and is able to sit flatly on a wire base which you can see above. Below is one last close up for detail.
Here are the new dies I introduced:
My second project had to have pink!! I’ve created a dimensional envelope to house a small card and have created a bag with a vertical belly band as an accessory. I’ll be teaching you how to make this ensemble today.
Below is a picture of the opened envelope with the card inside.
Below is a view of the small card sitting on the entirely opened envelope.
Below is a picture of the accessory gift bag with vertical belly band.
I’ve put together a video below to show how I made the ensemble here is the link:
