Fairy Garden with XYRON & Imaginisce

I wanted to make one of these pretty Fairy Gardens for many months now - right after I saw  one on Pinterest ...these little beauties got my juices flowing .
I even started making one a year ago but my first try wasn't successful
Finally  a few days ago I decided to have another try and here are the results
LOVE !!!!! LOVE!!! LOVE !!! my new fairy garden

Here is how I made mine-
I found this large cardboard tube in the recycling bin-
filled it with little rocks,send and potting soil
 Added some "large" (to scale) rocks ,some ceramic and river  pebbles and varies succulents (gotta love these little cuties )
For added beauty,I donated to my garden this little vintage china pot in which I'd plant a tiny ,tiny succulent as well
-Puff , my Husky beauty came to see how my project is coming along and to supervise over the construction site :D
 With the help of my trusty companion , I made a walking path  using very small river  pebbles
 Added another trail using  broken ceramic pot I had laying around in my garden (smashed it good beforehead  :p
 AND constructed  a cinnamon fence to make a barrier between two different types of pebbles + I think this is exactly the type of fence a fairy will do :)



Then I took a good  look and notice something is missing......A little cottage for my fairy!!!

Thanks God I have my MAGICAL Imaginisce  cardstock papers,my Silhouette cutter machine and my trusty new best friends-my XYRON Mega Runner and Tape Runner to help with the construction of my little fairy cottage

To make one like this,

 you'll need -

  • For the roof and doors- the Imaginisce 'Tree House' 12 x 12 Paper from the Childhood Memories collection
  • For the house structure and windows- Vintage Marketplace's "Market Dots/ Stitches double sided patterned paper
  • Silhouette America's 3d Love House cutting shape (Design ID #13457) by Jennifer Wambach
  • XYRON Mega Runner
  • Xyron Tape Runner
  • Posca Markers
The assembling of the little house is very simple-you just need to cut the shape and glue the tabs...
 You can decorate the house as you wish

I didn't do much decorations ,because I wanted to leave it simple and cute as is,but I may add some decor later one...thinking some tiny planters under the windows will look adorable

 Check out the little snail charm on the dotted pebble (brought it from Thailand -it suppose to bring luck and good fortune  )

And here is Sheluvi, my 2 year old princess-came to smell the tiny flowers, holding a broken hand of her doll in her hand (in case you are wondering what is this plastic thingy in her hand lol )
 Good photo to demonstrate the scale of the garden ....
