How to make


You will also need:

Intricut Fairy Jar Die 

Step 1

For this design, we chose a pale blue paper to use for the fairy. Use a die release tool to make the process a lot easier.

Step 2

To add a set of wings, repeat the process to create another fairy and glue together except for the wing.

Step 3

Put a piece of pink through the process again to add a pink butterfly on top. The Intricut glue pen is a useful tool to ensure each piece of card stock is glued no matter how fiddly.

Step 4

Cut a darker shade of blue paper 5 x 7 to attach to the front of the card. Cut some more shapes out of the pink  paper for the butterfly turning into a heart.

Step 5

Cut two pieces of much darker blue which are going to be the vines and trees surrounding the trapped fairy. Use a craft knife to go round the shapes.

Step 6

Score some extra shapes in the top piece and with left over paper make a little box on the envelope for a name to go, adding the vine style detail.

Step 7

Glue everything down and add four small pieces of foam to the outer centre of each side to give the card a dimensional, layered effect.
