So today I have my hands on this beautiful Little Birdie “Fairy Sparkle” paper pack. I have created a pretty wall decor using papers from this pack, themed embellishments along with Little Birdie handmade flowers. So let’s get started.
I have cut 2 fairy design sheets of 12*30.5 cm and folded in cylindrical shape that are facing each other to avoid the white surface .
I have cut a circle chipboard with diameter – 5cm and layered it with similar themed sheets. After layering, pasted pre-punched doilies again on the either sides.
Then I have taken an outer layer of one of the doily sheets to make the front part of the cylinder. And now my favourite part the mesmerizing Little Birdie flowers and embellishments.
Here I have pasted Little Birdie Fairy Sparkle embellishments along with the handmade flowers inside the cylinder .
Lets begin with the outer layering!
Fixed some handmade flowers in shades of pink and leaves along with fairy embellishments in the front of the cylinder. Applied sparkle paste – Whipped Cream entirely to give a shimmery look following up with Summer Gold metal microbeads.
Concluding with applying Passion Pink sparkle paste entirely on the body of the cylinder and Hearty Melange silver hearts as a topping! And we are done!
This is exactly how it looks hanging on my wall! Don’t forget the ribbon.
