Fairy Jar

 I hope you don't think I have lost my mind. (I may have) I just thought this was so sticking cute I had to make one. I was watching Cynthialoowho on You Tube. Say that 10 times. She had been making these Fairy BottlesShe was making it for a contest but I made mine just because I thought it would be fun. My fairy is in a jar I got at Goodwill for $0.50. The fairy is from A Day for Daisies. Every Friday Tammy has a new release and there always is a $2.00 digi. So on Friday I don't go out for coffee. I buy a stamp instead. LOL I never go out for coffee. When I saw this adorable fairy I had to make a Fairy Bottle. I wish I could remember the story about a fairy bottle I read when I was young. 
Here are some pictures.
This the Fairy Jar
I got most of the ribbon and trim at Goodwill too. I colored the fairy and flowers with Copic markers. I didn't seal my jar shut just in case she wants to fly away. There is a nice bed of fibers, dew drops and flowers in the bottom of the jar.  You can't see them in the picture.
This is the top of the jar. I really thought is was a very nice jar for $0.50. I added feather and bling to the bow. Cynthia's is a lot fancier.
This picture is suppose to show you how she sparkles. I used lots of Stickles.
The part I love about digi images is that you can flip them. So the back of the jar shows the same image. I just colored two images (one flipped) the same. Cut them out and glued them together.

And now I have a fairy in a jar. I wonder if I should make a wish or something.  It was really crafty fun to make. Now to find a good story to go with her.

Thanks for stopping,
