Fall Fairy on Wheels

Hi everyone! I am here to share my project I created for Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team. This month we are showing how to use the Twist and Style Tool. You can do all sorts of fun things with this tool...jewelry, create stems for flowers, etc.


For my project I started by cutting from Matboard the "drawer" from the Candy Box Drawer diecut. I embossed the drawer with Honeycomb Embossing Folder and spritzed both sides with the following Tattered Angels mists: Walnut Gold, Bronze and Tattered Leather. I then put the drawer together according to directions.


Next I cut four 8 inches of 20 gauge jewelry wire, folded in half and put each end through the button holes. To use the Twist and Style tool you can watch the how to video HERE.


Once I got all the buttons and wire twisted I cut the wire down to fit the bottom of the drawer to create wheels which I adhered to the drawer.


I printed a little girl image that I had found on the Land of Nod blog (which has since been deleted :-(). I fussy cut the little girl out, used butterfly wings from my stash, added a little Stickles to the wings and then adhered together and then placed in the drawer box.


I cut a Rosette from specialty paper, adhered to the top of the drawer a long with a small bead.


I twisted a few copper color wire on the Twist and Style tool and then I wrapped the wire around a small dow.


I added moss, a mini pinecone with an assortment of flower and leaf punches to the inside to finish off my little drawer on wheels.


Be sure to hop on over to Eileen's blog to see what the Inspiration Team has created this month. You can see their projects: HERE, HERE and HERE and as always if you have any questions please let me know.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!
