Fairy Packet

Feb 26th

Recently at our house there was a party to celebrate a young fairy receiving her new wings. As  fairy mothers know, when their  baby grows up, they outgrow their wings!   Much as human children get a new set of teeth, fairy children get a new set of wings.  This is a very joyful event, and a special ceremony is involved in the presentation of the new wings.

Of course for festivities such as this, only the most fancy and proper invitations will do.   So we designed a fairy packet to hold all the invitation material that the fairy’s friends needed to attend the festivities.

We used standard white card stock for the outside.

and then decorated it with tea stain, stamps and markers.

We backed the cut out section with glitter paper to show through

and lined the inside with plain white paper to make it  neat.

Inside finished with brad and Ribbon for closure

We had lots of things to put inside the packet!   A small book, stickers, coloring sheets, pins, letters, photos and most importantly, the invitation.  It held quite a bit of fairy paraphernalia!

We turned to the magic of the KNK Studio software to create our design for the fairy packet.  We found a raster image in public domain on the web that we used as a starting point.  The image was vectorized, and then modified to create the final image used on the packet.  You can find more detailed information on how the packet was made and put together in the video.
