I'm sharing a DIY project today on the
created with Stardream Metallic Card Stocks from
If you know a little girl that would like a fairy themed birthday party this project would be perfect for a centerpiece. I created 5 wands and arranged in the container. The wands could even be given as party favors!
I started with some beautiful Stardream Metallic card stocks, STARDREAM METALLIC AMETHYST, STARDREAM METALLIC SILVER, STARDREAM METALLIC PUNCH , STARDREAM METALLIC KUNZITE
I die cut 4 fairies, 4 scalloped circles and 5 regular circles and punched 10 1 inch circles using the metallic card stocks.
I picked out 2 printed papers from my stash that coordinated with the metallic card stocks. From the printed papers I cut 10 strips 12 x 1 5/8 inches. These strips were scored along the 12 inch edge every 1/2 inch and accordion folded.
I created rosettes with the scored strips by attaching 2 strips into a circle and adhering to the punched circles.
I attached the rosettes to the scalloped die cut circles and I adhered the regular die cut circles to the top of the rosettes. These layered pieces were then attached to a small wood dowel, which painted silver.
I added the fairy die cuts next with foam squares.
Now I need a container to hold the wands so I chose a popcorn jar and decided I would cover it with 2 pieces of silver tissue paper.
I placed the jar in the center of the 2 pieces of tissue paper and brought the ends up to the mouth of the jar and tied with a piece of tulle. I added 3 pieces of floral foam to the inside of the jar to hold the wands.
I put together a 5th wand with a "Happy Birthday" die cut. I used some BASIS BLACK 80LB CARDSTOCK with the metallic card stock and one of the printed papers. I arranged the wands in the container and decided to add ribbon and tulle to the tallest wand. I also added some tulle over the opening of the container to mask the floral foam and my centerpiece is complete.
