Fairy Packet

Fairy Wings

Recently at our house there was a party to celebrate a young fairy getting her new wings. As any fairy mother knows, 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 much ceremony and preparation 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 this fairy packet to hold all the invitation material that the invited fairy’s friends needed to attend the festivities.

Fairy Packet Front

We used standard white card stock for the outside, and then decorated it with tea stain and stamps and markers.  Then we backed the cut out section with glitter paper to show through, and lined the inside with plain white paper to make it all nice and neat.

Fairy Packet Side

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

Inside of Packet

We turned to the magic of the KNK Studio software to create our design for the 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 this YouTube video:

We are happy to report that the fairies had a very lovely time at the party.  And yes, the Fairy Fancy Beauty Spa sign is courtesy of the KnK Maxx as well.
