Tinkerbell Fairy Light and Card

Hey everyone...well, I warned you that I wouldn't be around as much.  lol  But here I am today to share with you a tutorial for the Disney Pixar Blog Hop.

Welcome to the Disney Pixar Blog Hop!

Disney and crafting are a magical combination, and we are so happy you joined us to day for this blog hop.  Some of the crafters participating in this event have been doing this together since 2011!  Over the years the hop has grown but one thing has always stayed the same . . . amazing crafting projects that feature your favorite characters from Disney and Pixar movies.

For 2016 we are going to attempt to have a hop every other month for the entire year . . . February, April, June, August, October and December.  If you are on Facebook you can like the group page so that you can be the first to learn about each upcoming event.  Just click HERE to go the the Facebook page.

To make sure you don't miss any of the fun, be sure to start at Shawn's blog to see all of the projects.  Just click HERE to head over to her blog and then follow the hop line up at the bottom of the post to see everyone's projects.

Tinkerbell Fairy Light

My little niece, like many girls her age, is obsessed with few things in life, the first, Frozen, and the other, Tinkerbell.  Well, she has been scared of the dark lately so I decided to help her out with this little night light.

Supplies Needed:

  • Mason Jar
  • Mod Podge
  • Epson Salts
  • Battery Operated Tea Light
  • Tinkerbell Sticker (I created my own with Cricut)
  • Foam Adhesive
  • Assorted embellishments for top

Step 1:  Coat mason jar with a thin layer of Epson Salts.  You can tint your Epson Salts with a bit of food coloring if you like...I used a bit of red to make pink.  For extra hold, you can spray a bit of poly sealer over the Epson salts.
Step 2:  Create Tinkerbell sticker image.  I used the Print & Cut feature on my Cricut machine to create the sticker, but if you have a favorite sticker, feel free to use it.

Step 3:  Attach Tinkerbell sticker to tea light using foam adhesive.

Step 4:  Embellish Jar.  I used some small flowers and a bead spray to decorate the top of my mason jar, but feel free to use whatever you have handy.

Super quick and easy.  Definitely something you can make in an evening.  I think my niece and her friends may even choose to make them as a craft for her upcoming birthday party.

Of course the light had to come with a card.  And what is more fun than a shaker card.

Tinkerbell Shaker Card

Supplies Needed:
  • Card Blank (I used a chalkboard card from Core'dinations)
  • Patterned Papers
  • Sizzix Die
  • Foam Tape
  • Clear Acrylic
  • Sequins and Small Beads
  • Embellishments

Step 1:  Cut hole in center of cardstock to create window for shaker.  I love these thinlet dies from Sizzix when used with the magnetic plate.  This combination allows me to place my window exactly where I want.
Step 2:  Add acrylic to the inside of the window and surround window with foam tape.  You want to make sure and not have any holes that your sequins can fall out.  Looking for acrylic?  Try old packaging.
Step 3:  Fill with window with sequins and small beads.
Step 4:  Attach to cardstock base.

Step 5:  Embellish front of the card as desired.

Before you go, make sure to enter to win our prize for this hop . . . a Disney paper pack from Queen & Co.
