Christmas Pixie Easel Card with Nugget Box Bottom

Fairy Easel Card Front


Have you ever made a project that is a total labor of love? You start with a small little idea and it grows and grows and grows? That happened to me with this one! It all started when I saw a fellow blogger draw a hat for this darling Swiss Pixie... sorry I can't remember your name for the life of me or I would link to you. Easel box cards have been floating around blogland, but no directions could be found... then I remembered making a matchbox advent calendar box last year.. this could work! It did ... substituting nugget boxes for the matchboxes. Irina Blounts' lovely card was lovely inspiration as well. The hardest part was trying to stop decorating it. :) If I make another one I will post the instructions here. Wishing you all a wonderful day! Smiles ~ Brandi
