Snowball Fairy

Hi there!

Today I want to show you my project for the current challenge at Copic Marker Spain.
After all those Christmas cards, I felt like doing something different. Our sponsor this month is Kraftin Kimmie, and when I saw that my lovely Snowball Fairy fitted in it, I decided to alter a box of cheese portions.

In this project: Patterned paper from Humphrey's Corner, pom-pom trim, lace, rick-rack ribbon, blue rafia cord, crochet snowflake, paper flowers, sequins, liquid pearls, glitter glue and a dewdrop.

Colouring details can be found here.

A view from the box side.

A view from the inside.

An a picture of the half decorated box, because I forgot to take one before starting =P.

Made for:



  1. Aurora, what a fantastic altered cheese box you have made that fits in well with the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog Monthly Challenge this month of “add some flowers and some ribbon”. Amazing. Thank you for entering and best wishes in the draw.
