Acorn Fairy House

Hello everyone!  I have a new project to share with you... it is a little fairy house in a garden setting that I am calling the Acorn Fairy House.

The project features Graphic 45 Deluxe Collector's Edition "Once Upon a Springtime",  This was one of my favorite paper collections and I was so thrilled when Graphic 45 re-released it earlier this year.

The acorn house is large enough to store a small book or mini album in the inside.  The windows all have lights and you can catch a glimpse of a fairy if you peek inside.

There are places for the fairies to relax and play in the gardens around their house.

A lantern hangs from a large mushroom near the entrance to the garden to light the path to the fairies home.
