fairy lights greeting card 2.0

a superior version of the previous fairy lights greeting card...reloaded, in the matter of speaking. fabric and no sewing needed, just micro fairy lights.

the great thing about micro fairy lights is, that they can be twisted and shaped into nearly everything...especially into hearts.

to make them a little bit more special and to give the heart a little bit 3-dimensionality, i added some beaded wires, which are also easy to be twisted and shaped.

...the heart looks really stunning with the lights switched on but it also looks really beautiful when the lights are switched off...i am in love...!!!

this is what you need

- laminate sample

- two micro fairy lights

- two metalic beaded wire garlands

- alphabet stencil
