This month on #BostikBloggers we’re all about Christmas, like much of the rest of the world, so we have decided to host a Christmas tea party for some of our neighbours and friends. We made a set of paper snowflake fairies and decided to use them as invitations to our Christmas party. Here’s how we made the snowflake fairies.snowflake fairiesYou will need:

  • White paper
  • Skin coloured paper
  • Tissue paper or coloured paper
  • Scissors
  • Glitter
  • Glue

  • Felt

To make your snowflake fairies:

  1. Use a small side plate and trace a circle on white paper.
  2. Cut out the circle
  3. Fold in half.snowflake fairies
  4. Fold in half again and in half again.
  5. Cut a half circle, triangles, slashes or a half a heart.
  6. Open the circle and glue the front.snowflake fairies
  7. Sprinkling glitter all over.
  8. Glue the back of the ‘snowflake’ and attach coloured paper to it. Cut it out. I left a bit of the tissue paper sticking out like the ‘puff’ under a skirt.
  9. Cut the circle in half, then cut a bodice off. This will be the top.snowflake fairies
  10. Glue the bodice to the bottom to make a dress.
  11. Cut legs, a head and arms from the skin coloured paper.
  12. Glue the legs and body to the back of the dress.snowflake fairies
  13. Stick the dress to a plain page and cut out the dress. The plain page is to cover all the ‘insides’.
  14. Fold a sheet of coloured paper in half then draw wings. Cut them out and open, which will give you balanced wings. We have some patterned adhesive paper, which I glued to coloured paper to make textured wings.
  15. Draw eyes, a nose and mouth on the face.snowflake fairies
  16. Use felt or paper to make hair.
  17. Finish off the fairy by giving her a belt and shoes in the same colour as the belt.snowflake fairies
