Needle Felting--Fibers and Fairies
Start with the finished dimensions of the box. This little one is about 2" square. Add twice the desired height (1 1/2" x2=3"). Cut out a square that is the sum of these two--twice the height plus the base of the box (2"+3"=5"). Score the cardstock 1 1/2" from each edge to mark the height of the box. Cut a wedge out of each corner so it is easier to fold, then fold, tape and viola! You just made a box! I punched out the window in each lid prior to taping them.
The dolls are made of Romney wool, natural and hand-dyed, plus a bit of unknown breed wool (the browns for the hair), and a little bit of angelia fiber to make the wings on the little fairy sparkle.
