A Fairy Crafty Mother's Day

Hi all!  I know Mother's Day was a week ago, but I was busy celebrating and basking in the glow of the wonder that was the Mega Meet and having Mother's Day fun with my mom.  So I'm only getting around to posting this now, but this is the amazing (not tooting my own horn, that's what my mom and bro kept saying) box card I made for my Mamacita.  She looooooves Sleeping Beauty, it's her favorite Disney movie, so I made this with the new Maleficent movie in mind.


The front of the box.  I didn't follow the usual instructions for the box card, I made it larger and I also didn't care about it folding flat to fit into an envelope so my embellishments are thicker on the sides that usual and I used super-stiff cardstock for durability.


Custom-made ribbon I bought :)


Here you can really see that the fairies kind of look "in motion".  I used acrylic for that purpose.  I wanted the swishy movement of Flora, Fauna and Merryweather flitting around Aurora, protecting her from Maleficent's spell.


Here you can see the flourishes I painted and glittered on either side of the box.  I thought the green looked like the dragon Maleficent comes.


 And the wooden tag on the front. I love the blingy frame.


One last closeup.  I'm so in love with this project :)

I want to enter a few challenges, which I don't usually do with personal projects but my mom urged me to with this one and it IS her box, so....
Thank you so much for looking and happy crafting!  Laters!
