How to Make This Beautiful Three Sided Shabby Chic Fairy Carousel


Good morning ScraPerfect fans, Kim here showing you how to make this beautiful 
three sided shabby chic fairy carousel.


I am using the Best Glue Ever and some gorgeous paper called Fairy Belle by Prima.


I have had this chipboard carousel in my stash for quite a while, and decided it was the perfect time to use it. I adhered all the chipboard with the Best Glue Ever, and it worked out so great and gave a good strong hold to assemble the pieces. There are three sides to this piece.


As you can see this carousel comes with a lazy Susan type spinner to attach to the bottom. I did adhere the spinner with some BGE, but I also added some hot glue for a more instant hold as well.


I painted the box first with gesso, then with a lovely colour from Martha Stewart, called Putty. Now it is time once again to get the Best Glue Ever out for adhering the paper.


I love this glue for paper!! It holds so well, really its one of "the best glue's ever" for paper crafting. ;)


Once the paper was on, it was time to embellish. I am using lots of different things I have had in my stash for a while. Flowers, resin pieces, lots of lovely laces and more goodies I rummaged through my craft drawers and found.


I decorated each section a little bit differently.




Once I was happy with the box part, I painted up some chipboard from my stash with some of my favorite paints from Prima.


Now its time for the Best Glue Ever to come back out. Can you see why I love this stuff?? I use it for so much!


I wanted the top of the box to have some sparkle, cuz what is a fairy scene with out glitter? So BGE to the rescue! I put small amounts in various places around the top of the box, like on the wings and in the corners.


I then sprinkled on some frosty glitter, and I love the effect!




I continued to add more embellishments and gave them a little coat of Diamond Stickles for more sparkle and shine.




I added some pearls from my stash and of course added more Stickles to them as well.





Once again here is the final look!
