I may have mentioned it once or twice before, but I had several polymer clay fairy garden tutorials published in Polymer Café magazine.

Including having my sweet little birdbath on the cover a couple years ago.

In total, there were seven fairy garden accessory tutorials and the vines and flowers pens tut. (Still one of the most popular!)

Then, sadly, the magazine ceased publication.

Which is why this cute little acorn mailbox tutorial never made it out into the world…

…Until now.

Although Polymer Café is no more, which is sad, I miss it, the good news is you can now find all nine of these tutorials in downloadable PDF format in my Etsy shop, Keepsake Crafts Create.

Just last week I finished editing and updating the final one, this darling, glow-in-the-dark fairy lamppost.

Think about all the different times and places you’ve seen images of bird’s wings, butterfly wings, angel wings or even fairy wings.

Whether in art, fantasy or nature, wings are very beautiful and popular things!

I have a little fairy sculpture who has been needing her wings for quite some time and finally I got around to making them. She is part of a larger sculpted piece which I will be completing soon. If you follow me on Instagram I will post it there when it’s done.

I was really pleased with the method I figured out for making the wings. You could use this technique to create all sorts of 3-D objects out of two dimensional stamped images.

I’d love to hear your thoughts for different ways you would use these ideas!

Enjoy the video and happy creating!
