  1. To create the stalk – Cover a toilet roll with a strip of patterned paper trimmed from C97 005.
  2. Create the mushroom canopy by cutting out a circle using the patterned paper from the Carder’s Pack.  I traced around a small plate to create my circle outline.
  3. Attach the mushroom canopy to the stalk with hot glue. I glued the top on a slight angle.
  4. Cut thin strips from patterned paper (again from the Carder’s Pack) and punch a decorative edge along one side. Affix around the bottom edge of the mushroom canopy.  Decorate with strips of adhesive rhinestones.
  5. Die cut a decorative round doily and window element from the blue paper from the Carder’s Pack. Ink the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  Remove the middle part from the doily to create a frame and attach over the top of the mushroom canopy.
  6. With a craft knife, create a door in the stalk of the mushroom. Affix the die cut window across the front of the stalk so that the door sits in the middle.
  7. Create large leaf elements using C97 005 patterned paper – a fan shape will work well for these. Ink the edges with dusty concord distress ink. Affix this to the top of the mushroom canopy.
  8. Embellish the top with Flower Vine, Flowers, Small Bird Nest, Mini Mushrooms, Twisted craft wire pieces and Preserved Moss.
  9. Paint chipboard DC997 008 Butterfly with white gesso. When dry, dab with a little dusty concord and water. Add stamped detail with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. Affix in place (Refer to photo) and add a decorative rhinestone to the butterfly centre.
  10. Place a ST97 002 ‘Dream Big’ Sticker on a light coloured cardstock and trim around the outer edge. Affix in place.
  11. Make a base for the mushroom house using plain chipboard/box board. Again, I used a small plate for the template. Cut out and cover with patterned paper from the carder’s pack. Ink edges with Raspberry Pickle Distress Ink.
  12. Arrange Preserved Moss over the top and stick in place.
  13. Position mushroom house and stick down.
  14. Arrange fairy, mushroom elements and decorative glass pebbles around the house. When happy with arrangement, glue in place.
  15. Create a fairy letter- box from a strip of chipboard for the post and folded piece for the roof. Twist craft wire around the post.

Add a few small flowers and a scattering of adhesive rhinestones around the base.  Affix an empty ribbon spool to the bottom of the base to create a lit
