Fairy Book Box

Hello all! I have a gift project to share with you today. It is a box that looks like a book! The image is from A Day For Daisies and it was a freebie on CDAC recently. I paper pieced the dress and covered her wings in stickles. This was my first time paper piecing and it wasn't so bad except I lost the little piece that I cut out for her hair bow, lol. Never did find that thing. I made the flower with fabric using the singed edge technique.
