Fairy Dust Bagatelle Boxes

I'm pretty excited about my first project for Being a sucker for small things I was keen to play with the Bagatelle Boxes. I had a few ideas but the fairies were demanding and I ended up with these fairy dust shrines.

Don't they look like they just came out of a fairy godmother's cupboard?! The boxes come in six different sizes and can accommodate various sized bottles and vials. You can purchase a set of bagatelle boxes containing two of each size, or buy them separately.

For this blue bagatelle I've chopped up a plate from the Keys & Plates Shape Set to create the feet. You can see a demo of how this is done in the tutorial video listed below.

This one uses the Stackable Labels Shape Set. I've used the the Miniature Bookplates Shape Set on some of the other boxes.

And just in case your handwriting is a little bit iffy, I've created an entire sheet of little labels of Fairy and Pixie Dust to fit all manner of little bottles and vials.

There's a video tutorial for this project, and I really hope you'll try your hand at making some magic ;)

  2. Those are just wonderful and magical Nichola, love them!

  3. I wish I had half the creativity you have, Nichola! These are great. I am always so inspired when I see your creations. I'd love to do a bunch of these and display them together.

  4. Oooooooo these are dreamy! I love the small sizes of the boxes and am now a Gina's Designs customer thanks to you. lol

    One of the many things you do sooooo well Nichola is to take an idea, an inspiration or a design and fully realize it.

    I often tell people who want to get into the creative selling field, "whenever you think you've taken your creative idea as far as you can, especially in the details, that's when you need to go two steps further!" lol

    Beautiful and pure magic!!
