Fairy Diorama Playset

Hello, G45ers!

  Today’s blog post is all about maximizing our Deluxe Collector’s Editions and using every scrap to create a Fairy Diorama Playset.  Below the lovely and talented Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Shannon Hannah shares the most delightful Once Upon a Springtime Display, complete with a Tea Pot Light, Banner, Fairy Chairs, and a Mini Album made from recycled paper scraps.  We encourage you to grab your scissors and play along with us!


Once Upon a Springtime Display

By Shannon Hannah 


“Hello everyone I’m very excited to get to show you how to get the most out of your Once Upon a Springtime Deluxe Collector’s Edition and not waste ANY of this whimsically beautiful paper!

Remember when doing this (or any G45 project) keep ALL your paper trimmings to make a RECYCLED Paper Book!

I decided on a posable diorama (basically an adult playset) because I wanted something that anyone can make no matter what your skill set is. From the easy button stairs and fairy chairs to the more complex Tea Pot Light and recycled mini book there is something here for everyone!!

I made several tutorials so it’s broken down and easier to follow along.

And as with any project I post if you have a question or need help let me know and I will be more than happy to help you!” ~Shannon
