Fairy boats

I have a love for fairies, the tinier the better.  I love to be able to plant them in tiny gardens of flowers and mushrooms.  They just make me happy.
The largest of these measures 3 1/2 inches from the bottom of her boat to the tip of her flower wand.  Once again Lisa's Altered Art provided me with my starting point.
Everyone got some glitter and bits of bling.  

Each fairy was fussy cut out of cardstock and then I cut the same image out of regular paper.  I trimmed out just the wings and attached them to the fairy.  

You can see both sets of wings here.  

Then each one got a tart tin boat filled with moss and flowers. 

They each have a different staff depending upon what type of fairy they are.  
I am entering this into the Our Creative Corner- What Makes You Smile challenge.  

What have you been crafting?
