A magnolia tree in full bloom never fails to catch my eye. Everything about the tree is so bold and striking, from the large flowers to the dark glossy leaves. So creating this magnolia flower fairy was a no-brainer for me. Instead of wispy vines trailing out of her wings like my other sitting fairies, I made over-sized leaves that might be my favorite part of this fairy. I also added a flower crown—something I’ve been wanting to add to my fairies and this was the perfect fairy for it.
As with my other sitting fairies, there are two versions you can make of this fairy. One version is with her wings separated like in the fairy below, so you can make her wing a different color from her body—I used pink glitter cardstock. And the second version is with her wings attached (see above). Both versions are included when you purchase this design.
Starting with this fairy design, I will be offering two different sets of files—one for Cricut users who have a scoring tool, and the second for those who do not have a scoring tool. These will be in files labeled YES SCORING TOOL and NO SCORING TOOL.
The difference between the two is that in the YES SCORING TOOL folder, the fold lines in the fairy will show up in Design Space as a solid line and in the NO SCORING TOOL folder they will show up as dashed lines.
If you’ve purchased one of my designs and it doesn’t have the two versions, you can go ahead and use the SVG file if you have a scoring tool for your Cricut. If you do not have a scoring tool and you do not know how to create dashed cut lines, feel free to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can whip up the file for you so that your blade will cut dashed lines for your fold lines.
If you are cutting on something other than a Cricut, you should be able to use the files in either folder. (I’m not familiar with the software for other machines so feel free to leave a comment to let me know if you have trouble with fold lines in your software.)
If you’re new to Design Space and you’re not familiar with how to handle fold lines, watch my tutorial below for detailed instructions:
