Fairy dolls and houses

Ah, the magic of childhood. My little girl is smitten with fairies at the moment...

and her birthday is coming soon...

so we are having a FAIRY PARTY!!! I made a fairy doll for each of the party guests (not all fairies are shown). Yes, we have 1 boy attending, so I made a fairy out of leaves instead of flowers. I hope that's boyish enough! However, the green leaf one happens to be my favorite. :)  I was hoping to make a fairy house for all the guests as well, but that was just more than I could do. The two I did manage to create will be table decor.
They are made of 3 toilet paper tubes. I cut the tubes open and glued the three opened tubes together to make one large "tube". Then I cut a door into the side. Then I glued down popsicle sticks all around the tube. Luckily, the tube was the same height as the sticks! I then held up a popsicle stick and marked the angles of the door opening and cut the stick to fit above the door.  I repeated that four times to cover above the door opening. For the roof, I cut construction paper and glued into a cone shape (I'm sure you can find a template online). I then cut out leaf shapes, fold them to crease "veins" and glued them onto the cone shape. Tada! Fairy house!
I found the tutorial for the fairy dolls here at the blog "Tuffet". Check hers out!
I'm also making tutus which I will post once I have them made.
Check back for pictures of the party! It should be a good time!
Oh, I'll also post a picture of the invitation.
