"The Source of Magic"
Faerie Ring Luminary Cube
Once Upon a Nightmare deep in the center of the Furness Forest there's a glowing purple object the forest fae call “The Source”. Legend says three Faerie Rings merged to form a glowing purple cube and it's the source of all magic in the enchanted Furness Forest and on All Hallows’ Eve the power is at its strongest!
On the 13th Day of our SPOOKacular 31 Days of Halloween Hop+Challenge I'm back with a magical Faerie Ring Luminary Cube featuring SVG Cutz from my new Once Upon a Nightmare Collection!
I designed a large cube box measuring 6 inches square in Silhouette Studio and centered my three new Faeire Rings in the middle of each panel.
I used the Furness Forest Faerie Ring Layered SVG Cutz for the top panel, the Mushroom Faerie Ring Layered Lace SVG Cutz for two of the side panels and the Forest Faerie Ring Layered Lace SVG Cutz for the remaining two sides. The 6th side, the base, I left as a solid panel.
I alternated the designs on each side panel and then cut the cube out of heavy weight black cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo 4. I then cut 5 square panels out of vellum and 5 panels out of purple transparent cellophane. I first adhered the vellum in place on the backs of all the Faerie Ring panels and then adhered the purple cellophane to add a subtle purple glow then assembled the panels to create the cube.
I punched a small hole in the base panel along the back edge and threaded string fairy lights through the hole and adhered the wire to the sides of each panel so they're hidden from view through the apertures before sealing the base shut.
The cube is such a fun luminary to make for your Halloween decor and equally pretty to leave out the entire year too! You just need a little bit of time and patience to carefully weed all the Faerie Ring cuts but the end result is truly magical🎃
Shop the Once Upon a Nightmare SVG Cutz used today and more in the Halloween Sale on now through Oct 31st!
