Alright folks, I've got something of a dilemma here. As you can see from my wedding thread here:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231885.30

I have some very, very small wedding favor bottles. Now, as gifts for the bridal party we want to put highlighter fluid into the bottles to make glowing dungeons and dragons style cure light potion 'break in case of emergency' shadow boxes, but my maid of honor doesn't like d&d as much as the rest of us do.

However, she loves Link and the Legend of Zelda games. So, I want to make fairy bottles. However the bottles are very small and I'm at a loss for what to make the tiny fairies out of. I considered sculpey, but doing it that small would be difficult and wings out of liquid sculpey that small would probably burn if I bake them.

Anyone got any ideas?

How about if the outside of the bottle was decorated with a fairy-glass paint,etching,ect.? Or a little scuply fairy sitting on top of the cork? You could fill the bottle with sparkly glitter,tiny silk flowers, or maybe a different scroll?

Hmm, that might work.. I wonder if I could make a shrinky-dink fairy that small? Probably not.. it might wind up burning or something.

Could you make a wire "body" (covered with a tiny fabric skirt (ribbon gathered would work best), with a bead head and some glued on hair?  And you could do tiny fabric wings.

Aha!  Someone in this Zelda-themed swap^^^ made an itty bitty fairy jar.  Check it out for inspiration, and perhaps PM the crafter who made it for advice?  Zelda's awesome...

I love that she hangs from the cork!  It makes her really look like she's flying.
