Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Wings Craft Event + Save $5 on the Movie Combo Pack
In preparation for Disney releasing Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Wings, this past Saturday, Joann Fabric had a fairy-making craft event. (Thanks, The Suburban Mom, for letting us know about the event!)
Even though we arrived 30 minutes into the event, we were the first ones there. From the description online, I couldn't really tell how big the fairies we were going to be. Once we got there and saw pipe cleaners, I realized the fairies were going to be pretty small, life-sized if you will.
The nice girl, Becky, who was running the craft warned us when we got there that she had yet to make one because they were kind of tricky. (Oh boy!) She was only able to use white Elmer's glue because she was no where near an outlet. When I asked if we could use Glue Dots, she said they didn't carry glue dots in their store...WHAT!?!?! A craft store without Glue Dots??? Somebody has got to get on that!
After about 45 minutes and tons of glue stuck to my fingers, she ended up with this little fairy. It was a fun (and free!) event for my daughter and I to attend together. It also gave me confidence in my creativity and resourcefulness, as we had to stray from the original directions from the Joann Fabrics corporate office.
Coincidentally, Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Wings came out today on DVD and Blu-ray, And Disney Movie Rewards members can claim a $5 off combo pack coupon.
