Making It Special:

 My daughter actually did this part 🙂
With the craft glue make little dabs or dots along the top points of the crown and then cover with the glitter – leave to dry then shake off the excess
Do the same along the outside of the wings and the bottom border of the dress.
 When all is dry redress doll – weave the purple ribbon through the exposed loops of rnd 8 – tie at the back. Sew the crown onto center of the hair on top of the head.
Sew the wings onto the dress at the back.
