Tinkerbell wings: To melt the cellophane without turning it into a sticky mess, use a piece of paper in between the wing and your iron, and place it on the lowest setting, moving up one if the job isn't getting done. Cut off the cellophane about a half to quarter inch from your frame, and place your iron directly on it to get the edges properly melted. Tinkerbell!

Add some glamour to your fairy costume using fiber optics. This method for light up wings uses a simple circuit of LEDs and a battery to achieve a look a similar to EL wire, but thinner and almost invisible when not lit up. The lighting isn't as even as EL wire because it uses a single light source instead of glowing along its length, but it was an interesting and fun experiment. It would be pretty easy to advance the project by hooking the LEDs up to a LilyPad to create blinking or fading…
