Butterfly Box

Challenges
Dutch Dare (127) - Anything But A Card
Digital Tuesday (126) - Going Buggy
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes

Today I have made a 15cm square box to use for a card with some rather large flowers on it (thankfully I don't have to post it). I don't make boxes very often as I'm not very good with the measurements, but my friend offered her expert advice and this is the result! I'm very pleased with it, thanks Terri!

Okay, so I covered the box lid with some digi paper, making sure I rounded the corners off first. I then cut a nestie label, embossed it and inked around the edges with a promarker. I then cut a smaller label, stamped the sentiment, inked the edges and placed this onto the larger one. Now comes the fun part of arranging the flowers and punched leaves, all attached with silicone glue. Finally I added some butterflies which I punched from blue vellum. That's it, hope you like it, thanks for looking.
