Butterfly box

My daughter has just turned 21 - it doesn't seem any time at all when she was just a little tiny baby and now, 21 years of age! I made this Easel card/box to put a special gift inside - she's mad, mad, mad about butterflies and I thought she would like this - which she did :)


I have cut the butterfly on the Silhouette and then mirror imaged it and welded it together so that I had a back to it. I then made the box and and slipped the extra edge ofthe butterfly under the paper which I had used to cover the box - sounds very confusing but I'm not very good at describing how it's done, sorry. I cut out some extra flowers to layer on the butterfly and decorated with gems. I have used glossy accents on the 21 to give it depth and layered it on scallops decorated with gold stickles. A couple of extra butterflies dipped in glitter and a scalloped border to finish off.

Sir Stampalot have a fantastic prize for this month's challenge which is butterflies and blossom so I'm having a go - pop on over there and you can see what their fantastic design team have been up to.
