Butterfly Boxes

This was our last project at last month's Watercolor Wings class. I had been seeing these boxes pop-up all over Pinterest and just had to include my own version.

The base curvy keepsake box is cut in Melon Mambo and then the English Garden DSP was cut from the handle side of the die as well (skip the other section). I then trimmed this cut piece of DSP down at the fold lines so that only the main side face was left- all the folds were trimmed off- and I adhered it to the matching place on the Melon Mambo base.

Last, but certainly not least (after all it is what makes the box awesome!), I used the butterfly framelits to cut out the medium butterfly in Melon Mambo and the small butterfly from some vellum. To attach them to the box you have to cut the butterflies in half (gasp!) but don't worry, once you adhere them to the sides of the top split they will look whole and beautiful again :)

Flutterby again soon!

Pin It!
