Welcome Stampin' Friends!
I have to show you the butterfly box that I made! Recently I shared with you the butterfly necklace that I made for my sister for her birthday. Well, it is time to send it off to her now. My mom suggested that I make a box to put the necklace in. And I love a challenge, so I did just that. I had been hanging on to a box that I don't even remember now what came in it, but knew that is would be a fun one to alter.
The ribbon is attached and comes out of the bottom of the box. I thought I would use that ribbon, but then my design went in a different direction as I got started. So I figured out how to remove it.
The box had a false bottom that was glue down. I pulled it up and gently removed and pulled out the ribbon. I replace the ribbon with Pool Party Seam Binding (#125582).
Then, I covered the false bottom with Tempting Turquoise Prints Desginer Paper (#117155), and glued it back down. I also wrapped the outside of the box with the same DSP. All I used to secure the paper to box was Multipurpose Liquid glue (#110755), it is my favorite.
Now for the lid of the box...
The Beautiful Butterlies Die (#114507) and Silver Glimmer paper (#124005) make this box AMAZING! And it really matches the necklace on the inside.
And here is the box, all tied up.
