Here is a view of the side of the box showing the little butterfly climbing up the lid...
But wait there's more...shall we look inside
This is the inside of the box, the piece right in the center is mirrored plastic (fantastic embellie to use)
This shows one of the wings opened. I have doubled the inside of the box so it can hold more little pockets for the gift cards that Emma was given for Christmas (8 in total).
I must admit I am not the worlds best embosser...I get a bit impatient and then it doesn't usually work very well for me but this time everything fell into place nicely.
This pic shows the floating Butterflies inside the box, I have used some very heavy acetate to hold them up and there is 3 at different heights., the bases are bent and adhered to the mirror then the flowers are used to also hold them in place.
This pic shows them a bit closer, they look amazing when the box is opened and the bounce up into place. Boxes like these are a fantastic way to use up all your leftover pieces of paper from different collections.
How about using it to give as a baby gift and pop some little bootees in the centre, and make the little pockets for round the edge with some little gift tokens in them? The gift can be used later to hold some of those precious mementos or photos
Thanks so much for checking out my little box
I hope this might have inspired you into having a go... if so start with a square piece of paper (12 x 12), score it into 3 equal parts (ie score at 4 in and 8 in) turn and repeat cut out the 4 outside 4x4 corners and then fold up the remaining pieces. If you want an inside piece then bring it back to 113/4 in square and do the same.
If you would like any further info please let me know and I will be happy to help.
