Joan's Gardens has a great challenge #3 this week that includes creating a box. Other elements include adding a butterfly, adding a flourish, and creating or using a flower. I chose to use a template I have had for years, that makes a double pyramid box. The template is from C-Thru.
I used a double sided designer paper from Creative Imaginations. I was worried about what pattern to use, because of the way you fold the panels, but this paper worked super! My butterflies are MS punches, with flourishes of Sizzix Sizzlets as their tails. I did wimp out and use sugared Prima flowers, but they added such great sparkle. I had this fancy trim with pearls that I just had to use and added it with strong adhesive tape. My hanger is made with a bright pink satin ribbon. Here is a shot of how the box opens for filling. I think it might just need a nice piece of jewelry for someone special, tucked inside. Soooooo many special occasions coming up!
I forgot to mention that I have been without Internet for hours, this morning also. Called the cable company and they were clueless (as always). Finally reset every box in the house and it came back on. Woo Hoo! Stay warm, and I will see you soon!
