Butterfly Gift Box

Butterfly Gift Box By Annie Williams - Main

Just popping in today to share a pretty spring gift box I made with elements from the Butterfly Lullaby Collection from Crafter’s Companion.  This little box measures about 4″ x 4″ x 1″…the perfect size for a special piece of jewelry that I may or may not be giving this Mother’s Day. 😉

I started out by making a basic box with my Ultimate Tool using White Pearl Shimmering Cardstock for the lid and Rose Pearl Shimmering Cardstock for the base.  Then I trimmed panels from some of the pretty sheets in the 6×6 paper pad for each side and matted them with more Rose Pearl Shimmering Cardstock.

To embellish the top, I cut and embossed the Circle 3D Butterfly and some fancy flourishes from White and Forest Green Shimmering Cardstock.  To make the circle really pop, I backed it with more Rose Pearl cardstock before bending the butterfly wings upwards.  A little white satin ribbon holds the box closed.

The pretty palette in this collection makes creating gift boxes for any springtime holiday or a wedding shower a breeze!  Are you creating something special to package mom’s gift this year?
