Butterfly Series Handmade Box With Assorted Cards

Over at Top Tip Tuesday  they have this fabulous tutorial for making the box below.  I have been looking for an easy box that I could use for my cards that require a box rather than an envelope.  The instructions given are for a smaller version, but it is easy to increase the sizes to fit your needs.  It is one that I will use over and over again.  Lots of pictures so grab a cup of coffee and have a look.

The cards were made using papers from the Mariposa Series paper by DCWV. I have had these for well over a year and decided it was time to use them.


Card below uses birthday sentiment from Heart and Soul Rubber Stamp Co
Butterfly was cut from Mariposa paper curled and set on foam pads to give dimension
embossed with detail black embossing powder
