Here are the rules for this week's challenge:
1.Make a box...any kind of box will work.....even an alter box (how about a box for your tags)
2. a flourish
3. a butterfly
4. Make a flower (alright...if you can't make one use one you have purchased)
My box is made from a template I purchased from PaperTrey Ink. It is supposed to hold cards or stationery, or whatever you want. This is my first attempt with the template and I've got to figure out how to keep those score lines from showing. The box has a divider in the middle so you actually have two sections. I really like the idea of this box and it is pretty simple to put together so I will probably be making more in the future. My paper is from my Stash, I made the flower with Prima E-Line Flowers and edged the petals with Stampin-Up Not Quite Navy and Mint Melody (Oldies but Goodies). Then I added Stickles to the edges, just because I love a little bling... The Swirl and leaves are from Spellbinders Dies and that cute little butterfly is cut out of some of my DP and edged in Not Quite Navy Ink.
Ok, I think I have covered all the bases for Joan's challenge. You should go to Joan's site listed above and check out what all the excitement is about. She has a wonderful shop there and carries many items and when you order, everything comes in pristine condition! She is truly a class act!
This should about do it for me today.....and remember, wherever you are and whatever you are doing, just take a little time for you and breathe!
