First, it qualifies for the paper piecing challenge at Pink Cat Studio. I used the free Butterfly template to create a paper pieced creation (actually I did 2 butterflies on this project!)
Second, it qualifies for the challenge at Our Creative Corner which was to make something 3D!
Third, it qualifies for the challenge at Basic Grey, which was a photo for inspiration. I used the colours and the swirls on my holder that reflected the room in the photo. The Basic Grey paper I used is on the inside of the butterflies wings.
And fourth, it qualifies for the BLING challenge at Practical Scrappers!!!
I made this butterfly 3D. The font is from my Storybook Cricut cartridge. The swirls are from my new swirls punch and the flower is from the Storybook cartridge too, as is the side view of the butterfly in one of the next photos.
Here is the paper pieced butterfly from Pink Cat Studio. The antennae were nasty to cut out!! UGH!!!
That is the first coaster box I have made - it was pretty easy and fast...but I did have trouble attaching the bottom...is there a trick??? Well, it wasn't hard, just there was excess ribbon from the bottom to the side holes....it looks ok, and is still functional so I left it. I wonder if I needed to put my holes closer to the edge?!?! Anyone have pointers??
Thanks for stopping by & having a peek!!! Have a great day!
