Butterfly Box

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

This triangle box reminds me of my wedding planning days.  Looking for unique favors, I came across butterflies in boxes that can be released on your wedding day.  I opted not to use those even though I thought it would be beautiful. I felt bad for the butterflies! 

My original plan was to suspend the stamped, colored butterfly from the twine on the inside of the box.  However, when I tried that, the butterfly wasn't really visible through the glitter window.  Maybe next time instead of a glitter window I'll use clear cardstock and the butterfly would be more visible from the outside.


This photo really shows off the sparkle!
Have a great day!


Cardstock: PTI White, Aqua Mist
Stamps: PTI Butterfly Dreams
Ink: StazOn Brown
Other: Twine, Favor It Box Die, Triangle Dies, Prisma Glitter, Clear Packing Tape

  16. Beautiful boxes! Love them. My daughter actually had a butterfly release at the end of her garden wedding! The guests loved it, but it was a little hard on the butterflies-I don't recommend it!
