Blinged Up Butterflies Gift Box

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I posted anything so I had to clear the cobwebs off the cobwebs on the blog this morning!

Part of this month’s Hero Arts Challenge is to bling up a project so I went a bit bling crazy on the butterflies for this gift box!

Blinged up Butterflies Gift Box
Hero Arts Stamps (Flower Dot Pattern & Antique Engravings)

To start with I made a small opened topped box – instructions on this post. Then I added white Label 8 die cuts to the front and back of the box. The Flower Dot Pattern was embossed in white on watercolor card and I applied broken china and tumbled glass distress inks.

The butterflies were embossed in white on vellum and blinged up with lots of Hero Arts gems.

Recently I’ve been busy with work and the craft fair so hopefully in December I’ll be back to blogging as usual again.
