Things with wings...

Another exploding box... This one with a butterfly theme to participate in an "all things with wings" challenge, and to give as a birthday card/gift.

I chose Lime and White for this box - there really are some truly wonderful colours in the Bazzil paper range and it's sooooo hard to choose which ones to use!

The closed box and lid...

The edges of the box have been inked with VersaColor Lime, as have the edges of the DP. The DP was trimmed with a Creative Memories Corner Rounder. The butterflies are the ProvoCraft Cut & Emboss Butterfly set, and the small butterflies die. They have Diamond Stickles on their wings.

The White layer of the box...

These boxes are a lot of work as each panel is effectively a whole card on it's own... So now I have lots of ideas for upcoming cards!

The Lime layer of the box...

I decided to leave the centre of the box lime, and added a punched envelope with a tag for the birthday message.

The combined layers...

We used some ribbon to hold the inner layer up to get the pic - it was not part of the box itself.
