Gorgeous Butterfly GIFT BOX – Floral Phrases

Hi my Stampin’ Friends,

so we have only fourteen more days of Sale-a-Bration now which makes me feel sad!  That means I soon won’t be able to choose FREE products when I place my orders of £45 or more.  I just love all the FREE GIFTS I have received during Sale-a-Bration.  All my customers have really enjoyed choosing their FREE Sale-a-Bration Gifts too!

That ALSO means that anyone who would like to join only has thirteen more days to take up the Stampin’ Up Joining Offer and choosing up to £223 worth of crafting products for the AMAZING price of only £99.  (All details in my right hand side bar).  

I am so super excited to be sharing my gorgeous Butterfly Gift Box with you all today.  From the moment I designed it I so wanted to share it.  I took my inspiration from the main Stampin’ Up! Catalogue when I saw a stamped design using the Floral Phrases Stamp Set displayed in a picture frame on Page 76.

I could see that I could make it into a Gift Box instead with a Lid and add my Layering Squares Dies in the centre. My Butterfly inspiration was a last minute thing, but WOW, it does make the Box FABULOUS and the idea to cut out that HUGE Butterfly using my FREE Sale-a-Bration Glimmer Paper, oh my goodness, I cannot contain my excitement!!!!!  I had one of those ca-ching moments, you might say!  

It was so easy to make the Box as I show in my video and Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry are my most favourite Stampin’ Up colours.  I couldn’t believe I had never used this Large Butterfly Die before! Oh my goodness it is so gorgeous! I absolutely LOVE it, can you tell?  

Anyway in order to make this design I had to work out some maths first and then decide how deep I wanted my Gift Box to be.  You can certainly fit lots of gifts and treats inside this Box, perfect!  I love the Layering Squares Framelits Dies too as they give the Box an elegant appeal.

The FREE Sale-a-Bration Glimmer Paper is so luscious that I had just had to place another order so I could choose some more of it. So sparkly for lots of my projects.

Its fabulous that I have made great use of the stamped images from the Floral Phrases Stamp Set too, but whilst I was photographing these Boxes I was in two minds whether to add extra shimmer in the form of my Clear Wink of Stella.  

I hope you enjoyed this project and video tutorial.  Please do use the hostess code to get free product (hostess code shown at the top right hand corner of this post).  If your order is over £150, please do not use this code as you become the hostess and get the Rewards.

    Hi Sandra
    I love this georgious elegant box. You are such a clever crafter. I am sure I gonna make it.
    I have a post in my email box called Sandra, and there I store all your emails so I can find them when I am ready to go on crafting. As you I have been a crafter from early days. I begun making clothes for my dolls about five years ages. I am 69 now. Working with paper begun when I got my first grandchild, she is 12 now.
    It was when I saw a note in a store about a two hour class of how to make cards it all begun.
    From there and forwards I have been a better crafter by practising.
    I met a lovely lady at a fair in Jersey some years ago, she was a crafter. We gegun talking and she was very kind to tell me where I could get ideas like you tube and adresses where to buy items.
    She also invitet me to her home so I could see her crafting room.
    So Sandra, I am so happy that I found your products and to be a follower to you page.
    I am not very pleast with my writing in english, I am sure it is a lot of wrong writing, but I hope you will understand the meening. Love from Thove xx

      Hello Thove, oh thank you so much for your wonderful comments. You have certainly made my day and your English is very good indeed. Yes paper crafting is a very therapeutic hobby. I am really enjoying being creative but I have to say it is has taken me about a year to learn how to make boxes and I feel that I am getting better and better. I used to make lots of things as a child and have taken up so many crafts during my lifetime. My Butterfly Gift Box was truly inspired by the Stampin’ Up Catalogue, as I say in my video. My subscribers have made so many lovely comments about my Boxes I am so happy. The fact you have a folder with my name on is AMAZING. Thank you again and lots of crafty hugs with love from SANDRA xx
