Spellbinders Butterflies

I just love layering with the Spellbinders Butterflies dies! You can create the illusion of the butterfly's wings fluttering by adhering the center portion of the butterfly and letting the wings pop out at you. I CASE'd this box from Cheryl at Life is Sweet. Cheryl has such great ideas. I had that box die for awhile now and I would have never thought of putting it together as she did. Thank you Cheryl for the great tutorial!
Here's the back of the box...
I fell in love with this color combination when I went into Island Scrapbooking and saw a card made by Tracy using the same color scheme (turquoise, brown, and green). I guess I couldn't those colors out of my head and decided to use them in this box.
Supplies used:
Spellbinders Butterflies dies
Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities
Cardstock- Bazzil
Printed cardstock- Stamping Station
Flowers- Prima
Crystal Stickers- Mark Richards
Gold paper- Hanko Designs
Friend sentiment- Sizzix Sizzlits Sentiment Set
Box Die- Sizzix XL dies
I made a coordinating treat bag using the same color scheme and same butterfly dies. I covered Hershey's Nuggets with the same paper used in the box and then embellished each one with a paper flower. The topper was made by cutting a scallop circle using Spellbinders and then folding it in half. I then used my gold glitter stickles to add some bling to the edges. The topper was secured by punching holes and adding a bow.
Have a great week!
