A Boxful of Beautiful Bermuda Bay & Bold Butterflies


Hello and welcome to my new Blog !


I have been asked by many of my Facebook followers whether I have a Blog and finally decided to take the plunge and dive into the world of Blogging.  I have to send a very grateful thanks to my wonderful friend Lea Denton who has spent a great deal of her free time making this Blog a reality for me.  Without her, there would be no Blog – as I am a technical numpty !!!  
  
Please take the time to visit Lea’s own wonderful Blog called “The Crafty Spark” http://www.thecraftyspark.co.uk/ It’s packed full of her brilliant projects.   Like me, Lea also sells kits of her various projects and more besides !!

I do hope you will pop by periodically to see what I have been up to.






Today's box is a monochromatic one which showcases the stunning Stampin' Up! colour Bermuda Bay and how co-ordinating cardstock, designer series papers and ink can produce a stunningly pretty gift box.

  • The box is a fold flat box which measures 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches and is 1 1/4 inches deep.  So a decent sized box.
  • I have applied Bermuda Bay coloured paper from the  Cherry on Top Designer Series Paperstack of 6 x 6 papers.
  • I stamped out a Butterfly from the gorgeous Polymer Stamp Set called Watercolour Wings
  •  I then die cut it using the Bold Butterfly framelits.  The smaller intricate die cut which I have layered on top is also one of the Bold Butterfly framelits.

Here is the recipe !!    

Cardstock :  9 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches
Designer Series Paper :  2 strips of 1 1/8 x 4 1/4 (inches) for the sides
                                    2 pieces of 4 1/8 x 2 7/8 (inches)  for the top and bottom

Score on long side :   1 /4, 4 1/2, 5 3/4 and 9 (inches)
Score on the Short side:  3/4, 2, 6 1/4 and 7 1/2 (inches)
