Botanical Butterfly Reinforced Gift Box & Butterfly Elements

This gorgeous little box was made using free products from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration Brochure which goes live tomorrow alongside Stampin' Up!s new Spring/Summer Catalogue.

The Sale-A-Bration Brochure carries an assortment of products which may be selected as free items for every £45 (excluding shipping costs) that you spend.   There is no limit - for every £45 you spend, choose another free product.   You can earn even bigger rewards (on some free high end products) when you spend £90 on an order (excluding shipping costs).

Botanical Butterfly DSP (free with a spend of £45 from 3rd January - 31 March)

I think the 12 x 12 papers from this pack of Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Papers are really pretty and I wanted to showcase one of the designs by making a reinforced gift box.



There are other designs among the papers which are illustrated by butterflies that coordinate with the new Butterfly Duet Punch, so naturally I just had to punch one out to add some dimension to my box.



Butterfly Elements (free with a spend of £45 from 3rd January - 31 March) 

I added further dimension by mounting my punched butterfly onto a wooden Butterfly Element before adhering both to my circle topper.  The wooden Butterfly Elements are also among an assortment of products which can be yours free if you spend £45 (excluding shipping costs) on an order.



For my box you will need :-

For the Lid :  Designer Series Paper measuring 7  3/8" x 7  3/8" square
Score @ 1 1/8" and 2 1/4" inches on each side

For the Base: Card stock measuring 7  7/8" x 7  7/8" square
Score @ 1 1/4" & 2 1/2" on each side

Remove the three outer squares on each piece as per the illustration below and snip to the second scoreline as per the dashed line where shown.



The video below for one of my previous projects, will show you how to cut and assemble this type of reinforced box. Just follow the instructions given on the video (at 6.01 minutes):-


I do hope you like my sophisticated little butterfly box created using some pretty special free products which can be yours from tomorrow right through to 31st March.

Thanks for looking and I hope you will pop back tomorrow when the Sale-A-Bration promotion goes live - how exciting !!   See you then.

Bye for now.
