Butterfly Thinlits and the Curvy Keepsake Box

Good morning everyone! I've spent the week getting ready for a craft sale that was scheduled for today. And then, late yesterday, I got word that they decided to cancel it because of the weather. I am glad on one hand because I didn't want to deal with the cold rain. But, now I have lots of things I made and I don't know what I'm going to do with them! Oh well, I will figure it out I guess...

One of the things I made are these adorable Butterfly Curvy Keepsake Boxes. I've had this idea in my head for months now. I finally got the Butterfly Thinlits last week and couldn't wait to make them! 

Butterfly Thinlits, Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit, Butterfly Basics, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, White Vellum, White Bakers Twine, Strawberry Slush Bakers twine, Coastal Cabala Bakers Twine


 I filled them with a variety of Hershey’s candy. I bought a giant bag of the mixed spring chocolate... YUM! 
 I also used my circle mask and the same color Stampin’ Write Markers to add the polkadots to the side of the boxes. I love this technique. All you do is outline the circle and then scribble inside it!! 

EDITED:
I had so many emails about this project, I decided I needed to make a video! Enjoy!

  4. I am jumping in the bandwagon with Lorraine to ask that you please, please share how you attached the butterflies to the box. I bet there are tons of people that would like to know. These are just gorgeous and I'd love to make them for a bridal luncheon for my niece. Thanks!!
