Now I know I didn’t use very Spring-y colors but just think of it as the warm, brown Earth waiting for the first shoots of color to bless us with. The original opening was a heart but I loved this butterfly silhouette from Boss Kut Designs so much I decided to change it. I just welded it over the heart.
The catch-all was cut in chipboard and another set of panels were cut for the top layer with patterned paper. I used my deep cut blade to cut the chipboard twice. To be honest, I probably didn’t need to cut it twice. It looked cut through the first time. And it cut like buttah! Nice and smooth. Now that I know my Gazzy will cut chipboard so easy, you will probably be seeing a lot more 3D projects. ^__^
I wanted to dress it up a bit but adding a lot of bling would have been bad as it will be used a lot. I was afraid jewels or pearls around the handle would come off with papers and such going in and out of it. I did manage to get a few blue pearls on the florette. I just love how it came out! It just sets the butterfly off perfectly! Of course, the brown butterfly is the left over chipboard. Did you think I would waste that little beauty?!?
Well, that’s all I have for today! Hope you enjoyed my project for today. Please come back and see what else I have for you this week. I appreciate your visit here today. Have a great day and happy crafting!
