and here is the box...after i've worked my scrapping/altering magic on it! lol the whole box is now red with black stamped foliage, and turquiose and red flowers layered from punched card scraps and and gem stones...if you look really closely...i've even put a tiny black gem right in the centre of the flower gem! the ribbon is spotty so i love it...and the butterfly is painted chipboard layered with more punche cardstcok and more black gems
...this is the magnetic flap...just so you have a hint to look inside...i've added a loop of ribbon and a pretty bow...
the inside is blank so far...but i plan to make a little suprize to go right in this bright red space:
i'm really pleased how this has turned out...now i just wish i hadn't waited all those years!!! lol
