A Butterfly Bag

Hi all!!  I hope everyone had a good weekend!

I certainly did!  I went to see OVO, the Cirque du Soleil show, and it was fantabulous!!!  If you have not seen a Cirque show, you just have to!!   The next time you have the opportunity to see one, I strongly encourage you to go.  You will come out with a smile, once you’ve lifted your jaw off the floor that is!! You will be in awe of the performers, I guarantee you!!   I have seen 5 different Cirque performances and I have enjoyed them all immensely. Really.

O.k  now for today’s craft. Or should I say yesterdays? Well, it was for the technique lover’s challenge on SCS on Monday, which was to make this cute butterfly bag/box.  The template is available hereQbee was so kind to share it and it is not a difficult one, so go get it, and give it a try!

I traced the template onto cardstock, since my dang printer won’t let me print directly onto cs.  Then I traced just the butterfly front onto a double piece of dp (so I would only have to cut once) and then adhered them to the front and back.   I don’t have any butterfly punches or die cuts, so I free hand drew my accessory butterflies, cut them out and popped them on.  I added a few gems, and that was it.   I like how it turned out. I think it will be a teacher gift, with a couple of pampering items tucked inside.  What do you think?

Well, I’m off to bed!  It’s another late night for me…So glad you stopped by, I hope you’re inspired!
