Butterfly Box with felt lining


Hey everyone, I hope you are well! I am here with a gift I made for my friend's special birthday. I found some gorgeous napkins in a supermarket that I couldn't bear to use just wiping up so I decided to use them to cover some plain wooden boxes :)






I put mod podge on the wood then carefully folded the napkin down onto the wood and tapped any air bubbles out gently. I then left it to dry. On the top was a heart shape void. I didn't want to see inside the box from the outside so I found some pretty paper that matched the butterflies and placed it in the top of the lid, then covered this with thick cardstock on the inside for strength. I varnished the outside of the box and the heart cut out with more mod podge and left to dry. I then added a butterfly cut from felt over the heart.

 Lastly I cut panels of felt in a similar colour to the butterflies on the outside and covered the inside.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thank you for looking and all your lovely comments :)

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
