Butterfly Tag by Linda

Hello Crafter's

We have made it to the weekend again, hope you all have a good one!!

Linda is back with a fab butterfly tag.

Sadly this is Linda's last post for Artful days, I am sure you will agree she has given some great inspiration on how to craft with your boxes

Using a piece of the A5 botanical papers from Craft Emotions I covered a tag. I distressed around the tag with DI walnut stain.

 I then stapled the butterfly burlap wired ribbon to the top of the tag.

To decorate the tag I used the following element: wooden butterfly was added to the edge of the ribbon.  I then used the pink spiders web, maple leave, 3 mulberry flowers and adhered one of the bird embellishments inside the flower.  To finish off I added 3 of the stick pins.

So a big thanks to Linda for all her hard work in designing with the box. 

The October box is out now available to but whilst stocks last, 

Thanks for visiting and I hope you can leave a nice comment.

Box Card by Linda

Hello Crafter's 

Linda is back with a box card using the Goodie from September's box. 

 I first created the box using pearlescent card and made a card wrap which folds over the box.

 I used this beautiful paper which is from Craft Emotions A5 Botanical papers.

I cut down a piece of the cream hammered card to fit inside the box. I distressed with DI bundle sage and used a couple of stencils from my stash and stencilled through them with DI forest moss. I then cut out the fence using one of my die and adhered to the outside of the box. I then decorated the background with the birds, butterfly and roses. The butterfly trail I used the gold micro beads.

To finish off the front of the box card I added the metal butterfly charm and 4 pearl flat back gems.
