I've been watching a little too much You Tube!! I get sucked into watching one video, which leads to me to another and another and another....Well, after watching this one on making paper roses using Cricut cuts, I was hooked on making them myself!! You'll probably see a few of my projects include these in the future. I already have a few on reserve for the near future as well.
We were stuck inside ALL weekend with icy weather. Also, the husband contracted a stomach bug, which was probably the result of many many hospital visits for our parishioners recently. It seems everyone is sick!! I was armed with a can of Lysol and quarantined him to the bedroom. I even made him text me if he needed something. I'm horrible, I know! I hope the rest of us avoid getting it!!
Anyway, the girls and I were going stir crazy so I took out my Martha Stewart Score Board and went to her website. I found this box recipe and combined it with roses to come up with this girly gift box:
I cannot remember what I cut this butterfly at, maybe 4"? Something tells me I cut it bigger though, and I used the Sentimentals cartridge for it. I used George and Basic Shapes for the roses as the video suggested and I used stickles for some bling. I also used a border punch for the cover of the box.
I really wish I had thicker ribbon for this! I think it would have added so much!! Anyway, I hope you like this as much as I enjoyed making it. I'm glad to say that my husband was back to work this morning and is feeling much better. I hope you are all able to avoid the nasty sicknesses of winter!! :)
