Explosion Box

Good morning Cheery Lynn fans!  It's Tuesday and time for a fun project I created using some of my favorite Cheery Lynn Dies!  When I started creating this box I didn't realize how much fun I was having until I was all through! I just kept adding to it and I'm so happy with the results.  This project is a great gift for anyone and a gorgeous little decoration! When you untie the ribbon and take the lid off this little box explodes with butterflies flying around the flowers!  I made the centers of the flowers from pink clay and a push mold.  The butterflies are suspended with strips of acetate which makes the butterflies jiggle and look like they are hoovering over the flowers.

 Cheery Lynn dies used: Leaf
Exotic Butterfly Small #2
Large Rose
Lace Corner Deco F
Sweet Williams
Cherry Blossom

Additional supplies:
Adhesive Gems- Bo Bunny
Hand made Clay Flower Centers - Debbie Sherman
Clay- Sculpey
ink - Colorbox
Patterned Paper KandCompany
Cardstock - Bazzil
