Beautiful Butterfly Box -- a Crafter's Companion Creation

I love Crafter's Companion products -- especially their dies, papers, inks, and the new double sided dies, so when I saw they were having a design team call, I just couldn't let it go by without making something for it and trying for the team.  I know there will be TONS of incredible talent, but you never know what they are looking for.  Making they are looking for great colorists (I have good coloring skills), maybe they are looking for people who can devote plenty of time to the Crafter's Companion team (I'm retired. I can do that!), maybe they they are looking for  folks who can use a foil press machine (have one), or maybe they are looking for people, just like me, who love the brand name.  Sara Davies could sell me almost anything.  I love her style and enthusiasm!

For the DT call, I decided to use products from the new Nature's Garden Beautiful Butterfly Collection, and a double sided box.  I can't get enough of the double sided boxes.  They go together so nicely, with very little creasing, gluing or fuss.  And the Nature's Garden Collection is beautiful.  Check it out for yourself:

That big bold butterfly is a 3 layered butterfly called the Statement Butterfly. It is big!  It measures nearly 5 inches across!  I placed it on the Intricate Trellis.  All the papers and dies are from the Nature's Garden Beautiful Butterfly Collection.  Papers are 12x12.

The double sided box that I used is the largest of the 2 rectangle boxes in the set.  I also used the double sided cutting plates that are  needed for these dies and ran them through my Gemini cutting machine. I glued the box together with a Crafter's Companion Extra   Strong Glue Tape Pen.

Here's another look at the  box and the butterfly:

Isn't it a lovely collection?  The gold foil paper is not part of the collection, but it is from Crafter's Companion.  It is Gold Mirri card, and it die cuts wonderfully!

If you haven't shopped for Crafter's Companion products, there is a Crafter's Companion in the US, but also in the UK and Europe. You    can also shop Crafter's Companion on HSN (where I purchased this collection).

Crafter's Companion has various Facebook groups you can share your works in and find tons of inspiration in, including I'm a Crafter's Companion, Crafter's Companion Fan Club, and Fans of Crafter's Companion on HSN. Check them out and join in the fun!
