Butterfly Birthday Box

ETA: I realize I am VERY late with my SFYTT. I will be posting it soon!!!
Since I have so much spare time on my hands, I volunteered to be in charge of making all of the Primary teachers at church a little something for their birthdays. Surprisingly, there was only one birthday last week, so I sat down Saturday night to whip something up so that I could give it to her at church. When I am pressed for time, I always use one of my *go-to* boxes or bags to eliminate the guess work and I can get down to the fun part: EMBELLISHING!



Since I don't know this particular ladie's tastes or color preferences, I decided to just go bright and fun. I thought the papers and colors seemed fitting for a birthday. I used the butterfly die and some yummy felt to create some fun embellishments.




I wanted to add a little something *extra* to the paper, so I added some crystal stickles to a few of the polka dots on the side panels.

The sentiments are from this set and the tiny butterfly image is from this set. The butterfly die coordinates with the butterfly set, which is always great! I am seriously in love with all of PTI coordinating stamps and dies. Like I mentioned before, I am late with my SFYTT, but I am working on it! Thanks for fluttering by!
