To begin, cut two of the CottageCutz Bella Butterfly (Profile). To get this old vintage rose color, I used a light gray cardstock and distress inked it with Victorian Velvet distress ink. Isn't it cool! Then paint the two butterfly pieces with glitter glue and sprinkle with plain white Martha Stewart glitter. Let dry and put the two pieces together with pop dots. You can shape the wings once it's dry to look like this. The Laughing Cow Cheese box was painted with two coats of white acrylic paint. None of the labels were removed. The paint covers those labels nicely so you do not see them.
For the roses, I used a medium flower punch for the small roses and a "Whale of a Punch" flower for the large rose. I punched them out on the light gray cardstock and distressed with Victorian Velvet distress ink. They were painted with crystal effects and sprinkled with Martha Stewart Coarse Glitter. The Bella Springtime Wreath was cut from the gray cardstock as well and distressed on the outer edges then attached to the largest Spellbinders Nested Circle die cut. This was attached to the largest Spellbinders Nested Scallop Circle die cut and attached to the top of the box.
To decorate around the outer edge use tinsel trim which can be purchased at Michael's. The Roses have been mounted on top of the Bella Leafy Branch. Pearls were added to the scallops around the die cut.
WOW! How fabulous! Very nicely done. Great idea...tfs...
Beautiful, Carol. I love how you achieved the vintage rose color. I have some Laughing Cow cheese boxes in my refrigerator right now. Need to recycle when they are empty. The tinsel is wonderful, too.
Very nice gift indeed!
Have a great weekend. Hope you're not suffering with the heat.
How fun and BEAUTIFUL! Carol, I love that you do something so different with each creation. The dies you have selected are beautiful, of course, and the color theme is very pretty! LOVE how you transformed that grey cardstock, Carol. The shading is beautiful. As well as the choices of glitters - they always wow me hahaha - will we ever grow up? Or always be little girls who like the bling? Beautiful project. I have never seen that product (of course, have not been in a grocery store for a year) so I had no idea how large it was until you mentioned putting a gift card into it. LOVELY gift presentation for sure. hugs, de
Gorgeous flowers and butterfly! Just love the added touch of sparkle too :) Fabulous creations!
what a gorgeous butterfly and card Carol, stunning dies too.
Just beautiful! Love the roses!
Beautiful and I am totally in love with the sparkle
A WOW gift indeed! You are definitely the Queen of altered boxes! I don't believe anyone does them as beautifully as you do!
Not sure how I missed this post! Lovely idea starting with grey cardstock and building from there! Let's make a flower like this in Jack. ok? I like the idea of paining the petals with Crystal Effects - I need to try that too. You are so smart - I have a few of the cheese boxes left from the project I cased you on before - I may just try this over the weekend. Lovely creation my sweet friend. Hugz - lots of them!
Oh, I love when you do up the cheese boxes! :) they are always gorgeous. Such pretty die cuts you used on here!
OH My! This is stunning!!! I will never look at my laughing cow cheese boxes the same... because they will now be kept to alter!! The flowers you made are absolutely over-the-moon gorgeous!!! I was surprised to read they are punches. You know how to work your magic on them! And the die cuts are super elegant...love that layered butterfly!
