Asuka Studio: Blooming Butterfly Note Cards and Box Ensemble

For my second December's Asuka Studio DT works, I am featuring the Blooming Everyday Collection. This time I created a box and card ensemble that would be perfect for any occasion! By the way, I was inspired to create this box when I saw my friend, Shellye McDaniel, make one :)

**I receive products from Memory Palette Co. and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use.**

Blooming Butterfly Box Instructions

With a piece of 6 x 11-inch cream cardstock, we need to score with the short side (6-inch) at the top of the scoring board at 1-inch and 5-inch, all the way down.

Next, flip the cardstock with the long side on top and score at 1, 5, 6 and 10-inch.

Still in that position, cut each vertical scored lines up to the horizontal scored lines to create tabs on each side.

Adhere the tabs with the E-Z Runner Grand with E-Z Grand Ultra Strong Refill, assemble the box.

Embellishing the Box Top and Cards

Now for the fun part - embellishing! Die-cut a butterfly and stencil through the die with ink to highlight the details.

Die-cut a decorative oval shape with vellum. Add MP-59128 Rhinestone Clear to areas shown.

I also edge the square layers with ink - same with ink as the butterfly die cut. MP-58890 12x12 Blooming Everyday Memories Patterned Paper was used for two of the square layers.

For the vellum die cut, I used E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine. It's perfect for vellum! For the butterfly, I use Adhesive Lines and I gently curled the wings for dimension.

The bottom layer was adhered using E-Z Runner® Grand with E-Z Grand Ultra Strong Refill. The top two layers also adhered the same way but to attach onto the box, I wanted dimension so I used Crafty Foam Tape.

For the 3 7/8-inch square note cards, I did the same exact thing when embellishing with the exception of using different color rhinestones. A great gift to give someone :)
