Spring Bouquet Box

Spring is getting closer!  Even though winter storms are still in the area. Every once in a while we get some sunshine and warmer breezes!  I'm so ready for Spring!!  I was so excited to work with Paper Garden Projects new release Chalk It Up to Spring.

This kit is just filled with sunshine and warmth!!  As a new release at The DigiChick, it's on sale this weekend!  So be sure to check it out.

I used the papers from the kit to create the box, label, butterflies, flowers and leaves.  The box is cut file available in the Silhouette online store. This will make an awesome box to gift up some Easter wishes!!  The label was cut and embossed using Spellbinders Floral Ovals and Classic Ovals dies. 

The large butterfly in the front was cut and embossed using Spellbinders Butterfly Corner die and the large butterfly on the lid uses Spellbinders Butterflies to cut, emboss and paper piece it (I think this die may be retired now).  The small butterfly is punched using a Martha Stewart punch.

I created a cut file that I used to make the flowers.  I cut several layers of petals in varying sizes. I inked the edges and then manipulated the petals to get the look that I wanted.

I let one rose be open while the other is still young and closed a bit. I added some homemade stamens to the center. The lace is Jolee's Boutique and the trim on the lid is May Arts Ribbon.

Ahh, that looks like Spring!  I'm feeling warmer already!!
