Hello Little Butterfly

Hello, I have been loving making the exploding boxes so here is another exploding Box with a Mini Easel Card on top. This time I have made a box for my Mum for Mother's Day. I have used Hello Little Butterfly from magnolia. I just adore Tilda.

I have used the new paper range from Kaisercraft 'Magnolia Grove'. This paper is just stunning.
I have used Pink & White flowers from Kaisercraft flower range. I used the cuttlebug to cut some leaves to add to the flowers.

I have used some cream lace all the way around the lid.
I have added a pink bow & a butterfly charm (from Inky Impressions) to the left corner.

On each of the butterflies I have added a pink half pearl from Inky Impressions.
I have also place a Happy Mother's Day sentiment on top.

To make the most of all the room in this box I have put a card under the lid for some writing.

Inside the box I have added a extra layer of cardstock to give it a bit more . So on top I have place tags on each flap.

I have added butterflies on plastic strips to give a floating look.

I have made little cards for each flap on the bottom. You could write something or add some photos.

Inside look of the little cards. I have added a bow & flower to the top of each little card.

I have place two small flowers on each tag.

All the flowers have been glittered using some stickles.
Also have put stickles on each of the butterflies.

Here is a photo of both inside & lid. I am very happy with the way this exploding box turned out & I hope my Mum like it (sure she will).

I will be entering my exploding box card into the following challenges:

All the best
