Spring Flowers

I'm enjoying winter very much right so I'm not yearning for spring. However, I simply fell in love with this spring thing cutie by Shirley

1. I followed the link to Brenda's blog for the butterfly box template and printed it on regular printer paper. Then, I traced it onto cardstock from A Walk In the Park by Echo Park and cut by hand.

2. After assembling the box, I chose a flower shape from the Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge and cut them with my Cricut Expression.

3. I found straws in my kitchen for the stems. I used a pencil to pre-curl half inch strips of green cardstock and then wrapped the straws. I used filler paper from Michael's to help arrange the flowers in the box.

4. Once again, Plantin Schoolbook came in handy for the butterfly cuts. The top, orange print butterfly is fussy cut from EP paper.

Thanks for stopping by!
