Exploding Box: Happy Birthday w/Red Butterflies by kendravixie Exploding Box: Happy Birthday w/Red Butterflies by kendravixie
A friend's mother is about to celebrate her 65th birthday, and I created this box to house some photos (photos not currently pasted in).

Box opens up to reveal butterflies on acetate so they appear "floating" in the box.

The rhinestones are meant to look like cats' paws, as the photos inside the box will be of their pet cats.

Materials:
Union Square paper from My Mind's Eye
Stamps from Kaisercraft Secret Bird Society
Kaisercraft Black pearls and Red rhinestones
Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink
Distress Ink blending tool
Versamark Ink
Tiim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous Mariposa
Detail Clear Zing Embossing Powder
Inkadinkado Powder tool
I-Bond Hot Glue Gun
Kaisercraft Paper blooms
Ranger Industries Diamond Stickles
Value Craft red butterflies
Silhouette Cameo

Shapes downloaded from the Silhouette America online store.

Not shown: Happy birthday stamped greeting, personal photos of pets.

Exploding Box: Happy Birthday w/Red Butterflies by =kendravixie possesses a beautiful composition of textures and colors, with many little details that make it stand out: the delicacy of the petals, the glitter that looks like dew, the butterflies that appear to be flying and even the little crystals that form paws. What a beautiful gift to receive! ( Featured by Talty )
