This bella is a flutter for you!

>> Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Ok, so this was totally supposed to post yesterday! No idea what happened there! haha!

When trying to think of a fun project to display for the bella club meeting i belong to with Funkie Munkie Scraps, i immediately thought of Butterflyabella and using My Time Made Easy's All A Flutter template!
I mean the 2 just go hand in hand together so well!!!



First i used my SCAL to cut out the All A Flutter template. Perhaps i should have scaled it down a weeeeeee bit. Bella looks a smidgen small haha. You'd think i had used the mini butterflyabella that comes with her, but no. I just made the All A Flutter box THAT big! I love the option of making things so large though when i can use a 12x12 mat instead of just printing on 8.5 x11 paper. ;)

What do i love about this template? Well a lot of things really! The cost, a mere 5 dollars.
Cuteness factor - way high. Easy to put together. But one of the best things... the easy to put together and cutness factor work with each other in a way that it's a no brainer! Not sure that makes sense, but what i mean is, you can gussy it up to the high heavens, and it's definitely amazing, but you can also stick to it's basics and it's still a super d duper cute project. Which means if you are using it for a gift, it can be quick and easy with minimal products making it a great packaging and then YOU look good, but it really was a sinch. This is kinda a must when you are a busy crafter! People expect your handmade gifts, and sometimes, you just dont have the time to make them! So viola - the All A Flutter Box is just perfect!


For this project, i've decided to fill it with some cards (as you will see above. Depending on where you choose to position your base or basket like compartment of the template, you can either make your cards very visible or tucked away nicely inside. The choice is up to you!

Here is a closeup of Ms Butterflyabella...

I have simply stamped out the image, colored is and then roughly cut around it before adhering it directly to the All A Flutter box.

Here is a close up of the cards i've made to go inside the butterfly...



It is a very simple card layout, but they were made entirely from scraps from when i put the All A Flutter butterfly together. My first card even had the cardbase out of the scraps! :) You gotta love that! The sentiment is also from stamping bella.
