It's Butterflies at Magnolia Forever,

Hi guys, over at Magnolia Forever we have a fab challenge for you
To use Butterflies,
well me being me, I was in the mood for something a little different, so I made this,

All in all there are five butterflies on this project lol,
I stamped Tilda with Daffodil and masked her with a fence stamp, when coloured I fussy cut them out and added a small die cut butterfly onto the fence,

The bird boxes had no stands so i made my own making a long box shape by cutting two pieces of card,
1x8cm long
 and 
1x6cm, both 9 cm wide. 
 score with your scoreboard, (I used my cm Scor-Pal) every 2cm along the length leaving,1cm from the end length ways for a flap to add the glue too,  at the same time score in 2 cm from both ends width ways for the top and bottom, 
snip the score lines down to the 2 cm score line for the top and bottom so the edges fold flat and make a box shape as shown,



Before making up the boxes and bases I added some DP from the House of Roses collection from Lemon craft from Scrap and craft to the bird box templates and the bases I made,

I made the roof section by cutting a Magnolia border die and layered them as shown on the above picture, then I added a couple of flowers and a Butterfly on the outer sides, this is a Magnolia stamp which i coloured and fussy cut out,
Again I used a die cut for the smaller butterfly on the front,

Tilda with summer pants is again coloured with my distress re-inkers and fussy cut out, I added some Spanish moss and some more flowers plus a holly leaf die and grass die from my stash,
the birds are two different dies too, I used a piece of  a skewer for the birds to perch on at the front of their boxes,
Here is the other side of the second bird box which again has a butterfly on and i also coloured a Magnolia tree stamp, fussy cut out out and added a Noor Butterfly  die on the tree stump too,
Flowers are from Sweet Lilac,
I made the base by cutting a piece of chipboard, covering it with chalk paint, when dry i added some texture sand over the top, let that dry then went over again with the chalk paint,

Full view again,
Hope you'll join us with your butterfly creations,
