Butterfly jewelry box with mini glue dot rim

This jewelry box is so pretty! I saw a version of this - pink and with First Edition dsp - on the Stampin' Up! cruise to Alaska last year. SU! Co-founder Shelli Gardner demonstrated it. It's been in my head for a year, as I continued to save the inside cardboard rims of my Mini Glue Dots. I covered my box with Beau Chateau dsp, then stamped the frame from Forever Young in Marina Mist ink. I diecut the butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies die for the Big Shot (using First Edition dsp), and spread Tombow Liquid Adhesive around the butterfly to hold on Silver Glass Glitter for bling, along with a silver glimmer brad. The sentiment is from Teeny, Tiny Wishes, sponged around with Marina Mist ink. And just more than an inch of pleated satin ribbon, held on with Sticky Strip, holds the lid to the base, making it easy to open and close.

Here's how it looks inside. I could've done a nicer job (you always notice in the close-up photo) trimming the strip of designer paper that lines the inside of the rim, as well as the outside. I used more liquid adhesive and chunky glitter around the bottom rim. The designer paper was punched with the 2-1/2" circle punch and adhered to the same size Marina Mist card stock circle for more support.
Those in my American Ink group who qualified for our American Ink Rewards (AIR) got to make this project a week ago.
