Surprise Box

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. It is very hot and humid here, so I am staying inside and keeping cool. I want to share a surprise box I made recently. I have seen quite a few of these and I wanted to try one. It can squash down flat to send in an envelope! Mine does not do that very well because of all the embellishments as you can see below! LOL!

I used my favorite embellishments which are flowers and rhinestones. I stamped the butterflies on patterned paper and fussy cut them. I added wire for their antennas. 

Here is my box that I tried to squash down!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope your day is full of good things!
