Butterfly Box

Hello Crafteteers!

A quick blog entry for a gift box I finished today.  Thank goodness I am entering contests for crafty packaging and not for "Who has the tidiest craft room?" because if there were 500 entrants showing pics of their craft room and I was one of them, I believe I would place 500th.  It is a disaster in my crafty area!  Tsk tsk!

On to the gift box...

It is a busy time of year so in lieu of listing my steps, I think I will just list products used:

  • Just Rite- Filigree Leaves Background Stamp, Lace Medallion Labels, Samantha Walker Lace Hearts Dies, Enjoy The Day Vintage Labels Four
  • Kraft Journal- Kraft paper
  • Graphic 45- Birdsong paper, butterflies
  • Tim Holtz- Distress Stain in Antique Linen, Broken China Distress Marker
  • Gold Pearl pen, black card stock, ribbon, Stickles, yellow mini pearls
So there you have it!  My first decorated gift box.  Hope you liked it.  :)
Have a great evening!
Kathy Jo

This card is entered into the following challenges:
Craft room designer, Worst Organized Craft Room (just kidding)

Kraft Journal Ladies: if there is not enough Kraft paper on the box for the challenge, just tell me and I will delete it from the challenge.  :)


  1. Ohhh, yes, me LIKEY!!! LOVE that big heart in the BG, that fabby sentiment and beautiful bow with butterfly -- all wrapped up in one gorgeous package that will hold a lovely gift for someone and the packaging is a gift in and of itself, Kathy Jo!!!

  9. This is gorgeous! My craft room is forbidden by all! I can't even stand it myself. This time of year I am just scrambling from one project to the next among everything else, so it gets neglected!

    Thanks for sharing your gorgeous work with us at The Kraft Journal!

  10. Absolutely gorgeous!! I love the design and papers!! My craft room could give you a run for that 500th is scary messy!! Have a great day :)

  11. This is marvelous, Kathy Jo!! I think creative people work best amongst our supplies…lots of supplies…scattered everywhere. Or that's what I tell myself sometimes! We wouldn't have ever known your room was a mess by the beauty of this box!


Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment...I really appreciate it!
Have a happy crafty day!
