A butterfly always needs to be fluttering by the flowers.

A post comment: I have used the heat gun to adhere all the flowers etc. This makes life very easy and quick...but you got to watch out for those hairy fairy tails...I call can not see them with the naked eye...well at least I can't. So clean them as soon as you see them...not a job for later! Use tweezers to get them out. The camera picks them up very well. I had to take the shots 3 times and still had the hairy fairy

Now for the know how instructions for this folder.
Tips on how to make flowers using the flower shaping tool kit HERE 
This folder when completed, measures 23.5 cm x 23.5 cm x 6.5 cm.
Make the base folder using the tan card stock, 23.5 cm (front)- 6.5 cm (spine) -23.5 cm (back). Make a box for the inside of folder measurements, 16.5 cm x 16.5 cm - 3cm deep. Make the box lid measuring, 1.5 cm - 16.5 cm - 3.2 cm- 3cm x 16.8 cm. Using the design paper from the paper pad, cover the outer and inner of the folder, sides of box, box lid inside and out. Use the masks and gesso to decorate the inside spine, box and lid. Distress all the edges of the papers before adhering to the folder and box base. Cut a piece of cardboard to fit inside the box base, 16.4 cm x 16.4 cm, this will be the base for your mixed media work.  Make a mask using the eyelet die and use this with gesso to give the cardboard base a white background. Use the eyelet frame for the back ground behind the dress. Raise the frame by adhering cardboard to the back of the frame. Stamp and cut the shoe. Cutting extra to make chipboard from the shoe. Stamp and die cut the dress x 3. Cut away the bodice and adhere the dress together so the skirt will be fuller. Add color and stickles to the shoe and dress. Adhere in place. Add the netting and ribbon to the dress waist. Make the flowers and adhere in place as seen in the photo. For the front lid of the box: make the following, eyelet frame, shoe card and flowers then add color to these. For the shoe card, use both shoe stamps, one for the out side and the other for the inside of the card. Make the card then adhere to the box lid on top of the oval die cut.(see the close up photo) When adding the flowers, use them as a stop for the opening of the card. Adhere in place as shown in the close ups. Adhere the box and box lid to the folder. Adding the ribbon ties as you go. Once the box is attached you can further decorate the lid and side of the box with the flowers. The photo on the folder is been given height by backing it with cardboard. Make the flowers and decorate the corners of the photo. Stamp and die cut the butterfly, dress hanger and then adhere in their place as shown. The front of the folder: make the flowers, shoe, dress and butterfly. Arrange and adhere. With the glue gun, adhere the ribbons in place under the flowers. Cut enough ribbon to make a large double bow, using 2 colors and 2 lengths for each tie.

  1. WOW this is a show stopper!! hugsxx

  2. Wow Sussi! This is a fairy tale project fit for only a princess! Such beautiful detail work and all those stunning flowers! You have outdone yourself...simply amazing!

  3. I so LOVE your flowers! You've used the same dies as everyone else, but how you've chosen your layers and shaped the fibers is several steps higher. Choosing to use just one layer of the Mum die really drew my attention. Beautiful! I like that other flowers appear to be opening buds, rather than full blooms. Again, beautiful! Thanks for creating this gorgeous project! Well done!

  4. Oh my word this is absolutely out of this world amazing Ms. Sussi P!! Just look at all that embossing and the gorgeous flowers! I love to pop in to see what you're up to!! Hugs, Anne
