Butterfly Trifold) and decided to try it. It's a bit tricky but SOOOO worth it for the 'WOW' factor! Check out this tutorial: Half Cut Cards For another blog with a good sample: Click Here and scroll down to 'January Club Project'. I did the embossing after I cut the butterfly. It made it a little easier to figure out which side I wanted the dots to be raised on that way.
I made a few more cards - but we'll save those for later. I wouldn't want to overwhelm you. ;)

For one tote I made a tissue paper flower and added a pink pearl brad. For the other I used a stamped butterfly from Amy Butler.

I added ribbon for the closure. The box measures 5x7. I did have to buy some special glue that's a lot like Modge Podge- only better. I'm so pleased with the way it turned out! I can't wait to go back and get the pink and brown Cherry blossom print next.

The patterned paper is from the Wisteria line of Basic Grey. I thought the pattern fit perfectly! The dark purple paper I embossed (a little more than half way down) with the Morocaan Screen folder. I then cut the bottom with some of my old decorative edged scissors. I thought this decorative edge reminded me most of the tops of the windows. I chose this sketch from an old Mojo Monday sketch because the three rectangles all reminded me of the windows in Moroccan architecture. I didn't have anything 'exact' but I used some Spellbinders dies. The flourish was from that $5 MMBI stamp set I bought recently. I heat embossed in gold. I also only stamped and embossed the last two flourishes from a long border stamp in that set. I mounted everything on a card base of Almost Amethyst.

The bottom is PTI grid paper. I added some silver stickles to the center of the flowers. I used pink and silver rhinestones for the centers of the flowers. I also ran the green cardstock throught my cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder.

here and cut 4 circles then pulled the paper into two pieces. I used one of the coordinating fabric covered brads to hold it all together in the center.
