Butterfly Box Tutorial

Hello Your Next Stamp Fans!!

Kendra here, from Luv 2 Scrap N’ Make Cards to share a tutorial with you!

I am featuring the awesome Butterfly Gift Box Die!!

I absolutely LOVE creating 3D projects, they make such special gifts!  And are so fun to fill with special little treasures!!

I am going to share with you today, how to create these cute little boxes!

Grab a few supplies:

Butterfly Gift Box Die

Die Cutting Machine

Paper (Hugs and Kisses)

Stamps (Garden Phoebe for sentiment)

Ink (Cherry Blossom and Black Olive)

I decided to use a piece of pattern paper to create my box, which is from the Hugs and Kisses paper pad.  Grab two pieces of paper and run them each through a die cut machine using the box die.

Fold on appropriate scored lines.

It should look something like this:

Now begin assembling the box!  But before I started, I decided to ink the edges with Cherry Blossom ink first!

Attach the two die-cut box pieces together, by adding adhesive to the pattern side of the end tabs.

I circled the flap in the photo above to show where the tape goes, as it may be hard to tell in the photo.  Each end tab needs adhesive added to it to put the box together.

Then connect one adhesive tab to the other die cut piece, to look like this…

Then fold around the box and add the other flap to the inside, to complete the box…

Now to enclose the bottom!!

For the bottom, add adhesive to the pattern side of two of the flaps across from each other and then to the non-pattern side of the opposite two!

As the photo shows, the adhesive pattern side is down already and the box is in a square shape.  Adhere them  to each other where they overlap and then fold the other two down.

Set the box on your table and reach inside to push the flaps together more, if you like.

Oh so fun!!

Now to die cut the butterfly!!!  Like the other box I created previously, I decided to grab some glittery paper!!  As I love glitter!!

Die cut each butterfly piece once!

Use your scissors to slightly cut the slit open on each butterfly.

Add glue to the glittery side (the pretty side) of the rounded part of the die-cut butterfly. Adhere it to the inside of the box flap, lining it up so the slit is just above the top of the flap.

Do the same to the second wing, attaching it to the flap across from the flap the first butterfly is adhered to.

Hold the box so the front is facing you.   Then carefully run the back and front flaps (the ones without butterflies) in your fingers to give them a slight rounded bend, being careful not to crease the paper.

Then fold in the rounded back flap first, then the front.
Piece together the butterfly flaps, by bringing the left wing/flap above the right wing/flap and sliding the two slits into each other.
The finished top:
So fun!  So glittery!!  I love it!!
The box is perfect just the way it is, but if you’d like, you can add embellishments, images and/or sentiments to it!
Which is what I did!  I ended up die-cutting the banner from the Cool Tag Two Patterns Die Set.  I then stamped the ‘you make me smile’ sentiment from the Garden Phoebe stamp set in the center.
I added a Gumdrop on each side of the sentiment!!
A cute package, sure to put a smile on someone’s face!!
I hope I have inspired you to create some of your own Butterfly Boxes!!  They are so easy to create with this die!!!
Have a lovely day!!

Stand-Up Card

Hello Your Next Stamp Fans!!

Kendra here, from Luv 2 Scrap N’ Make Cards to share another tutorial with you using the Half Circle Flip Die Set!

If you missed me sharing how to create a fun Flip-It card using the set, you can find it here.

Today I am sharing an alternate use for it!  You can also use this die set to create a fun stand-up cards as well!!

Once again I started by creating my A2 card base. (8 1/2″ x  5 1/2″) Scored at 4 1/4″.

Lay down card base and find the center of the left half of the card base, which is 2 1/8″.


Similar to the Flip-It card, I decided to use the larger of the two dies from the Half Circle Flip Die Set.  As I really like that you can use the Circles with Stitching and Piercing Marks Die Set with it.

This is where the tutorial slightly changes from the Flip-It, when you place your cardstock in your die cutting machine, place the die just over the marks you created, with the circle facing to the right!


Run the die through your machine.

Once you take it out, fold the left side over to the right on the score line, like a normal card.

The you will fold along the score lines the die created, folding the piece so that is folds inside.  So that the circle will “stand up”!  Like this….


Now you are ready to decorate your fun card!!

Here is my finished card:


I used the super adorable new Christmas Delivery stamp for my main image!!  I just love this sweet image!

I added some Gumdrops to the “inside” of the card, so that it would help keep the “stand-up” portion up.

I stamped the “Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas” to the inside of my card, which is part of the Santa’s Magical Sleigh stamp set!


So super fun and easy to create!  Something a little different then the traditional card!

Have a lovely day!
