pop up butterfly box



 Hi all
I was watching create and craft the other day and Craftwork cards were on selling their fab kits..well they showcased a pop up card with a difference so I had a go at recreating it for myself ..I have made a tutorial and put it under my header as the Pop up butterfly box if you would like to make one for yourselves.The idea is when you open the box the butterflies pop up ...
I used Craftwork card papers ,centura pearl card for the actiual box  .The butterflies and sentiment on the box front were stamped using a fab stamp set from the crafty pad and I cut some using a woodware punch.I also used circle and scalloped circle dies
