The butterflies suspended on the acetate strips are 3D stickers available on sheets. As they have acetate wings they dance beautifully in the slightest breeze. The butterfly on the lid I cut from a piece of patterned paper and enhanced the colour with some iridescent paint and clear sealer (this gave the butterfly some strength as the paper was el cheapo and a bit thin!!)

An exploding card??!!
My sister loves all things fantasy, you will see on these pages many things that I have created that have "for my sister" in them; she is such good value - if it's a fairy or wizard, pixie or butterfly she loves it. She also loves purple, oh and cats! For her birthday last year I decided to go the purple-and-butterflies route and made her the exploding box and card set below
I used a template from "the net" for this box, and adapted it to suit my theme. I have created a PDF with the instructions (and a few drawings) if you would like a copy I will email one to you; just email me at "firstname.lastname@example.org" refer to the PDF or Exploding Box in the subject line so I don't ditch your email!
