Flight of the Butterfly card Tin

Well I'm over the worst of this nasty virus that's been going round and all that remains is a barking cough which is driving me potty, but in myself I feel tons better and thank you to everyone for your well wishes - they really are appreciated. So, this weekend I promised myself some 'me' crafting time and that's exactly what I achieved. Before Christmas I did a class using some A5 silver tins and it went down a treat as they make a beautiful gift - not that any of my customers want to give them away! I've been selling the tins and the class on my sidebar but now we're out of the Christmas time zone I wanted to update it to something that could be done any time of year. Inspired by the hundreds of butterflies that Jen did for the Extravaganza last week I decided to work with Flight of the Butterfly along with the Tea Party papers.

I've made 4 cards to go in the tin but it can easily hold at least 8 depending on the embellishments on each card. Here's the inside of the tin... And a closer look at the outside...I'll be doing this tin as a class for those that weren't able to come to the Christmas one so if you live local to Wimborne and would like to come along, drop me an email at jodumbleton@aol.co.uk for class dates and more info.

I haven't updated the class instructions as I literally only did this one last night but if you would be interested in purchasing them, again email me or leave a comment below and I'll get my finger out. The tins are still for sale and if you live local you're more than welcome to come and collect.

Tfl,

Jo :)

Jo, I haven't been doing too many classes, but I was wondering if I could possibly case you on this one? Love the colors/sketches for all of them!

I'm looking for a card idea this morning to make for my daughter. I Google searched by Flight of the Butterfly card ideas and your site came up. This project is stunning! I'm a SU demonstrator in the US.....Seattle area. Thank you for the inspiration.....even a year after your original post.
