For my Honey! (Pentru draga mea)

I'm not going to say for whose honey, but this was a gift I made for somebody's girlfriend for Valentine's Day.
The box:
One of the wooden boxes I have around the house was decorated using a damask design napkin and an embossed butterfly from Inkadinkado. After decorating the lid I decided to leave the rest just plain white in order not to overwhelm the design. As an additional touch I used the same napkin to decorate the inside.
The card:
I really like this card. And the reason I like it most is that it is almost entirely made out of scraps. I have many leftover pieces of cardstock from the invitations I made last year, so one day I pulled them out and said to myself: "I have to do something with these". The flowers are hand cut from red tissue (wrapping paper) and some paper ribbon (the only non scrap material I used). The butterflies are stamped on magazine paper and embossed. Watch this video for a tutorial on the magazine paper butterflies.

Cutia de bijuterii si felicitarea au fost cadoul de ziua Sf. Valentin pentru iubita unui prieten. Totul, inclusiv florile au fost realizate manual si la comanda pentru a se potrivi perfect persoanei careia i-au fost desinate si ocaziei cu care acest dar a fost prezentat.
