The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Mother’s Day.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

As soon as I saw the delightful Butterfly Friends by Crafty Sentiments Designs I knew I wanted to make something special with her (or at least I hope that’s what I’ve managed to do?!).I found this fantastic tutorial on how to make a Cupcake Gift Purse/Box on From My Craft Room and another to make a Faux Cupcake as a little gift to go inside :

csdt12thmay 002

The instructions called for a styrofoam ball or some florists foam but as I didn’t have either to hand I trimmed down a segment from a Cadbury’s Egg ‘n’ Spoon  carton.This also kind of cut the middle man out as in the directions it showed to adhere the flowers in place,holding them with a pin until the glue dried.I just took the pins and after colouring the pearl tops with a Copic Marker stuck the flowers where I wanted them,filling any gaps with leaves.As this is glued into the case and it won’t be handled by small children I’m sure nobody will get hurt 😉 I have a big pot of these pins so it’s not like I’m going to miss any 😛 I also took one and added a metal butterfly spacer bead.

I coloured up Butterfly Friends with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers,trying to capture a furry feel,before fussy cutting and positioning her on the front.This was a lot of fun to make and altho’ it looked a little daunting it really wasn’t that difficult 😀
