Butterfly Candy Holder

Good morning! Now i have the 3D project from the May Make and Take to share with you! I wanted to do a cute little candy holder so here it is. On this project we are also saying goodbye to the Round Tab Punch, Butterfly Prints, Peach Parfait, and Flight of the Butterfly.

  • Stamps: Butterfly Prints, Flight of the Butterfly
  • Card Stock: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Cajun Craze
  • Ink: Peach Parfait, Cajun Craze, Not Quite Navy
  • Accessories: XL Oval Punch, Round Tab Punch, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Gold Brads, Mini Glue Dots, Sticky Strip

I used the tutorial from Stamping 411 that you can find HERE to cut and score the card stock. I cut two pieces of Whisper White card stock 2-1/2" x 2-3/4" to use instead of the DSP used in the tutorial. I stamped the butterflies from Flight of the Butterfly all over both pieces of card stock in Peach Parfait and Cajun Craze ink. Then these panels were adhered onto the outside flaps of the candy holder.

For the middle butterfly I stamped the image from Butterfly Prints onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock in Not Quite Navy ink. I punched out the butterfly with the Butterfly Punch (retired last year) and adhered the butterfly onto the candy holder front with a Mini Glue Dot.

I used Cajun Craze for the Round Tab Punch with Gold Brads for the top. Also, instead of using a dove candy I had Peppermint Patties. Other than that I followed Connie's tutorial. What do you think of this little cutie?

These are all the wonderful things used on this project that will no longer be available after May 31st. If you see one of these that you love make sure you click HERE and order it now before it's gone forever!
