Mother's Day

Hey Ya'll!
  It's that time again, the rush to get Mother's Day projects done before the actual day ! I've been busy making the cards, shopping for presents and even making a box for one of them to go in. I have been seeing these pop-up card boxes everywhere I look lately, even at Walmart of all places! When I saw how much they wanted for one, it sealed the deal, and I had to make one for myself.
  Oh course it ended up not being for me but for my Mother. I got the instructions and a tutorial at Split Coast Stampers, and it really was not as hard as it looks. The box itself took no time at all. It was deciding what to put in the box and where to put it that took so long, lol. I did some stamping and embossing on the flowers, and used a strip of acetate to place the butterflies on. I also made a belly band( not pictured ) to hold the card closed.

I had so much fun making this one, that I made another one for my Grandson to give to his Mother!
This one also has a belly band (not shown). I wish all of you a very Happy Mother's Day, and thanks for peeking!
