Butterflies and Rosettes and gift boxes

During 2013,  these butterflies and rosettes have almost become my trademarks.
The rosettes are from a Tim Holtz die, the butterflies from Stampin Up's 'Beautiful Wings' tied together in a group of three. I tend to glue on just one wing of the butterfly to add some dimension.

I have used some of the butterflies on this butterfly shaped card, having first used papers from my scraps to cover it.
The paperclip bow I made with help from a My Chicnscratch tutorial.
The Happy Birthday I stamped into a little tablet some time ago - I found it in my 'bit box'!

At this time of year though I find myself making little gift boxes...

This was not a Christmassy one - basically the Long Triangle box from Sissix decorated with various embellishments.

But then I wanted a more festive idea - I saw an idea on Created by Bianca -
 and this is my version.
I wanted a box shaped base to put a small present in,
 but then the tree shapes tie together to close it.
On the front I added a LEJ Designs freebie - 'Surprise'!
