Celebrating Creativity - Day 16

My final butterfly swap is for a Treat Swap I'm in at Convention.  I wanted to leverage the Tag a Bag boxes because I think they are an excellent size for gift giving.

I used white Stazon to stamp on the window sheet included with the boxes.  I layered a butterfly stamped in Blushing Bride with a butterfly cut out from the Gold Vellum.  Then I did a Blushing Butterfly thinlit on the top.  But it was missing two things - a body and antennae.

The body of the butterfly is half of a clothespin.  I took off the metal fixture and then inked with White Stazon.  Once added to the body using glue dots, I added a piece of Gold Metallic Thread to the back and it gave it the perfect amount of whimsy.
