I am here with an upcycled gift box that I made for Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge. I used only the butterfly + W is for Wheat (color) in this project.
My project started out as an interesting hexagon-shaped Turkish Delight box.......
....and ended up as a pretty gift box:
Someone needs to make a crafting cartoon similar to the X-Box one above that says.......Son: Oh, yay!!....Turkish Delight!!
Janis: Oh, yay!!!....Turkish Delight BOX!!Now do you see why I chose that cartoon for this post?!! :D
This box was easy to cover because it has a separate top and bottom...and also because the "flaps" unfold easily from the interior. Here's the lid all unfolded:
I chose some coordinating K&Co. butterfly prints and glued them onto the unfolded top and base. I trimmed with a craft knife, scored the folds for a crisp look, and then reconstructed the box. It was quite easy!

Here's a zoomed in shot of the tag I made for the box. The tag base is made of cork and the bow is twine. I like the organic texture of this combination with the nature motifs I used. The Versafine ink stamped on the cork perfectly.
Products used include:
Empty candy box
K&Co. patterned paper
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Sentimental: Gift stamp set
Versafine ink in Onyx Black
Verve - Sprightly Sprigs die set (discontinued)

Twine from my stash
