Challenge #48 Butterflies

Hey Hey everyone, 
Well I hope you are all enjoying the summer holidays and having plenty of fun, I also hope the kiddies are behaving themselves and staying safe.

Soooo it's that time of week over at Delicious Doodles yes you guessed it - it's challenge time

This weeks challenge is 

We would love to see Delicious Doodles images on your creations, but it is not a requirement.

If you do use a Delicious Doodles image you can enter TWICE, and you get to be spotlighted next week!

Sorry folks, in the interest of fairness to all we only allow ONE ENTRY per person, unless using a DD image. You can combine entries with as many other challenges as you like. 

So here is my piece for this week's challenge 
I have used the image "Fairy Fae"

And here it is all boxed up

The way I did my bookatrix keepsake calendar card: I first started off by choosing my image and printing it off, once it was printed I then coloured it in using my Promarker pens the colours I have used are:
Hot Pink, Tulip Yellow, Cool Aqua, Orchid, Baby Pink, Oatmeal, Cocoa

Once my image was coloured in I then cut it all out, now to make the bookatrix, I used my Glitter Girls embossing board to do each layer on the bookatrix, once these were all done on the board I then cut each layer out and then decorated the edges with peel off border stickers.

Now all the layers were cut out and decorated around the edges I then stuck them into position using double sided tape, and foam pads to give the pages a little more shape, I then added my image to the left-hand side and my Calendar to the right-hand side,Then I added some satin ribbon down the centre and a small bow with a bell to the top.

That is the bookatrix all finished, now for the gift box, I used a eazi-score board to make my base and lid, the lid took a little longer as I then added a window into it in the same shape as the bookatrix. I did this by using a template to draw around and then used my craft knife and carefully cut out the window, once it was all cut out I then cut my Acetate to the correct size and added this on the inside of the lid, Before building the lid up I then, decorated the edge with peel off border stickers. 

Now the lid and base could be made up which is pretty simple its a matter of folding all sides up and sticking the tabs to the sides.

And there we have my Bookatrix Calendar Keepsake
