The My Time Made Easy © All A Flutter template produces a beautiful bag that can be used for any occasion gift giving! REMEMBER: ALL MTME © Pretty Packaging may be cut using various personal electric cutting machines & are CUSTOMIZABLE to fit your gift giving needs! Using my Cricut Expressions, I first cut out the "base" of the MTME © All A Flutter template from a few pieces of SU Chocolate Chip cs & for the "wing prints", I used MTME © Pretty Printables Pink Dots digi paper that I had printed with my own printer! I love the size of these dots on this paper & can only hope that Lauren will make these available in ALL of my favorite colors! REMEMBER: ALL MTME © Pretty Printables is digital paper & is available IMMEDIATELY! To make the handle, I cut a piece of SU Chocolate Chip cs 1.25" W x 11" H & layered it with a strip of the MTME © Pink Dots measuring 1" W x 10.75" L, then attached the strips with a couple of brads to the Butterfly "body".As you all probably know by now, I can't keep my hands off of distressing ink! So I don't sound like a broken record, it is safe to assume or when in doubt, that I have sponged the edges of anything & everything for a soft/vintagey look :) All edges of the "wing prints" are distressed as well as the tag, butterfly & flower embellies.
To make this tag, I first stamped the curvy verse image from the MTME © All A Flutter Sentiments set using SU Chocolate Chip ink then placed the Spellbinders Labels 4 die over & ran it through my Sizzix BigShot Express. I made the cute butterfly embellie by first stamping a Butterfly image from the MTME © All A Flutter set on a piece of the printed MTME © Pretty Printables Butterfly Definitions Pink paper, cut it out & set it aside. Using the Cricut Expressions, I cut a Butterfly from the MTME © Butterfly Accents & embossed it with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF. I layered the two together, then attached a button with a piece of twine.
The MTME © All A Flutter template is so gorgeous as is however, I wanted to adorn it with a few pretty flowers. All of the flowers are multi-layered, crinkled, distressed, some even embossed for added texture. The centers of each & every flower has a layer cut from the MTME © Pretty Printables Butterfly Definition: Red Clay, Pink or Brown papers. What a super fun & easy way to add character to ANY embellishment!

Here is my Shutt-erfly © Box & Tag Gift set:

(Note: you can rotate this image 360 degrees by doing the following... Within the photo, click and drag your mouse pointer to the left or right to spin the box! You can also use the left and right arrows on your keyboard or use the left and right arrows icons. You can also zoom in or out to get a better view of the box by using the (+) and (-) icons. Lastly, you can simply press the Play icon (circular arrow) to rotate the box automatically. Give it a try!)







The MTME © Shutt-erfly template makes a versatile & fun gift giving box. I cut my MTME © Shutt-erfly template from PTI Melon Berry cs, adhered it together then stitched on the gorgeous MTME © Pretty Printables Butterfly Stripes paper. I love this rich color combination!!!

I cut a BIG Butterfly using the MTME © Butterfly Accents from both Chocolate Chip paper & MTME © Pretty Printables Butterfly Definitions Pink paper. I added a flower embellie that includes a handmade crocheted flower courtesy of my dear sister Tina. From the flower embellie, I attached a tag with a sweet sentiment from the MTME © Pretty Impressions All A Flutter set.
From this side view, you can even get a better close up view of this sweet sentiment & beautiful paper!!!

On front panel, I adhered a flower embellie that is entirely made from the MTME © Pretty Printables Butterfly Definitions Pink paper!!! I love this paper collection - can you tell? I stamped a Butterfly image outline from the MTME © All A Flutter set on a piece of the MTME © Pretty Printables Pink Dot paper x 2, cut it out, layered it. I stitched a button in the center & gave it some antennae & adhered it to the multi - layered Spellbinders Scalloped Oval set.

Mona these projects are SPECTACULAR. I love the pink dots paper on the all a flutter box (giggle - I used brown dots on mine) and your tags always make me gasp - they are SO beautiful. I somehow KNEW you would sew your panels on the Shutterfly box and you do it SO nicely - can I come take sewing lessons? Again - I love the papers you chose for Shutt-erfly box - so beautiful and "vintagey" - you truly are a master! I always love visiting your blog - it just makes me SMILE! HUGE hugs and even bigger KUDOS for helping make all of this happen for Lauren. ROck on girlfriend!

You do great work, was watching your video on making the gift boxes using tags, bags, boxes and more, was wondering how do you do the paper if you are using the 12x24 mat? Is it a special paper that you buy?
