Blueberry Crisp Butterfly

We had craft club at work on Friday and this was one of the projects I made. It's great to squeeze a bit of crafting fun into a working day. Plus you get to catch up with dear friends!

This box is the pillow box die cut on the Big Shot in Sahara Sand with a strip of Blueberry Crisp DSP around it. The stitching was drawn with a Soft Suede marker. As you probably recognise now, the butterfly is from Strength & Hope; this time I coloured it with a Crumb Cake marker all over and then dabbed Soft Suede in patches to give a mottled effect. Am still mad about those little self-adhesive pearls so a row of them was added to give the effect of the butterfly's body. Cute!!!

Here is Munchkin during a quiet moment at the weekend. Don't you just love the top that her Grandparents bought her?

This was just a bit of fun I had to try and cheer up the little one. Normally she eats like a horse, especially when it comes to fruit. Sadly, due to her under-the-weather state she's not been eating as well so I thought some fun needed to be injected. This is what I came up with! Suddenly fruit became very appealing!!


  1. Lovely box, and such cool fruit! I'd probably eat more if mine looked that friendly :)

  2. luv the pillow box, the colors are so gorgeous....cute little girl and fruit...great idea to get her to eat...hope your week is fantastic!

  5. You've decorated the pillow box beautifully and I love what you did to the fruit! Must show my son who will go bananas! (Did you see what I did there?!!) Vx

  6. Hi there! Thank you so much for the sweet comment about the beehive card you left on my blog. We have grandchildren coming here a week from now and I know they don't eat much fruit - am now going to search for the big goggly eyes tucked away in my stash - brilliant idea! Might not tell my OH and see if he notices :) Some fab creations on your now have a new follower! Di xx
