Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #3

As I was going onto Joan's blog to post my tag link (below this post), I saw that this week's Thursday Weekly challenge #3 is:

1.Make a box...any kind of box will work.....even an alter box (how about a box for your tags)
2. A flourish
3. A butterfly
4. Make a flower (alright...if you can't make one use one you have purchased).

I made this little trinket box.  It is 2 1/8" square.  I used cardboard backing from a paper pack to make box and covered it with paper from my stash, I have no idea what company.  The box closes with the ribbon...I put a tiny flat magnet under the brown paper and wrapped within the end of the ribbon.  The flower was made with several sizes of punches, misted with water, wadded and then the layers put together.  The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and the flourish is a Spellbinders die. Will also include in this week's Flutterby Wednesday Challenge - anything goes.

Gorgeous projects, I just went thru the page on your blog, you are one very talented lady. You have a wedding card I believe which is the frame with the two sides on it, can you tell me where to get some of those cut. No one around my area bought that die cut. my email is jkwallace@mchsi.com if you want to contact me off the list.
