Box frames...

I love working with box frames!
With this one i simply painted the outer and inner with cream emulsion to give it a matt base.The little butterflies are from a Stampin Up punch. I punched 4 for each butterfly, (9 whole butterflies in total = 36 punched butterflies) then I folded the butterflies in half and backed one set of wings onto another with glossy accents so that when all 4 are joined it stands up by itself...does that make sense?
These were then backed onto thick cream card in rows of 3.
The rub ons were then placed on the frame once dry and all put back together.
A simple little project to brighten up a dull corner :)
