Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for March 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring Spring or Spring related projects. We hope you enjoy our creations.
You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

To me, nothing says spring better than flowers and butterflies! Thanks to a Sam Hammond tutorial, I have the perfect spring project for you, a beautiful and charming gift box that you can make now, store flat and pull it out when you need it! I like to have packaging on hand 'just in case'!

I started with a base of Daffodil Delight and wrapped it in Affectionately Yours DSP. This DSP is beautiful! Two of the pieces feature copper foil. With paper like this, you can keep your embellishments to a minimum and let the DSP steal the show!

For the top of the box, I used the Elegant Butterfly punch on a small square of Daffodil Delight and layered it onto a piece of Copper Foil prepared with dimensionals. The Bitty Butterfly punch was used for the smaller butterflies and a Night of Navy Candy Dot finished off the top of my box.

The best part of this box is that it folds flat. You can create for all kinds of occasions and store them for future use. This would be especially handy for birthday, shower or wedding favors. You can make them at your leisure and not have to worry about storage space.

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!
