for my project today i made a mini card and altered a half toilet paper roll.. dontcha just love how you can take a piece of something youd normally just trash and make it into something pretty :) 
for the card i used my cricut and accent essentials (accents 33 and 33s) cartridge for the flowers.to the centers i used liquid pearls. behind the flowers i used some paper wraffia that i colored with distress stain. the butterflies are martha stewart punch.

                                          i used a stamp from the everyday sentiments set isnt it sweet and comforting.
for the t/paper roll gift box i just cut the roll in half adhered my paper and lace then added the same elements that are on the card. i also cut a piece of paper to make a handle.i cut a circle slightly larger than the bottom and glued that to the inside so the gift wouldnt fall out :)  the tag i just used my own chicken scratch
thanks so much for stopping by this morning again, dont forget to see what the rest of the DT have created AND dont forget to come on back tomorrow for our grand reveal and blog hop! and more awesome projects to feast your eyes upon. xxxshelly

Really? You made that will TP roll..I am in awe. It is beautiful as is your card. The butterflies and the flowers are perfect! This is such a great little gift set and anyone would love to get it. The sentiment goes perfectly with the peaceful feel of your project. BTW I don't think your writing is awesome because it has a vintage look to it:)

HOLY CRAP, Shelly! How gorgeous! OMG, love the colors and just love how the flowers and b'flies are so daintily perched. Pretty ribbon trim and the beautiful truly does make me feel like every little thing is gonna be alright. :)

WOW! What STUNNING projects! I can't believe you made that from a TP roll! The way the butterflies and flowers pop off is awesome. The colors are so calming and reminds me of going to the beach...just like the sentiment does too! Fabulous job!
