Butterfly kisses all in one book box with BoBunny

Hello my dear crafty BoBunny fans! Irit is here and this is my blog post made with the most adorable  Butterfly Kisses BoBunny collection as the Round 2 BoBunny DT  call finalist. I know this is an old news and I made the team in July, but I just forgot to post this project that most probably entered me to the team.
So the post was made then, but the project was never seen. Maybe now it's a time as it's full of Spring colors?

First I need to say that I was totally on cloud 9 just to be BoBunny finalist. But then I am on cloud 9 again as this is my very first time to own the entire paper and embellishments collection from any company.
 Living in Israel is not so easy for an addicted crafter: you can buy some products here, but not everything and you can order some , but still not everything. So to get the full collection makes my crafting possibilities just endless. 
And this is a reason for this very long post. At the beginning there was one project done. Then I decided to add more small crafts and more and more... Finally I just dropped when most of my bright colored products from this collection were used.
So bare with me if this post is too long, please!

I promise  to showcase you some lovely , easy to make, sometimes just in 10 minutes, projects ans I am pretty sure that you will rush to the nearest shop to get yourself this Butterfly Kisses collection.
And now  those are my projects all together is their shining glory:

 The main piece of my craft collection is a book shaped self made shadow box.
Long time ago I made a tutorial in my blog with step by step instructions for this project and as this blog post is not a tutorial, I am just going to show it and to explain a bit about it. 
All you need are three recycled chipboards that I covered with BoBunny patterned papers to make a kind of a book cover.

To make it look more similar to a real book I added a spine and even a  chipboard  piece as a title.
So my book is called " Butterfly Kisses". How about that"? Pretty much obvious.
This is how this beauty looks from the side:

And this is the front  over embellished cover. Yes, the front can be bulky and shiny and you sure can add even more layers to it. I made a hand made frame with patterned paper over a chipboard (sorry, dear  BOBUNNY, this is the only products that I used that is not yours. I just had to use a rectangle die to make it pretty and professional).

Inside this pink frame I added the piece of  Butterfly Kisses Foil Vellum paper and it was just in a perfect size to fit this frame inside.
A few pieces from Butterfly Kisses chipboard was added over the frame to make the title ans then I even embellished the jar over the chipboard with the same collection buttons and a few pink rhinestones.
For the next step I die cut three most adorable paper butterflies using BoBunny Flutters dies and made around the dies hand cuts as the second lower layer.

The inside of the cover has two parts. The left one is just a cover and it should stay flat. So I just embellished it with Butterfly Kisses Noteworthy pieces and some Combo Stickers and added a few rhinestones.

And now  the shadow book shaped part of this project:

All you need are a few piece of solid cardstock and a good scoring board. Score the cardstock 16 times on 1/2'' scale and make 4 pieces of it. Fold them into accordion  kind of folding and make a frame of four  folded pieces. Cover with patterned paper and if you wish you can add some hand cut corners too. Add a nice piece of another patterned paper inside and your shadow book shaped box is done.
But my entire project has much more pieces made in the same style with the same bright part of this collection, but they are totally different.
When you have a shadow box you can  put things inside! So I made a few to put inside this  box.
The first one are a bunch of mini greeting cards made in this " Take 10" style (you can make each one for not more than 10 minutes and maybe even less).   Make the basic cardstock cards, add the front paper panel, adhere a sticker, add the sentiment and embellish with a single button. 
Here are all four together:

 And now a look at them separately:

But wait! Didn't I made them to put into the box? So here they are inside the box:

The second  project that I made to add into the box was a Gift card holder.

Remember the cover die cut pink paper frame from the cover? I used the inner  part as my card holder with a little add- ons of papers and chipboards.
And look how fancy it looks inside the box!

The third project that I decided to  put  inside the box (actually over the cards etc) is this one single paper sheet folded mini album.
This is my " master piece tutorial " project: I made a tutorial a few years ago in my blog and this mini album post still is a top star of my blog. Then I was asked to teach Make N' Take with some paper company on last Winter CHA and ... Yes, it was this  kind of a mini album and it was a hit too.
So without a tutorial: one 12*12'' sheet of double sided paper; three folds; 4 scissors cuts and whatever you decide to add inside and outside as long as it is FLAT!
This is how it looks when totally closed:

Unfold the flip:

Unfold the top fold down:

Unfold the top fold up:

Unfold the top and bottom flaps to left to see it totally open. By the way, the lovely kids are my own grand kids about a year ago.

And now  let me show how it fits the shadow box- on the top, not inside, but you still can close the whole structure.

After making three " old fashioned" projects I decided to add a trendy one. How about this Pocket letter? If you are not familiar with this swap item, it's just a Baseball/Football cards refill filled with 9 hand made cards and it's very similar to Misc Me  project.
So with four vellum and four paper card that I found in this collection I just added one more vellum piece as the main  theme card.  And the reason  this pocket letter is a great box filler is that you can and need to fold it as the main reason  you make then are swaps.

So here it is inside the box:

And this is my Pocket letter in a full  opened:

And just a couple of close- ups to show you how gorgeous this piece is with only papers, vellum, chipboards and stickers. Flat as it should be!But wait! Gold is over it and I love it , using Foil transfers was a blast!

So how about one more add- on to this project? Just one more.
I made a fancy gift tag to add to the shadow box with all crafts inside. And I am totally in love with this 
BoBunny collection as you can see from the sentiment over my tag.

 So just one final look at this lovely shadow box and thanks for being here and reading this long- long post!
Now I cross my fingers for like two weeks to see if I made the team . Please , cross your fingers for me too!
