A Stuffed Folio Box

 Happy Friday to everyone!  It is an almost fall morning here, we are staying in the 80s this week and oh it has been glorious.  My project today is a Folio Box this one was done for me by DoodlingDebbie at the Silhouette Plus Forum, she is amazing, I love this one for organizing smaller cuts.  Yesterday, my Cameo cut over a 100 items, WOW, it was sooooo tired last night that I had to reboot my computer twice, my bad.  I have not had a moment when I have regretted my decision to add this to my studio, it is a power horse.  I am leaving in a bit to have coffee with a dear friend and this is for her, the folio box is filled with cuts that are specific to her loves.  There is another packet of just doilies and shape cards.  The butterfly was previously created and was done from a "Memory Box" die, then distressed and painted with Tim Holtz Products, it was then sealed with a sealer and added metal antennae with beads.  The box is trimmed with handmade Irish lace (I have only cut one other piece off this, I protect it lovingly, lol.  The side metal guards are hand hammered florist wire.  The box is covered with Bazzill texturered on top and the bottom is by Petals & Possibilities by Pressed Petals "White Swirl on Orange"
Here is a semi side view to show the depth, the box was cut from chipboard with the Cameo from #110lb settings.  Hope your day is a creative one, hugs
