Folio Box with note cards

It is hump day, hope it slides by smoothly for everyone.  I did this box last week for a friend but did not want to post it until she had received it.  I saw this folio box on an ad and just fell in love with it.  My abilities are not honed well enough to create this yet in Silhouette DE so I put a plea out to the Shilouette Plus forum, asking if anyone had a file or knew where I could get one.  That day 3 wonderfully creative women popped up with a cut file, wow what a great forum.  The box was cut from chipboard and then I applied some trim and ribbon and embellished with some of my faux gems.  The faux stitching around the box was done with the Silhouette.  The circle butterflies are from a collage sheet from "Call Me Victorian".  The butterfly on the box has the recipients initial but I left the note cards plain.  This projects takes a short time to do and yields such a great result.  Have a good one, hugs

I think the weight on the chipboard is .22mm, but not positive it is the stock chipboard my paper distributor sells,settings I used were, blade 7, speed 1, thickness 33 and I did have it set for double cut, thanks for the comments, hugs
