Butterfly Trinket Box...

I absolutely love making these little trinket boxes - I learnt the technique at a class that was held at  work.  The inner box is made using one piece of 12x12 paper and an origami folding technique.  For the outer box, I smiled sweetly at a member of our framing department, and got them to cut down some of their scrap hardboard to the right size.  I joined them all together with framing tape, which gives the lid it's flexibility, but is strong at the same time.
I finally cut into my DCWV Marisposa stack - it's hard to take the scissors to it, but what's the point in owning all this stuff if it's too 'nice' to use?  I finished it off with some WOC flowers.

I'm also entering this one into the Wild Orchid Crafts challenge - Anything goes.
