Today’s project and video is a little different. I have a cute Mini Treat Bag for you. It’s using the gorgeous Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper. I also have a couple of other versions in this design.
You can check the video below and I have the measurements further down so you can refer back to it.
Here is the Mini Treat Bag.
Notice the bottom edge? I diecut the “hatch” type die on it. Whether you stamp or diecut on this you will need to do this before you assemble the bag.
I added a detailed Diecut butterfly from the Brilliant Wings Dies set cut in Mint Macaron. I diecut a stitched circle with the Stitched Shapes Die between the butterfly and bag to help separate the 2 so the butterfly doesn’t get lost on the bag.
Here is the video. If you receive this post by email the video may not show so be sure to head to my blog to catch the video or heat to Youtube.
I made 2 other versions too. A sweet one with the Dandy Garden Suite. It’s a great way to use the dandelion paper. Also one with the Whale of A Time Designer Series Paper.

Last week on my Private Facebook group I shared a sketch and encouraged others to use the sketch to create a card. Of course, I had to create a card also. I love using sketches. They are a great spring-board to your creating.
This is the sketch. This is from the Freshly Made Sketches.
This is the card I created. I have used the gorgeous Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper. Of course you have seen it by now right. 🙂 So lovely.
For the shape on the sketch you can use any shape but I chose the butterfly as I have been creating with the Butterfly Brilliance products this past 2 weeks.
The sentiment is from the Many Messages set. Inside you can add another sentiment whether it is a Birthday or Thinking of You or whatever occasion. I punched the ends with the Banners Pick A Punch.
Maybe you can use this sketch in your next project. If you like, share it with me on my email at firstname.lastname@example.org I would love to see. It’s always fun to see other people’s interpretation.
It’s Wednesday’s WOW! #119. Today let’s have a close look at this newButterfly Brilliance release. You might have seen these products around but I thought we would check out some of the particular unique features of it.
The new Butterfly Brilliance is a new collection of products released early. You might say you have enough butterflies …but really do you have such butterflies as pretty as these? And that paper! That on it’s own is just so gorgeous.
While the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle (stamps and dies) you will see in the new catalogue the gorgeous papers won’t be available. They are limited release. 😦 That’s sad as they are so pretty and the dies cut out some of the butterflies on this paper.
What do you do if you want all the butterflies? The solution is the Butterfly Brilliance Collection.$125 AUD Only available while supplies last.
The Butterfly Brilliance Collection includes: – * Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set – * Brilliant Wings Dies – Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2) Designer Series Paper – Natural Touch Specialty Paper
*The stamp set and Dies are available as a Bundle.
The Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper is available in 6″x6″ papers and there are 8 sheets of 6 different designs. Oh so beautiful! One side has the butterfly prints and the other has a more plain pattern OR … a beautiful watercolour wash.
And the colours! They are Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Mango Melody, Mint Macaron, Misty Moonlight, Poppy Parade, So Saffron. So pretty together.
But check this out! The Brilliant Wings Die cuts the butterflies on some of the Butterfly Bijou DSP. No fussy cutting these beauties.
The other paper in this collection is the Natural Touch Specialty Paper. The pale woodgrain is versatile enough for any project and any time of year and will give a “textured” effect. Emboss it, use it with dies and you can even colour it with inks. There are only available while supplies last too.
You receive 2 sheets at 12″x12″ size. (30.5cm x 30.5cm). They both have a different pattern.
Now let’s talk a bit more about the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle.
BUTTERFLY BRILLIANCE CLING STAMP SET The images are so detailed.
Did you know that these butterflies are modelled after butterfly species from around the world?? Including the Clouded Yellow (Europe), Black Veined White (Europe & Asia), Coppers (New Zealand), Swallowtail (North America), Blue Copper (North America), and Painted Lady (Australia). How cool!
The butterflies are a single stamp so you can create a background or diecut them individually. You will need a Block F to use them. I would suggest using the Stamparatus to stamp them as it is so big but also if it doesn’t stamp as well as you would like it is very easy to restamp.
BRILLIANT WINGS DIES I mentioned above how you can diecut the paper. These dies cut the stamped butterflies also so you have individual butterflies. Why not layer them for a fun effect!
You might wonder what those funny little pieces in the dies do. Check them out.
They emboss the card or diecut a “brick” effect or a “splatter”.
