Citrus Flutter Butterfly Box

Citrus Flutter

This is “Citrus Flutter”, another wee keepsake box that is ready for the Keystone Summit I will be attending in December. This 1 1/2″ box has an orange and lemon shuttle-tatted butterfly adorning its lid. The butterfly is embellished with silver-lined yellow glass seed beads for the body and yellow beads with AB coating in the wings. AB is Aurora Borealis coating. It is a permanent clear coat that gives a rainbow effect to the glass bead and one of my favorite types of beads to use. A wee dark gold bead is used for the head. The butterfly has been mounted on white damask fabric that has swirls on the surface. The lid is trimmed in white handmade cable and lined with gold colored felt.
I made the little butterfly a long time ago. I frequently sit and tat little flowers or butterflies with no immediate idea of how I am going to use them. I keep them in a small box and pull them out from time to time until it strikes me what I would like to do with them. I am happy that this wee citrus butterfly has found a home.
