Tim Holtz Butterfly Accordion Vignette for Creativation 2017


Today I'm sharing this little accordion album I made for the Tim Holtz Sizzix booth at Creativation 2017.  This is a TINY project, made with the smallest vignette box, about the size of a matchbox.


The Small Tattered Florals dies work beautifully with the Mini Detailed Butterfly.


I created a "bumper" from chipboard, which I adhered to the inside of the box lid to keep it from moving around when the book was closed.


I layered the accordion fold to this bumper, with the ribbon closure sandwiched beneath the bumper.  I made a second panel and mounted to the top for added dimension.


The flowers were made with inked patterned paper, bundled over a bit of string.  I embossed the edges of the vignette with gold for contrast.  The butterfly was colored with various Distress embossing powders.  I found it quite easy to add the powder strategically and loved the result.


Simple stamping and tissue tape adorn the inside of the accordion book.  I hope you are inspired to use your vignette panels in new ways today.  Thank you so much for your visit.

This is such a gorgeous tiny box. What a treasure! I like how you embossed the top layer of the butterfly it is so beautiful-I hope to get this mini die but I always struggle with how to treat the upper layer of the larger set I currently own-definitely plan to try your idea. Another amazing project. Thank you for sharing your talent!
