Altered Paint sticks

Here are my altered paint sticks for a swap on the Cricut Messageboard. I've never done these before!

First I painted my sticks. Then I made the flowers. I added homemade glimmer mist. Lots of inking. The butterflies are stamped, then I used embossing powder on them. They are glued on to give a 3d effect rather than flat. The front has a flip tag book that we can add small photos or journaling to. And pockets on the front and back with tags to do the same.

(I think the first picture looks a bit brighter than what they actually look in person. They're actually the same color as the bottom photo.)

It was a fun challenge to do!
