A wonderful quote from R.H. Heinlein. This collection is like having wonderful butterflies under glass, shabby chic style! These three specimen boxes are all made of vintage finds of; lace, ribbon, netting, cheesecloth, crepe paper, lots of mother of pearl buttons, crochet pieces, book covers, book pages, rusty wires, cream string, glass vials, silk flowers, a wooden button, and even the boxes are vintage. Each box has been hand stitched and glued inside and out with these vintage finds and have a little crochet loop for hanging or are perfectly content to sit on a table to be admired.

The largest box is approx. 4½” x 6” x 2”. All the butterflies are designed by me, they are from my paper cut banners in my shop. The gorgeous large one is hand cut from an abandoned rust colored book cover with the cut outs from a butterfly made of a book page to make the design on his wings. His body is a little glass vial filled with pieces from a silk flower and a tiny mother of pearl button, with another mother of button pearl button on top holding his antennas. The sweet smaller butterfly is made from cardboard scavenged from sewing tape with his wing pattern made from the abandoned rusty book cover and a little mother of pearl bead as his body.

The medium box is approx. 3½” x 5” x 1½”. This beautiful butterfly is made from cardboard scavenged from sewing tape with his wing pattern made from a book page with his body made from a little glass vial filled with tiny little feather and a cork on top holding his antennas. The butterfly cut from the book page is used on the back of this box.

The smallest box is approx. 3” x 4” x 1½“. This cute little butterfly is again made from cardboard scavenged from sewing tape with his wing pattern made from pretty lace circles with his body made from a cute little wooden button that holds his antennas.
