Harston club day swaps - March

When we met up in February for our first craft day, we had not decided on what our swap would be during the coming year. 
So I provided random items from my hoard of goodies that I at one time fully intended to alter but never actually got round to it.
Each member chose either a paper mache covered accordion booklet, a small frame or a box,
I should of course have taken a photo of the items but forgot.
This month we swapped with each other and it was fabulous to see how each member had risen to the challenge producing wonderful altered creations.
I altered my accordion booklet which had 6 folding pages which provided 12 sides to
create a Birthday book.  I decorated the pages, then used ATC sleeves
to hold a Tag, dates can be recorded on the reverse. Then made a stand
up sleeve to store the booklet in.

Pamela has decorated this frame with embossing paste and lovely flowers,
such a gorgeous colour, with lots of attention to detail.

Annie used her JOFY stamps for her booklet, such vivid
colours and bright.

Tanya covered her box sides with blue lace and used one of Liz's
new stamp images on the lid.

Liz has used papers to decorate her smashing booklet,
so much to see.

Last but not least, Jane's frame has so much detail,
(I was the lucky recipient, I love it).

Liz kindly provided items for us to take away and decorate for the swap next month. 
Now what can I do to a rather large mdf butterfly?
