Butterflies and Flowers Altered Ice Cream Container

Hi everyone! I am so excited to share that I am a Brand Ambassador for Momenta! I’ll be sharing twice a month projects that I have created using their wonderful assortment of products such as cardstock, diecuts, stamps, traveler’s notebooks, etc.! 

Well, lets get started with my first project of the month! 

I had decided I was going to alter an empty ice cream/gelato container. I liked the shape and size of the container and thought once altered I could either use it as storage or give it as a gift.

I measured and cut a piece of cardstock, from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad, and adhered to the container.

I picked out the pink and gold polka dot doily from the 4″ Doily Watercolor Pack and cut a small section of the doily off.

I pinched and folded both pieces of the doilies to create “fans” and I adhered the larger of the two to the container. 

Next I adhered trim around the top of the container.

From the Intricate Floral Cutting Plate I cut several paper diecuts out from the Peony Paper Pad and from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad.

I then started by cutting a section of butterfly and flowers off from the yellow/off white cardstock. I used this as the base to adhere all the layers to.

I cut flowers and the butterfly from the different diecuts and adhered…I used Adhesive Sheets for the t-tiny pieces and Beacon Adhesives…generally Zip Dry Adhesive but I was out and the Fabri-Fix works as good if not better.

I added sequins and gems to the center of the flowers.

I traced onto the same piece of cardstock I used to cover the container a circle using the lid as the template. Since my cutting wasn’t perfect I covered the edges with flatback pearls.

I adhered the flowers and butterfly diecut to the front of the container. I added bits of tulle behind the diecut.

I also adhered the smaller doily “fan” behind the diecut as a filler.
For the final touches I made several loops of thread and added those and pearl sprays to finish this container.

I hope you have enjoyed this project as much as I enjoyed creating it! As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know. Also be sure to check out Momenta website which can be found: HERE, Facebook HERE, Twitter HERE and Instagram HERE.
