Outside The Box Challenge

My "Soap Box Challenge" entry.

I've decide to call mine "A Soap Box Journal."
This one is all about butterflies. 

I made the 3 x 3 inch accordian folded book sometime ago leaving the pages blank inside. While working on the box I came across the book. I realized the book would fit perfectly inside the box.  I stained the paper pages with coffee and ink, and calligraphed the Native American Butterfly Legend inside. I stamped a butterfly image on the first and last pages of the book. I printed out a few butterfly images, stained the edges of the paper and tucked them inside the page pockets that are formed by folding a sheet of paper into 3 inch squares.   

This challenge was so enjoyable and rewarding. I love the soap and the skin conditioner. There will be more spa time as well as soap box creations...
