3. Paint small dowels green and let dry. Begin coloring chipboard flowers, I used fluid chalk inks in blues and pinks. You could use paint, stamp, cover with pattern paper. Machine stitch around center (optional) and layer different shape and size flowers for dimension. Add rhinestones to flower centers.
4. Adhere flowers to painted dowel rods, put lid back onto tin and run into holes in top of tin. Ink three petals green and adhere to "stems". Cut two butterflies from pattern paper and adhere one to a stem and one to the highest flower.
