Dreaming Tree German Bus Box for Bitten by the Bug 2 and Double Trouble Colab

Welcome to my inspiration for the last Bitten by the Bug 2's Layer up!  While Double Trouble Challenge has some twist you can find the details from the above link. I went with lots of layers but left out the cozy and cuddly.  I used a variety of materials to create another Dreaming Tree German Bus.  

This one was a commission piece for a coworkers daughter.  Her daughter's room is butterflies. 

Each part of the box begins with twelve pieces.  I used glue, time and patience to adhere each layer to create the box.

Then, I layered this box up with a sturdy card stock first.  Second a beautiful glossy embossed butterfly paper.  Third some metallic silver details and acetate windows.  Finally, gems to accent.

The back side.

As I said this box is sturdy and has a few layers in the bottom including decorative butterfly paper.
