That's amazing and brilliant.  How did you hinge the lids in the end?  Because by the looks of it they can still move?  (open and close I mean)  They are gorgeous and I'm always a sucker for butterflies. Smiley and amazed at your mad skillz to make it all fit and flow prettily. 

Thank you for the kind words! The lids do move easily....I threaded ribbon through the slots that were already there, threaded a bead through the ribbon and used a wet glue (in this case Diamond Glaze) that would soak into the ribbon and stick both sides together. I just made sure that I didn't get the glue too close to the slots.  Smiley
