Is it a dodecahedron?!

I recently had something arrive in the most amazing packaging.  It was so amazing that I immediately took it out and cast it aside and studied the packaging!  I took it apart and made a template so I could make my own version out of pretty paper...

I used the navy and teal butterfly paper from Pink Paislee Moonstruck (in the like for ever November kit) and a piece of mint lace from Crafty Ribbons.  Handily my littlest cousin has a birthday this week and a couple of bits fit neatly inside - a truly uniquely wrapped birthday present!

I've fiddled around in Silhouette Studio and created a cut file to make more boxes... you can find it here if you are interested in making some.

I'm entering at the Butterfly Challenge whose theme is Navy and not square.  It's not square... I'm not sure what it is... possibly a rhombicuboctahedron?  One of the shape names I remember from school is the dodecahedron - I just love the word! - and it is much easier to say than the rhombiwhatsit, so I've named the cut file Is It A Dodecahedron?!

Thanks for stopping by!
