After a ton of searching for something to use as a Grapefruit Grove themed pillow gift at my Getaway Retreat Weekend I finally found Pink Grapefruit Lip Balm.  And they were even on sale when I bought them – I think the lady at the store thought I was nuts when I bought all that they had.  But they were perfect for this little gift.

I used the Springtime Impressions Thinlits butterfly die to create the butterfly.  For the front layer die cut the butterfly out of the Grapefruit Grove card stock.  Then use the die for the back layer but instead of cutting it with the Big Shot; trace around the die on the back of the Designer Series Paper and then hand cut it out with the paper snips.  That gives you the solid butterfly for the back.  Add ribbon and a tag and you have a sweet little gift.
