What you need:
- Scrap card stock in 3 coordinating colours/patterns
- Additional card stock and/or paper for the background
- A photo frame (I got two for $5 at Big W, whoot!)
- Foam photo mount square stickers (or whatever it is they're called!)
|You could also cut your butterflies/shapes with a punch|
What to do:
Cut out six butterfly shapes, two each from each of your three colours of card stock scrap. I wanted all six of mine to look different, so I cut out a rectangle of card stock, folded it in half ...
... and free-hand cut a butterfly shape out.
You could use a template if you wanted 6 identical butterflies.
Choose a background for your butterflies. I chose a coordinating card stock background from my stack, then to make sure the butterflies stood out, I used a white perforated scrapbook paper to overlay it.
Put aside the glass from the frame (I'm sure you can do something useful with this later ;)). Cut your background to fit inside your frame and stick it in.
Now we're ready to add our butterflies. Add a couple of foam squares to the back of each butterfly and pop them onto the background paper.
Bend up the wings on each to give it a bit of dimension, like so:
If you want it to be extra sturdy, pop some glue onto the foam and then add the butterfly, like so:
Embellish however you see fit! I added a ribbon bow to one corner, and used glue to add seed and bugle beads to the centres of the bow and each butterfly.
To give you a bit of a better idea:
Let it dry and you're done! What a clever cookie!
