I finally got around to making a butterfly collage that I have had starred/tagged since Feb. of ’08 that I saw on Ali Edwards. Instead of a punch, I used one of my Cuttle Bug cutting dies. To make lining them up easier, I used lined poster board. I used an array of paper for this project: magazine ads, patterned paper, old thank you notes and old cards. I even managed to get some pictures of food in there (i.e. grilled cheese, oreos, strawberries, lemons and hostess cupcakes)-so me. I really love how it turned out. Thank You Ali for all of the inspiration!
I love butterflies. There are so many great craft ideas with them too. You can make cupcake toppers (see above).
Right now at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, they have the most beautiful real butterflies on display in their gardens. They are huge! When their wings open up, they are bright turquoise. So beautiful.
Also, at Bath and Body they had (not sure if it is still on display) big butterfly mobiles similar to the one at PB. Sometimes if you ask, they will sell their displays.
Or better yet, save all these ideas for a rainy day and head outside to see real butterflies. Have a lovely Spring day.
