Hi again, it's me Grandma Bonnie sharing my latest cards using the 3 butterflies digital images from the SNB store. There is a set of 3 butterflies and one sentiment. I've chosen to use just 2 of the 3 butterflies. Click here to find them.
What i did:
First, enlarged the butterflies and printed them off by putting them as far down on one sheet of paper as i could. The reason for that is i wanted to make a card and i needed to fold the paper in half. I then cut out the butterfly, making a folded card. I used the same image again and printed it off. I colored both images, i didn't put as much shading on the card base because i am going to attach another butterfly on top to make it 3-d. I gathered up some tulle and placed it between the card base and the top butterfly. I used my machine and stitched through the top card base, tulle and the top butterfly. I added some stickles to the small circles on the butterfly. I used pipe cleaners for the butterfly body. I curled one antenna and measured to the bottom of the body and wrapped the pipe cleaner around until i got to the top of the head, allow some extra pipe cleaner for the other antenna and cut off. I sewed a button on for the head. Next, i used hot glue to attach the pipe cleaner body.
