My friend Amanda is going on va-cay so I'm here to completely take over. Today 'Serenity Now', tomorrow the world, mooo hooo haaaaw haaaw!" Kidding.
I created these simple paper butterflies out of tissue paper and scrapbook paper, paired with some floral sprays, available in the wedding aisle at a craft store.
I used a butterfly template I found online and printed it out on my home printer. (Just Google 'butterfly template' to find one in a shape you like). Using the template, cut out all of your butterflies on your scrap book paper. For the tissue paper version, fold up your tissue into a square with about 6 or 8 layers and use the template to cut out the shape of a butterfly with a fluttery effect.
Wrap your floral spray around your paper butterfly, then clip off the extra sparkly sprigs so you only have two for the antennae.
Attach to branches for a whimsical effect or tape across your wall in a large pattern. Use the end of the floral spray to secure to the branch, or suspend with fishing line.
Thanks Amanda for letting me take over your blog today - hope you are having a lovely time on holiday!
I want to say a big "thank you" to Kate for being willing to help me out this week! I love stopping at Centsational Girl because not only does Kate have exquisite taste, her fun sense of humor is woven into well-crafted posts about design, home life, thrifting, and what it's like to live near San Francisco. Wish me luck while I'm in "the land of no internet and dozens of breakable knick-knacks"...it's a toddler's dream come true and a mom's worst nightmare!
