Busy week this week, but I really want to get back to blogginh more regularly - it's slipped again in recent weeks!
Today I have another scrapling to share - I'm really enjoying making these - even though the surface area of the card is quite a lot smaller than a regular card, they bring a bit of extra creative ooomph with that interesting elongated shape - plus as envelopes aren't really made to fit this size. you've also got the opportunity to go a bit off-piste so to speak! You might as well take the design off the edges of the card and use the available "envelope space"
So where are those butterflies then?
Yes - the back layer of the flower is created from 4 butterfly die cuts!
Tools and Materials
All papers, inc birdie tag; MME Lost and Found "Rosy" 6x6
Ribbon and layered up Prima flowers, black brad all from stash
Die: Memory Box Butterfly
Punch: EK Success border punch
To make the butterflies into the flower, join the ends of the larger wings together to form a ring, punch a card circle for a base and apply PVA-type glue to the circle. Gather in and onto the lower wing shapes till you achieve a shape you like - using wet glue gives you time to fiddle about till you're happy with the flower shape.
Hope you like it and will give the idea a try - let me know if you do
Thanks for looking in today
